We’ve got another crazy busy week of 3D printing webinars and events coming up, so let’s just dive right in to all of the details!

European Military AM Symposium

First up, the Additive Manufacturing in Military EU conference will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 12th and 13th, in Bonn, Germany. Organized by the German Association for Defence Technology, with support from the European Defence Agency (EDA), this symposium will be held at the Maritim Hotel and discuss the military perspective on AM technology.

“The advantages in production and manufacturing are obvious and reach from conventionally ‘unconstructible’ structures to cost savings and advanced mechanical characteristics. From a military perspective, another point could be even more interesting: the logistical footprint is highly driven by spare parts.”

AM2021 Conference & Expo

From October 12-14, the Additive Manufacturing 2021 Conference & Expo will be held at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Focused solely on AM for industrial parts and held jointly with the Top Shops Expo, attendees can enjoy three days of immersive learning about the latest 3D printing developments, including exhibits, sessions, and networking opportunities. Plus, you don’t want to miss the winners of the Cool Parts Showcase!

“As the first and only event focused exclusively on additive technologies for industrial part production, the conference takes a practical, applications-based look at the machines, materials and methodologies being used to create end-use tools and components. The event is designed for owners, executives and engineers at contract manufacturers, as well as OEMs involved in durable goods manufacturing.”

3D Printing in Hospitals with 3DHEALS

Our last webinar this week is “3D Printing in Hospitals” with 3DHEALS, from 3-4:30 pm EST on Thursday the 14th. Many hospitals have started using medical images not only for diagnostics but also for patient-specific surgical planning, which 3D printing has definitely helped with. A panel of experts will discuss this topic during the webinar: Kerim Genc, Business Development Manager for the Simpleware Product Group at Synopsys; Shannon Walters, Executive Manager of the Stanford 3D and Quantitative Imaging Lab; Paul Fotheringham, Founder of 3D LifePrints (3DLP); and Albert S. Woo, MD, FACS, an Associate Professor of Surgery, Pediatrics and Neurosurgery at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Plastic Surgery, Director of the Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and founding Director of the Lifespan 3D Printing Laboratory at Rhode Island Hospital.

“In recent years, many hospitals have started making a shift, from using medical images primarily for diagnostic purposes, to integrating them in patient-specific surgical planning. This has created enormous advantages for hospitals and their patients and is largely supported by the clarifying regulatory landscape, increased governmental support, new public and private initiatives, and the expanding role of the radiologist as an imaging expert. As part of this, an increasing number of hospitals across the world have integrated the practice of 3D printing into their medical care. Hospitals are recognizing the added value it brings to personalized patient care and the countless possibilities that are becoming a reality, in creating better treatment options.”
