TÜV SÜD Continues Virtual Training Series
This spring, international service corporation TÜV SÜD introduced a series of virtual training courses focused on additive manufacturing. The seminars, taught in English, will address eight different subjects, including quality and production management, health and safety, process and design validation, industry standards, and more. The first round of these classes has already been completed, and the second round, starting with “Fundamentals of Additive Manufacturing,” begins this Tuesday and Wednesday, September 21st and 22nd, at 2 am EST.
“As industrialisation advances in additive manufacturing, the need for specialist expertise is becoming increasingly urgent. In addition, qualifications in this field are often still based on individual solutions, although an integrated approach is the only way to ensure a company’s operations are successful along the entire value chain,” Gregor Reischle, Head of Additive Manufacturing at TÜV SÜD, said back when the classes were first introduced.
TriMech: Design Review in 3DEXPERIENCE with Prototypes
TriMech Application Engineers Chris Duchaine and Chris Mowatt will cover “A Design Review with Virtual Real Prototypes in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform” at 10 am EST on Tuesday the 21st, to explain how SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform can allow for uninterrupted work, no matter where various team members are located. By using the 3DEXPERIENCE Connector for SOLIDWORKS, engineers are connected directly to data management tool 3D Space in order to view, share, and control SOLIDWORKS files through a web browser. Duchaine and Mowatt will explain how to get started with 3DEXPERIENCE, how to use SOLIDWORKS Connected, storing and managing files using 3D Space, and more.
“Two of our SOLIDWORKS experts were collaborating on the design of an aftermarket car spoiler, but had their progress interrupted due to COVID-19. Since they were no longer able to work together in their office, they needed a fast and easy solution to continue to share their files and collaborate remotely. Luckily, the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform offered a simple, cloud based solution that has enabled them to continue to use the SOLIDWORKS tools they love while keeping the files they create secure and accessible on the cloud.”

3rd Edition of AAMS International Business Summit
The third edition of international business summit Aerospace Additive Manufacturing Summit (AAMS) will take place this Wednesday and Thursday, September 22nd and 23rd, at the MEETT Exhibition Center in Toulouse, France. Technology disruptions, like 3D printing, are more important in the aerospace industry than ever, and this event welcomes many of the important players in this sector, including researchers, suppliers, manufacturers, SMEs, and both small and major companies. The first day will be dedicated to panels and keynote presentations on topics including market trends, how to finance investments, the role of the aerospace sector, development of 3D printing, hybrid printing and Factory 4.0, and more, while the second day will feature workshops and pre-programmed BTOB meetings with representatives from companies like Burloak Technologies, Hexagon, Materialise, Siemens Software, and more.
Masks will be mandatory, hand sanitizer stations will be set up around the venue, and social distancing is requested. In addition, visitors from France and the European Union will be required to show a valid EU digital COVID certificate, while non-EU visitors must present either proof of full vaccination or a negative result from a PCR or rapid antigen test from less than 72 hours before the event. You can sign up for the summit here, and access the virtual platform here.
Hubs Hosting Women in Tech Talks Event
Hubs, recently purchased by Protolabs, is hosting a three-day online event, “Do Develop Disrupt Talks x Women in Tech,” from September 22-24, that’s focused on helping women develop their tech careers in STEM fields. A variety of speakers on the agenda will present tech-specific talks on topics such as machine learning, 3D printing, and engineering, as well as how to overcome gender bias, make the STEM workplace more inclusive, how to become and/or recognize an ally, and how to succeed in this male-dominated environment. Each talk lasts an hour, with 30-45 minutes allotted for the speaker and the last 15 or so meant for a Q&A session, and there will also be a short virtual stretching session each day as well.
“The number of STEM jobs available is on the rise, but women are still underrepresented in these fields at every level, from junior roles to upper management. We want to show young women the opportunities that come from working in tech, like the chance to be involved in cutting-edge innovations and the competitive salaries. Our roster of speakers will highlight how they’ve achieved success and provide a roadmap for other aspiring STEM workers.”
You can register for the three-day event here.
TriMech: The Potential of FDM Additive Manufacturing
In its second webinar of the week, TriMech will discuss “Understanding the Potential of Additive Manufacturing: FDM” at 10 am EST on Wednesday the 22nd. Additive Manufacturing Application Engineer Andrew Sink will explain to attendees how FDM 3D printing is being used today to help companies improve on their bottom line by saving money, resources, and time. He’ll explain the common applications of 3D printing, how to identify opportunities for the technology, and highlight case studies from companies that have benefited from adopting FDM systems.
“Additive Manufacturing is no longer just a buzzword seen on the news. It is being implemented as a cost-saving technology at every stage in the manufacturing process. Are you ready to learn more about where and how to implement FDM 3D printing with Stratasys 3D printers?”

Shining 3D Holding Online Launch for Intraoral Scanner
Moving on to Thursday, September 23rd, Shining 3D is holding an online launch event for its new intraoral 3D scanner, the Aoralscan 3, at 4 am EST. The scanner, also being launched in person this week at the IDS 2021 dental trade fair in Cologne, Germany, is said to offer a faster scanning speed, greater scan depth, optimized algorithms and imaging mechanisms for more accuracy, and a slimmer, longer autoclavable scanner tip for a more comfortable experience.
“Aoralscan 3 is suitable for various clinical scenarios including acquiring scan bodies and periodontal scans.”
You can register for the launch event here. If you happen to be in Cologne this week, you can also stop by Shining 3D’s Stand #L040-M041 in Hall 3.1 to see the new Aoralscan 3 in person.
3D Systems on High Density Stacking
If you’re in the Eastern time zone and are up for the 3D scanner launch, you might as well stay online for 3D Systems’ webinar, “Advancing Additive Productivity with Figure 4 High Density Stacking,” at 5 am. Patrick Dunne, Vice President of Advanced Application Development and leader of the Application Development Lab in Berkeley, CA—part of the company’s Application Innovation Group—and Kevin Hsu, an advanced applications engineer with the AIG, will be discussing a major improvement in build efficiency with 3D Systems’ new solution for high density part stacking; spoiler alert, it leverages efficient nesting, optimized support structures, and the build height of the Figure 4 printer to allow for more batch printing and post-processing.
“Thanks to new materials, faster print speeds, and innovative workflows, additive manufacturing (AM) is transitioning from its primary use as a prototyping tool to an efficient and productive option for scaled manufacturing that is competitive with traditional manufacturing methods like injection molding. And because additive manufacturing offers greater supply chain flexibility and fast part turnaround, it is a uniquely strong solution for low-volume and bridge manufacturing, as well as mass customization.”
