Velo3D’s “Seeing is Believing” Roadshow

Metal 3D printing company Velo3D recently announced its “Seeing is Believing” AM roadshow, which will tour 15 different cities this year. The focus is on educating technology influencers, decision makers, and engineers about the capabilities and benefits of AM and Velo3D’s end-to-end solution, and how these can transform their business. Those who attend the complimentary sessions will get to see and handle advanced 3D printed parts and hear presentations from Velo3D experts, and the next one will be from 9 am to 4 pm EST this Wednesday, February 23, in Detroit, Michigan. The tour will also visit California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Missouri, Illinois, North Carolina, Washington, Alabama, Utah, and Washington, D.C.

“When we talk to engineers who are interested in 3D printing technology, that interest is often accompanied by a bit of skepticism attributable to the shortcoming of conventional solutions. These events are directly aimed at helping engineers see what’s truly possible with end-to-end additive manufacturing solutions. At the event, we will introduce attendees to customers currently using additive manufacturing to build the parts they want without compromise. Attendees also get to see and handle real, as-printed parts that leverage the highest-performance designs,” said Renette Youssef, Velo3D Chief Marketing Officer.

You can register for the Detroit roadshow event here, or info@velo3d.com to request a ticket.

Teton Simulation SmartSlice Twenty with Tyler: Print Settings

Teton Simulation continues the new “Twenty with Tyler” webinar series on its SmartSlice simulation software solution continues this Wednesday, the 23rd, with the “Effects of Print Settings on Part Performance with SmartSlice.” There will be two sessions, with the first at 10 am EST and the second at 1 pm EST. Teton staff engineer Tyler Heckenlively will show attendees how SmartSlice can improve their current AM workflows by experimenting with different print settings, and then observing how they effect part performance.

“Tyler will identify some key print settings that have large effects on print performance, and we will discuss how to change these settings to improve the strength of our parts. In addition to print settings, we will also discuss SmartSlice™ requirements, and how to use these part requirements to build modifications to the print settings.”

The Great Resignation with Alexander Daniels Global

In the 2021 Alexander Daniels Global Additive Manufacturing Salary Survey Report, 33% of AM professionals in 2020 reported that they were ‘Extremely Likely’ to change jobs in the next year. The 2022 survey results proved this ended up happening, as a reported 37% of professionals in the US and 34% in the EMEA region switched jobs in 2021. So what led to this Great Resignation? Alexander Daniels Global listed several reasons, including burnout, early retirement, and the freedom people enjoyed while working from home. To learn more about the effects of this phenomenon, you’ll want to attend the company’s webinar, “The Effects of the Great Resignation on the Hiring Landscape,” on the 23rd at 11 am EST.

Join Alexander Daniels Global for their upcoming webinar where the effects of the Great Resignation are discussed in more detail, with supporting data as published in the 2022 AM Salary Survey Report, and tips for what can be done to improve retention hiring strategies.”

Velo3D: Solving O&G Supply Chain Pressure

Also on the 23rd, at 1 pm EST, Velo3D will hold a webinar on “The Secret to Solving O&G Supply Chain Pressure.” Zach Walton, Velo3D’s Director of Business Development, and Steve Freitas, R&D Director of IMI-CCI, will discuss the success of 3D printing mission-critical parts for the oil and gas industry in this VELOVirtual session. Topics include the supply chain and certification challenges of AM, achieving a scalable AM supply chain, realizing design intent for maximum performance, and more.

“Parts like IMI-CCI’s High Pressure Flow Control Element take full advantage of AM to produce geometrically complex, strong, and lightweight designs. And at IMI-CCI, parts like this have been at the center of an entirely new business unit designed to help customers find flow control solutions with AM technology.

“But our next VELOVirtual tells a different story—one about the other half of the journey. What happens after you prove the concept? The transition to AM requires careful consideration, new standards, and a scaled, global supply chain approach. How do you resolve these challenges?”

TriMech on 3DSculptor Tool

If you’re interested in learning more about 3DEXPERIENCE tools, you’ll want to tune in to TriMech‘s webinar at 2 pm EST on the 23rd, “Little Known Tools You Already Own on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform: Designing in 3DSculptor (XFO).” The 3DSculptor role on 3DEXPERIENCE has the xShape app for 3D modeling, which allows users to create complex models that quickly connect with the parametric modeling application. TriMech Solutions Consultant Wayne White will go over the xShape app and review the techniques for modifying and manipulating shapes, how to define xApps, saving and sharing files between users, and more.

“There are many things that separate xShape from many standard modeling applications today- understanding sub-division modeling is key. Wayne will review many of the techniques in which you can modify and manipulate shapes, but also understand how you can define specific dimensional data as well.”
