TriMech & the Best 3D Printing Interface

At 10 am EST on Wednesday the 21st, TriMech is holding its first of two webinars for the week, “Who has the Best 3D Printing Interface?” The company’s Application Engineer Dennis Barnum will discuss the different types of 3D slicing software, including their strengths and weaknesses, as well as when to use each 3D printing file type, the differences between traditional, single material, and full color CMF modeling workflows, how to eliminate inconsistent or failed parts, and more.

“3D slicing software is the proverbial bridge that connects a digital CAD file to the 3D printer itself. The program generates individual layers and toolpaths to create the blueprint for the printer to follow when building the part. Some slicing programs are far more robust and sophisticated than others, giving users control over tray and model settings to customize print parameters and optimize characteristics. But with so many different software options on the market today, how do you know which program is the right fit for you?”

Dassault Systèmes & the Virtual Twin

In its first webinar of the week, held at 11 am EST on the 21st, Dassault Systèmes will teach you about how engineering data can be used to power personalized marketing and sales experiences in an e-seminar titled “Take a Shortcut to Market Using Product Data You Already Have.” Paul Miller, Principal Analyst at Forrester, and Dassault experts Matthias Szeszat, Director Strategy at 3DEXCITE, and Tim Rau, Marketing Transformation Specialist at 3DEXCITE, will explain how connecting to and leveraging a platform-enabled virtual twin for content, collaboration, and market strategies can help ensure customer success.

“A connection to the product data means engineering and design work closely from the beginning. With access to the same model, marketing, sales, and service departments get to market quicker, provide enablement and training sooner, and launch products more nimbly. Respond quickly to quality issues, product updates, and customer sentiments. Connecting all the activities to the digital twin closes the loop between the product and customer lifecycle.”
