June 14: SME’s Voices AMplified

SME is holding a Voices AMplified webinar, called “Views from the Top – Perspectives from AM Industry Leaders,” at 2 pm EST on June 14th. Hosted by Senvol President Zach Simkin, the webinar will look at the AM industry’s 30+ year history, and focus on historical perspectives and personal stories and anecdotes from three people who really helped shape the industry into what we see today: Terry Wohlers, the Founder of Wohlers Associates; Brent Stucker, Chief Scientist at 3D Systems; and Jason Jones, the Co-Founder and CEO of Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies. Attendees can expect to gain new perspective on where the AM industry is going, and how they may be affected.

“This webinar will explore the 30+ year additive manufacturing (AM) industry history. It was not that long ago that the AM “industry” was just a handful of folks in a room sharing ideas. Through the hard work and vision of the technology’s early adopters, however, the AM industry has blossomed over the past three decades. We are at a fortunate time in the industry’s history in that most of the industry’s early founders are still around to tell their stories.”

June 14: ASME & 3D Printing High-Performance Plastics

Also at 2 pm EST on the 14th, ASME will have its first webinar of the week, “Selecting 3D Printing Production and High-Performance Plastics.” Applications and print process expert, Marty Johnson, Technical Fellow and Director of Print Process at 3D Systems, will explain how to evaluate AM materials to make sure that your choice best meets the requirements of your specific application. There are over 100 production and high-performance plastics you can use for AM, which can be overwhelming, and Johnson will discuss how to use data sheets to determine the best material, talk about production performance properties for AM materials, and more.

“Marty will explain how to assess the performance and suitability of various materials based on properties like flexural modulus, heat deflection temperature, and elongation at break, as well as longevity and chemical resistance considerations. With the understanding that having data and a base of comparison is critical to informing engineering decisions, Marty will review how ASTM, ISO, USCAR2, and other industry standards apply to AM production and high-performance materials, what data is available, and where to find it.”

June 15: America Makes Membership Workshop

On Wednesday, June 15th, America Makes is holding a Membership Model Virtual Workshop at 11 am EST. Registration is free, but required to attend, and the virtual workshop is only for members of America Makes, and will help define what it means to be a member and improving the value of the organization’s membership model. The agenda will include creating a vision board of what a new membership model might look like, and attendees will also work on concept models. All the results will be taken into consideration for the next iteration of the America Makes membership model.

“During this workshop, members will engage with activities that will drive the vision for our membership model.

“Participants will be focused on questions regarding membership benefits, the annual cost and terms, and the overall value of America Makes membership.”

Members can register for the workshop here.

June 15: Semiconductor Lithography Equipment

Together, 3D Systems and nTopology are holding a webinar at 11:30 am EST on the 15th about how to “Increase throughput and quality of semiconductor lithography equipment with optimized wafer table thermal management.” Scott Green, Principal Solutions Leader at 3D Systems, will be the speaker for this webinar, and topics will include the benefits of 3D printing to advance the performance of semiconductor capital equipment, how nTopology’s software can help optimize wafer table design and the benefits, how to integrate AM, and more.

During the lithography process, keeping temperatures within milliKelvin (mK) ranges is critical as any system disturbance has an impact at the nanometer scale. Through design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) techniques such as topology optimization software, it is possible to enhance cooling channels and surface patterns, thus dramatically improving surface temperatures and thermal gradients while reducing time constants. With unique designs attainable only with additive manufacturing, it is possible to efficiently dissipate heat, enhance system throughput and accuracy, and improve overall performance.”

June 15: ASME on Efficient, Flexible Design Optimization

ASME’s second webinar of the week will be held at 2 pm EST on the 15th, about “Efficient and Flexible Methods for Design Optimization.” This Mechanical Engineering webinar will explore optimization possibilities enabled with COMSOL Multiphysics software. The presenter will be Kristian Ejlebjærg Jensen, COMSOL’s Technology Manager – Optimization, who will discuss efficient and flexible optimization methods in the context of heat transfer, acoustics, structural mechanics, and electromagnetics.

“Simulation and optimization have long been used to develop better products and reduce time to market. These tools provide the foundation for a systematic approach to simulation-led design. Heuristics and application-specific know-how can be formalized and reformulated in objective terms that are stabilized over time.”

You can register for the webinar here.

June 16: Form 3+ Demonstration

Formlabs is hosting a brief, live demonstration of its Form 3+ workflow at 11 am EST on Thursday, June 16th. During the webinar, Joshua Niman, Sales Engineer Lead at Formlabs, will demo the printer setup, available materials, how to remove IPA in the Form Wash, and how to cure the part. Afterwards, he’ll stick around to answer questions about the hardware, materials, and the rest of the Form 3+ ecosystem. Attendees will learn how to prime a Form 3+ for printing, remove parts from the BP2, post-processing, and more.

“Join us for a live overview of the Form 3+, launched earlier this year. We’ll highlight the printer, as well as the Build Platform 2, the Form Wash, and Form Cure.”

You can register for the demo here.

June 16: Calibrating Advanced Material Models with Dassault

Later that day, at 4 pm EST on the 16th, Dassault Systèmes is holding a webinar on “Calibration of Advanced Material Models.” Deepak Patel, SIMULIA Industry Process Consultant, will present about calibrating advanced material models, from both physical and virtual test data, and how they enable complex, physics-based and high fidelity simulations. Highlights of the webinar will include FE-mode calibration, importing material test data and exporting materials for Abaqus simulation, calibrating advanced material models, and more.

“Calibration of advanced material models, from physical or virtual test data, enable complex, physics-based simulations. However, a robust and high fidelity material calibration tool will inevitably increase the fidelity of simulations.”

You can register for the webinar here.

June 17: ASTM Understanding Value of DfAM

Finally, on Friday, July 17th, ASTM is holding a webinar on “Design for AM: Understanding Value” at 10 am EST. Olaf Diegel, an additive manufacturing educator and practitioner, is a professor of AM at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, and will present this webinar. Attendees will learn which AM production factors most affect costs, how to use design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) to add functional value and reduce costs, and more.

“AM is one of the most expensive manufacturing methods in the known universe. Therefore, for it to be usable, it must add enough ‘value’ to overcome those high costs. This talk will focus on the main factors that affect AM cost and how these can be transformed into value adding features. It will demonstrate how a basic understanding of the economics of AM can help companies to design parts in a way that truly take advantage of what AM can offer while, at the time, adding enough value to make AM production not only possible, but desirable. It will show real world examples showing how good design for AM practices can transform products that would, otherwise, be uneconomical to produce using AM.”
