While there are still plenty of webinars to attend this week, we’ve also got some virtual events and training opportunities, including nTop Week, TÜV SÜD virtual training, the NAMIC Virtual Summit, and more. Stay tuned for the details below!

nTop Week: Reintroducing the First Principles of nTopology

Starting on Monday, April 26th and going through Thursday, the 29th, nTopology will be hosting nTop Week: Engineering Design. With keynote and partner presentations, live demonstrations, student design competition talks, and more, the company will be reintroducing the first principles of its nTopology software, and what they mean for design, engineering, and manufacturing. Each day will begin at 10:30 am EST, and attendees will also have the chance to pose questions to nTopology’s product, simulation, and application engineering teams at the end.

“In April 2019, we launched nTop Platform (now simply called nTopology). And more than just a new Platform launch, what we actually introduced was a new paradigm in geometry creation for engineering. Since then, we have discussed and demonstrated mostly the features we introduced. However, reflecting on all of the revolutionary designs that have been enabled with nTopology, now it is time to use the value of these applications and explain more about the fundamental shift in approach that we call: Engineering Design.”

Avi Cohen Special Guest on Webinar Series

Warsaw-based technological company Sygnis New Technologies specializes in 3D printing, biotechnology, technological consulting, R&D projects, and educating an international audience on these topics. As such, it conducts what it calls “cyclical webinars,” called “Knowledge has Layers,” which, as a press release from the company explains, “is an attempt to show the theoretical and practical side of additive technologies.” The monthly series of free webinars works to demonstrate and explain, both practically and theoretically, additive manufacturing, thanks to special guest speakers who are experts from many fields. This month’s special guest is industry expert Avi Cohen, who has held senior positions at both Stratasys and XJet and joined precision microstructure production company Nanofabrica last year. In this webinar cycle, three will be held on Monday the 26th, three on Wednesday the 28th, and two on Friday the 30th, covering topics in science, industry, and biotechnology.

“We invite you to regular workshops in the form of webinars, during which you will learn about the application of additive technologies in theory and practice. The series of webinars will be held periodically, every month. Each time we invite exceptional guests to cooperate with us, who will talk about the latest technological solutions and implementations in both the industrial and scientific sectors. Below you will find a list of all webinars, divided into three main thematic segments.”

ASTM International’s Request for Ideas Webinar

Recently, the ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) launched its annual Request for Ideas (RFI) to the greater AM community, to seek out new R&D projects that could help speed up the development of industry standards. At 10 am EST on Tuesday the 27th, the AM CoE is holding a free informational webinar, which will last less than two hours, about this year’s RFI, which will end up selecting the organization’s fourth round of projects. All ideas will be evaluated based on a set of criteria that includes a narrow scope of work (completed in 6-9 months), a focus on important AM standardization gaps, and level of interest from important industry stakeholders. You are allowed to submit AM standardization multiple ideas.

“The Request for Ideas (RFI) is an annual call to the AM community to identify R&D projects that would accelerate AM standards development. After review, selected projects are conducted by the AM CoE partners: Auburn University, EWI, The Manufacturing Technology Centre (mtc), NAMIC, NASA, and WSU-NIAR.  Proposing organizations may support both technical and standardization steps of selected projects.”

TÜV SÜD Introduces Virtual Training Series

International service corporation TÜV SÜD, which focuses on consulting, testing, certification, and training, has introduced a series of virtual training courses focused on additive manufacturing in order to train product designers, production managers, quality managers, and other specialists. The seminars, given in English, will address a total of eight different subjects, including fundamentals, health and safety, process and design validation, industry standards, and more. The first course, “Fundamentals of Additive Manufacturing (AM),” will be given in two virtual, four-hour sessions, with the first held this Wednesday, April 28th, at 2 am EST (8 am CEST), and the second on September 21st.

“Additive Manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a sector that is growing fast, especially in the field of serial production where stakeholders have high expectations of the technology’s use. As this is still fairly new technology, there is a gap in skilled professionals in the industry. TÜV SÜD has developed a series of training modules on different topics within the Additive Manufacturing process. You can gain the knowledge and receive important information about different area of responsibility in additive manufacturing such as process chains, materials, business models/quality and production management.”

TriMech Discusses SOLIDWORKS PDM

Our final webinar this week is from TriMech, and “A Day in the Life of An Engineer With and Without PDM” will take place at 10 am EST on the 29th. Elite Application Engineer Andrew Head will explain the difference between performing everyday engineering tasks with Windows Explore and SOLIDWORKS PDM. Attendees will learn how PDM can ensure easier collaboration, mobile access, revision history, and secure file storage during project management, as Head will show how each step in the process, from design and approval to data updates, can be more difficult than necessary when you’re not using PDM.

“How can you be sure you’re using your SOLIDWORKS data efficiently? SOLIDWORKS PDM can help you stay on top of your data and make sure nothing falls through the cracks. It can be overwhelming at the vast number of files you can have on your hard drive, in addition to any you have on a shared network. Instead of wasting time searching for things, SolidWorks PDM can make that data do the work for you.”
