GE Additive: Design for Metal Binder Jetting

At 10 am EST on the 16th, GE Additive is holding the latest in its webinar series, called “Design for Metal Binder Jet: A Way to Create a Winning Business Case.” Staff Engineer Jinjie Shi, Lead Designer Chris Bryant, and Binder Jet Modality Leader Jacob Brunsberg will discuss the advantages of designing for metal binder jet printing, and how it can be an effective method for producing parts for serial production. Topics will include material properties, the binder jet design process, total part cost, its advantages over casting, part examples, and more.

Additive manufacturing has long been recognized as a disruptive approach to maximizing design freedom and improving part performance. Metal additive has been evolving to become an alternative to traditional manufacturing methods. Meanwhile, metal binder jetting has increased the build rate by orders of magnitude, making it a viable replacement now for traditional manufacturing, in particular castings. The combination of Binder Jet’s technology advancements and innovative designs is helping to facilitate the leap to large-scale production.”

Desktop Metal & nTopology on DfAM

On Wednesday the 16th from 11 am to 2 pm EST, Desktop Metal and nTopology are holding a joint webinar on “Design for Additive Manufacturing.” Attendees will learn what to consider when designing parts for additive manufacturing, also known as DfAM, and the differences between Desktop Metal and EnvisionTEC’s 3D printing capabilities. Additionally, the webinar will provide some customer examples of optimized additive parts and how nTopology enables designers and engineers to use AM to its best potential.

“Over the next decade, additive manufacturing will enable new products to feature unprecedented levels of complexity, be 30-50% lighter, and be mass-customized to each local market.

“Join this event to learn about how you can start realizing some of these benefits today, from tips and tricks when designing parts for 3D printing in CAD, to next-generation technologies like topology optimization software to unlock the full potential of 3D printing in metals, polymers and elastomers.”

Materialise Mimics Enlight LAAO Planner

The last webinar of the week, “Explore the Mimics Enlight LAAO Planner,” will be held at 11 am EST on Thursday the 17th. With a live Q&A session, technical experts Michael Forbes and Winthe Vandoren, Cardiovascular Technical Consultants for Materialise Mimics Enlight, along with Dr. Abdel Hakim Moustafa, will demonstrate the benefits of left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) case planning with 3D-CT using Mimics Enlight, and how to use Materialise’s new LAAO planner.

“~20% of LAAO cases can become challenging during delivery due to complex anatomies. 3D-CT planning has proven 100% procedural success (compared to 92% with 2D-TEE) and a 25% reduction is procedural time (versus 2D-TEE)*. Pre-procedural 3D-CT planning can help reduce issues during challenging procedures by improving the accuracy, efficacy and safety of LAAO.”
