We’ve got another busy week of webinars and events, both live and online, to tell you about in this week’s roundup! Topics run the gamut from 3D printing aircraft cabin parts and Materialise Mimics software to a new 3D printer, transitioning to a digital workflow for orthotics and prosthetics, and much more. Read on for all the details!

Aircraft Cabin Additive Manufacturing Summit

First up this week is the virtual Red Cabin Aircraft Cabin Additive Manufacturing summit, hosted by Safran and sponsored by Materialise and EOS. In this third edition of the summit, running from Tuesday, June 8th through Thursday, June 10th, experts from the aerospace industry will discuss the latest developments and challenges in additive manufacturing, share their insights, and explore the potential additive manufacturing has in helping achieve peak productivity through reducing costs and waste, optimizing designs, decreasing lead times, and de-risking supply chains. There will be networking opportunities, working groups and panel discussions, keynote speeches, and live Q&A sessions, all on a variety of topics from certifications and simulations to 3D printing collaborations between suppliers, airlines, and manufacturers.

“This summit will be an interactive platform to take the next steps into 3D printing of aircraft cabin interior parts and beyond: Exchange on latest updates of additive manufacturing for cabin interiors, collaborate on part design strategies as well as material and certification challenges and participate in workshops on new opportunities. Now is the perfect time to shape the future for additive manufactured cabin interiors.”

Kickoff for America Makes Open Project Call

From 2-3 pm EST on the 8th, America Makes will be conducting an Open Project Call (OPC) Kick-off, and Rapid Innovation Call (RIC) Informational Webinar, in order to review all of the criteria for its latest OPC and RIC. Its intent is to officially launch an RIC at the beginning of August when future funding opportunities will be available, and America Makes is currently seeking topic submissions by July 2nd. The new OPC is worth $1.6 million in funding from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Manufacturing and Industrial Base Technology Division, with a goal of speeding up “the development and deployment of innovative, cost-effective, and energy-efficient additive manufacturing (AM) technologies to meet defense and/or commercial needs.”

“This Open Project Call represents a vast array of topics and opportunities to benefit our membership and our industry at large. As our first OPC of 2021, we are thrilled with the efforts of our Roadmap Advisory and Working Groups for their contributions in identifying, prioritizing, and developing these technology and education and workforce development topics. We also appreciate the provided insightful membership input that helped to further enhance this OPC,” said Brandon D. Ribic, Ph.D., America Makes Technology Director. “I look forward to receiving the quality and innovative responses that we have come to expect from our membership community.”

AM Solutions Starts Live Event Series 

Also at 9 am on the 9th, AM Solutions will begin Inside AM, its six-part live event series in which representatives from companies in different industrial sectors will give a behind-the-scenes look at their operations and discuss their AM applications, experience, visions, and obstacles that still need to be overcome. The interactive live stream events will be accessible from anywhere in the world and conducted in English and will offer valuable information for AM users, in addition to anyone who’s interested in the technology but hasn’t adopted it just yet. Moderated by Georg Schöpf, the editor-in-chief of Additive Fertigung magazine, and broadcast from the new Customer Experience Center of AM Solutions, participants will report on the status of AM in their respective industries and companies, while viewers will have the chance to ask questions live. The guest at this first Inside AM event will be Christoph Hansen, the Director of Technology & Innovation at Sauber Engineering AG, which has used 3D printing multiple times in the past.

“Anybody, who deals with the subject Additive Manufacturing, is probably overwhelmed by reports about the numerous innovative applications of this technology,” said Manuel Laux, Head of AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology, which is a brand of the Rösler Group. “With our interesting interactive event, we, jointly with our guests, want to shine a light on the question ‘Additive Manufacturing changes the world. Is this just a vision or already real?’ and provide information on the actual situation.”

You can register for the first episode here. The subsequent Inside AM live online events will take place once a month, and exact dates and time will be relayed later.

TriMech Provides Intro to DELMIAWORKS 2021

TriMech will explain how Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP, can help manufacturing companies manage and integrate the main parts of their business in a brief webinar, “Introduction to DELMIAworks 2021,” at 10 am EST on Wednesday, June 9th. Stephen Petrock, a TriMech Elite Application Engineer, will discuss how ERP by DELMIAworks can help you improve your business, how to configure the system to your business, and why it’s a good choice to gain real-time visibility to the typically disconnected systems in your business, like marketing, sales, quality, and shipping.

“Enterprise Resource Planning or “ERP” is a tool to help companies manage and integrate core components of their business. In this webinar, we will review why DelmiaWorks is the best choice for manufacturing companies.”

Riven Demonstrates Quick Re-Scaling Tool

L: Compare-to-CAD results for a first FDM part scanned and processed with Riven’s re-scaling tool to find X,Y,Z re-scaling factors. R: results for a second printed part with re-scaling factors applied before printing.

Recently, Riven introduced a new re-scaling tool that automatically rescales models for 3D printed parts so they more accurately match the as-intended CAD file scaling. This Wednesday the 9th at 1 pm EST, the company’s founder and CTO, James Page, will hold a live demonstration of Riven’s quick re-scaling tool, and how it can save iterations and budget with parts that fit right the first time. During the webinar, “Scale with Scaling Factors,” Page will demonstrate how fast the company’s re-scaling tool can achieve clear results without having to change your 3D printer, as well as how to properly use the Riven Propel scanner and Riven Cloud.

“Recognizing that all 3D printed parts shrink or warp during the printing process, Riven is introducing a new re-scaling tool that makes it easy to print parts more accurately. Riven’s software automatically computes re-scaling factors as compared to the original CAD. All processes, from FDM through metal 3D printing, can be made more accurate with quick 3D re-scaling. Unlike checking limited dimensions with calipers or a CMM, Riven uses a full part capture to compute an optimal solution based on the entire part shape to produce a more accurate result.”

You can register for the demonstration here, and receive Riven’s complete report on its new Scaling Factors feature.

Introduction to RIZE 7XC 3D Printer

Last summer, 3D printer manufacturer RIZE launched its large-format, industrial composite system, the RIZE 7XC, which features dual nozzles for multimaterial printing and higher thermal dimensional stability, and leverages the company’s Rizium composite materials. At 2 pm EST on the 9th for the Americas, and 12 pm GMT on the 10th for Europe and Asia, RIZE will hold a webinar, “Introducing RIZE 7XC – Expanding What’s Possible with Composite 3D Printing.” Attendees will have a chance to see one of the company’s in-house expert engineers demonstrate “the 7XC’s ease-of-use and impressive capabilities,” and learn more about the printer as well.

“Covered topics include:

  • Expanding What’s Possible with Composite 3D PrintingWith a build volume of 370 x 390 x 450 mm (14.6 x 15.4 x 17.7 in), Rize 7XC offers superior large-format 3D Printing alongside a multitude of smart and convenient features.
