TriMech Webinars on Stratasys and SOLIDWORKS

For another week running, Stratasys and SOLIDWORKS reseller TriMech is hosting two short webinars. The first, “Get to Know DriveWorks,” is at 10 am EST on Tuesday the 26th, and TriMech Application Engineer Dave Ramsey will discuss how you can use automation tool DriveWorks Solo to increase profitability while decreasing costs by automating your custom designs. Ramsey will explain what DriveWorks is, how it connects to SOLIDWORKS, how to use its 3D CPQ configurator software to streamline your custom part quoting process, and more, such as setting up interactive user input forms.

At 10 am EST on Wednesday, January 27th, Alex Pestana, another TriMech Application Engineer, will present “Maintenance Tips and Tricks to Start Your New Year.” A lot of people make New Year’s Resolutions, and one that TriMech often hears is how people aim to keep up with their 3D printer maintenance. Pestana will discuss some good maintenance tips and habits, such as material storage and handling and replacing print heads, and focus specifically on how to properly care for Stratasys FDM and PolyJet printers.

GE Additive on Designing for Binder Jet 3D Printing

Also on Wednesday, at 10 am est, GE Additive is holding its latest webinar, titled “The Technical Drivers Behind Designing for Binder Jet and How the Technology Compares to Casting.” Attendees will learn about the new innovations in binder jetting, its advantages and what drives design consideration for this technology, and how it compares to traditional casting. The speakers will be GE Additive consulting engineers Shannon Jagodinski and Valeria Stoughton, as well as Jacob Brunsberg, GE Additive’s Modality Leader, Binder Jet.

Over the past several years, many industries have embraced the design freedoms and production capabilities of additive manufacturing. Even though AM has realized increasing acceptance as an alternative to traditional manufacturing, it has not been seen as an economical replacement for castings.  However, as additive technology advances, it is becoming a viable, cost-effective method for large-scale production.

“Binder Jet is one emerging additive technology that can have a tremendous impact on traditional supply chains and is an efficient method for producing innovative components quickly and at scale.”

Markforged on AM’s Environmental Impact

On the 27th at 11 am EST, Markforged will hold an open house webinar called “Environmental Impact of Additive Manufacturing and the Supply Chain.” Daniel Lazier, a Strategic Application Engineer with the company, will be the featured speaker in this webinar, which examines conventional supply chains and their carbon footprints, and how we can reduce carbon emissions and lower the footprint by adopting additive manufacturing with digital supply change. There will be time for questions and answers at the end.

“As we continue to grapple with the existential threat of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the reference frame in which we think of other crises is shifting dramatically. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic in the coming year the number one crisis we will be confronted with is Climate Change. While many of us take conscientious actions as individuals to reduce our carbon footprint, the decisions we make as companies and organizations can have a far greater impact on climate change objectives.”

VELO3D: Powerful 3D Printed Cooling Channels

Engineers from VELO3D and nTopology will discuss how customer KW Micro Power used 3D printing in a webinar at 1 pm EST on Wednesday the 27th, titled “How 3D Printed Cooling Channels Equal More Power.” Gene Miller, a Senior Applications Engineer for VELO3D, and Dr. Ryan P. O’Hara, nTopology’s Technical Director for Aerospace and Defense, will discuss with KW Micro Power president Enrique Enriquez how 3D printing was able to help the company achieve a 44% weight reduction and a higher power density for one of its cooling parts. Attendees will hear how nTopology’s design software and VELO3D’s metal 3D printing can combine to help fabricate a lightweight part with conformal channels that helps make the system more efficient.

“Engineers have long understood that keeping components at their critical operating temperature leads to higher performance and longer lifetimes. Adding cooling channels into a design to aid in thermal management can be both difficult to design and expensive to manufacture. Through the use of nTopology and VELO3D’s advanced solution managing heat in your systems is easier than ever.
