Happy Halloween, and welcome to this week’s webinar and event roundup! We’ve got several multi-day events, both in-person and online, to tell you about, starting with ICAM 2021, and then plenty of webinars about topics ranging from cybersecurity and cardiac 3D reconstruction to software, 3D printing for animals, and more. Read on for all the details!

ASTM’s ICAM 2021

The first event this week is a hybrid one: the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ICAM) 2021, hosted by ASTM International’s Additive Manufactured Center of Excellence (AMCoE) from November 1-5. The conference will be held in-person at the JW Marriot, Anaheim Resort in California, with the option to attend virtually as well, and whichever option you’re more comfortable with, you don’t want to miss it, as the event will include nearly 600 presentations covering 26 symposia, four certificate courses, and an Awards Ceremony for the Student Presentation Competition winners and recipients of the ASTM International Young Professional in AM Award and the Awards of Excellence. Keynote speakers include Tracy Frost with the Department of Defense, Tom Kurfess with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Terry Wohlers from Wohlers Associates, and more. Plus, I will be attending this event in-person, and I’m excited to see everyone and check out some really interesting presentations.

“This is ASTM International’s sixth annual flagship event related to standardization, qualification and certification with an emphasis on industry specific requirements addressing the entire AM process chain. ICAM 2021 will involve numerous ASTM committees and external stakeholders, setting the stage to bring experts from all around the world to exchange the latest developments in the field of additive manufacturing with emphasis on transition of research to application.

3D Printing for Animals with 3DHEALS

Finally, at 2 pm EST on Thursday the 4th, 3DHEALS will discuss “3D Printing for Animals” with a group of international speakers who use 3D printing and other innovative technologies to take care of our furry family members and other animals. Sponsored by HP, the speakers for this webinar are Matteo Zanfabro, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and R&D member for PlayCast and PlayVet; veterinarian Dr. Johnny Uday, a 3D biomodeler and researcher and owner of AXIS 3D Medical Printing; Mateusz Pawlik, co-founder of CABIOMEDE and CEO of Pets Analytics; and Alexander Tholl, Co-Founder of DiveDesign.

“According to American Pet Product Association (APPA), the current pet-related product industry is worth more than 100 billion dollars, where one-third is veterinary-related products based on 2020 data. There is a steady growth of this remarkable industry, but there are definitely more pet owners now than ever after the pandemic. Some interesting veterinary-related data can be found here.

“According to AVMA, Vets experienced a 50% increase in new pets per week Mar-Aug. 2020. Similar to human society, the pet market experiences similar supply chain and manufacturing challenges. Can 3D printing provide better, more efficient veterinary care and a more robust supply chain than the traditional way of things?”
