EOS Continues Basics of 3D Printing Series

EOS began its webinar series on Industrial 3D Printing: Most Common Questions last month, and continues this Monday the 14th at 11 am EST with Polymer 3D Printing: 10 Most Common Questions. Attendees will learn the answers to the top questions related to polymer 3D printing, such as available materials and their performance, when it makes sense to use polymer 3D printing as opposed to other manufacturing methods, size and quality of parts, and more. This session will feature speakers Dr. Cary Baur, Manager of Polymer Material R&D and Applications Development, EOS North America; Andrea Weichselbaumer, Senior Application Specialist and Senior Training Specialist for Polymers, EOS; and James Anderton, Director of Content, engineering.com.

“New capabilities are helping AM increase its foothold, not only with prototyping, but also with end-use parts. This is especially true with polymers, where several technologies and a wide variety of materials are now available. But hardware is only part of the equation. To deliver maximum value, comprehensive solutions also require software, processes and expertise.”

Teton Simulation SmartSlice Twenty with Tyler: FFF Materials

A new webinar series on SmartSlice, the embedded software simulation solution by Teton Simulation, starts this Wednesday the 16th. “Twenty with Tyler,” short interactive webinars featuring Teton staff engineer Tyler Heckenlively, will be held at 10 am EST and 1 pm EST, and focus on “Confidence in Material Selection with SmartSlice,” looking at material selection for FFF 3D printed parts. Attendees will learn how to improve their current AM workflow with SmartSlice, and get a brief introduction of common engineering materials, learn to identify which ones are best for different applications, use SmartSlice to see the effects of material selection on part performance, and more.

“Tyler will identify a variety of commercially available 3D printing materials, and use SmartSlice™ to demonstrate the effects these materials can have on a part’s mechanical performance. Using SmartSlice™ we will be able to identify how changing the material can affect a part’s factor of safety and displacement under load, and how to use this information to make the right material selection for your part.”

You can register for Session 1 at 10 am here, and Session 2 at 1 pm here.

Improve Patient Screening with 3D CT & Materialise

Materialise will teach attendees how its new Mimics Enlight version can help enhance patient planning, and improve confidence for TMVR and LAAO procedures, in its 11 am EST March 16th webinar, “Leveraging 3D CT to Improve Patient Screening and Planning for Structural Heart Interventions.” Professor Thomas Modine, MD, PhD, MBA with the University Hospital Center (CHU) of Bordeaux, France, along with Dr. Ralph Stephan von Bardeleben, MD with Germany’s University Medical Center in Mainz and Materialise Technical Consultant Clare Otto, M.S.E., will discuss how 3D planning increased their confidence for these procedures and improved patient planning with Mimics Enlight’s infused AI and workflow automation.

“For 3D planning, CT images are converted into accurate 3D models of the patient’s heart and surrounding structures. Being able to zoom in, rotate, and measure directly on the patient’s virtual heart can give you a better understanding of the patient pathology, more realistic exploration of potential device-anatomy interaction, and deeper insights into how best to deliver a transcatheter implant.”

Dassault & Mobile Devices: Design of Experiment Optimization

At 4 pm EST on Wednesday the 16th, Dassault Systèmes will hold a live webinar on “Design of Experiment Optimization for Mobile Devices.” Charles Yuan, Senior SIMULIA Industry Process Consultant, will be the speaker for this webinar, during which a drop workflow will be reviewed for a generic, high-tech mobile device. Attendees will hear about the structural integrity of the device casing, optimal design parameters once the manufacturing tolerances have been taken into account, optimization for weight, and more.

“Consumer devices have become a staple in daily life. They exist at home, on our body and in our pockets. These devices, such as smartphones, home speakers and fitness trackers, need to be strong enough to withstand the rigors of everyday life. At the same time, consumers are looking for something both stylish and affordable. Devices should be lightweight and feel like a natural extension of the body, but not so lightweight that they fail due to material and/or production non-uniformities.”

Prime VR2 DfAM Workshop: Future Interactive Devices

The PRIME-VR2 project, funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 program, is working to develop an innovative digital environment for at-home VR rehabilitation through a virtual gaming space that will provide proper stimulation and friendly competition with 3D printed bespoke controllers and supporting IT platform. As part of the multidisciplinary project consortium, the University of Malta will hold a free international training workshop on Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM): Future Interactive Devices (DEFINED) on March 17th and 18th. The goal of the workshop is to explore the adoption of interactive product design approach in AM, as well as integrating display, sensor, and illumination elements that can be directly embedded in the structure of the products. There will be multiple keynote speakers, as well as a special session for participants to disseminate their research interests and try to form consortia for new Horizon 2020 proposals.

“We are hoping to safely welcome attendees to Valletta, Malta in March of this year to discuss the research and industrial challenges of applying Design for Additive Manufacturing principles for a new generation of interactive devices,” said workshop chair Professor Ing. Philip Farrugia. “This workshop will be an excellent opportunity for relevant parties to network, interactive and help progress this important future research area.”

Smart Manufacturing Experience Webinar Series

Finally, the Smart Manufacturing Experience is coming to Pittsburgh in June, but ahead of the event, SME Media is sponsoring a complimentary webinar series to give you a taste of what you’ll learn at the big event this summer. The webinar for March will be held at 3 pm this Thursday, March 17th, and focus on “How to Deploy Digital Solutions to Manage Workflow and Achieve High ROI.” Moderated by Dan Braley, Associate Technical Fellow – Additive Manufacturing Technical Focal & Initiatives Lead for Boeing Global Services, the webinar will feature guest speakers Andre Wegner, the CEO of Authentise Inc., and Nick Weeks, Plant Manager at Carpenter Additive. They will offer their insights on how to create successful digital deployments in manufacturing that deliver high ROI, and how to manage the workflow in high mix manufacturing operations with technology, among other topics.

“Get insight from manufacturing operations leaders about what it takes to create successful digital deployments in manufacturing delivering high return-on-investment (ROI) through efficiencies, traceability and repeatability. The conversation focuses on how to manage the workflow in high-mix manufacturing operations with the aid of technology, how the technology can adapt to existing processes rather than the other way around, and how we can encourage operator acceptance.”
