July 14: 3D Systems on 3D Printing & Generative Design

Get ready, because Thursday, July 14th, will be a busy day this week! Things kick off at 5 am EST with a webinar by 3D Systems on “Generative Design + AM: Building Lightweight Structures for NASA EXCITE.” Attendees will hear about the application of generative design and 3D printing within NASA’s EXCITE mission, including the design, analysis, manufacturing, and testing of prototype hardware. Topics will include comparison data between human and AI design, how combining technologies reduced development time from months to days and enabled major mass reduction, future directions to develop efficient, bone-like structures for spacecraft, and more.

“Digital engineering technologies are transforming classical engineering tasks such as design, analysis, and fabrication for space-flight structures. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud computing, generative design enables a paradigm shift in the design process, allowing the engineer to define design objectives and requirements while AI explores the design space to generate optimized designs that meet those parameters.

“Digital manufacturing enables these complex and lightweight designs to be robotically manufactured directly from 3D models. This includes both additive manufacturing, such as laser powder bed fusion (LPBF), and subtractive techniques such as automated milling.”

You can register for the webinar here.

July 14: ASTM Presents Overview of Cold Spray Technology

At 10 am EST on the 14th, ASTM International’s AM Center of Excellence (AMCOE) will present a webinar, “Overview of Cold Spray as a Manufacturing Process,” taught by Dan Braley, a Boeing Associate Technical Fellow and the Boeing Global Services Additive Manufacturing Technical Focal & Initiatives Leader. He will teach attendees about the cold spray manufacturing process and how it’s being utilized today, key use cases for the technology for producing and coating parts, potential future uses, and more.

“Cold spray is a manufacturing process whereby metal particles are shot at high pressure through a converging-diverging nozzle in a heated gas stream toward a substrate surface at supersonic speeds. This very high speed gas becomes a carrier of the metallic particles that imbed themselves upon impact to a substrate, forming a strong bond with that surface. This process has emerged as a traditional manufacturing alternative, providing an Additive Manufacturing direct part production, repair, and coating process opportunity.”

You can register for the webinar for $49 here.

July 14: Authentise & nebumind on Process Monitoring

Also at 10 am EST on the 14th, Authentise and nebumind are co-hosting a webinar on “The Future of Process Monitoring.” Nick Parry with Authentise and Christoph Braun with nebumind will discuss the benefits of AM process monitoring, and how the two companies are combining their platforms for this purpose.

“From AM Technician to AM Expert, see how Authentise and nebumind are combining their platforms to enable technicians to act quickly and reduce production costs through to helping advanced Additive Manufacturing engineers improve the quality of future print jobs.”

July 14: 3DHEALS on 3D Printing for Veterinary Medicine

3DHEALS will present a webinar about “3D Printing for Veterinary Medicine” at 11 am EST on the 14th. According to data from the AVMA, there was a 50% increase in new pets per week from March to August in 2020, which shows that just like with people, the pet market has ups and downs in its supply chain. An international group of speakers who take care of animals every day using 3D printing and related technologies will discuss their patients, how they provide more efficient care for them using today’s modern manufacturing processes, and how 3D printing can help ensure a more robust supply chain. Moderated by 3DHEALS Detroit Community Manager Richard Doerer, the founder of Modl3D, LLC, the webinar welcomes speakers Alexander Then, a veterinary science 3D printing specialist with NordicVet3D; Andrew Allshorn, the owner of 3D-SQUARED; veterinary surgeon Dr. Johnny Uday; and Dr. Kalman Czeibert, a biomedical engineer at at LimesVet.

“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.”

July 14: Velo3D on Large-Format Metal 3D Printers

If you’re interested in metal LPBF 3D printing, you’ll want to tune in to our webinar with Velo3D at 2 pm EST on the 14th, “How Large Format Metal AM Printers are Revolutionizing Mission-Critical Manufacturing.” Attendees will hear about Velo3D’s Sapphire XC 1MZ, the largest metal system available from a top LPBF supplier, which has the capability to print meter-tall parts with standardized, repeatable material properties—perfect for aerospace, defense, and energy applications. Our own Joris Peels will moderate this interactive session, welcoming Velo3D’s Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development, Dr. Zach Murphree, and Director of Technical Sales, Gene Miller, to discuss the benefits and applications of its newest large-scale metal 3D printer, which features 8 1-kilowatt lasers, a faster non-contact recoater, and more.

“The race to space is taking off across the globe. As these companies look to meet their manufacturing milestones, they are increasingly looking to metal 3d printing. However, until recently, the options for large format printing have been limited to lower precision technologies like DED. For detailed and complex turbomachinery and regeneratively cooled combustion chambers, engineers require higher precision. Enter the age of large format Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF).”

July 14: HP on 3D Printed Medical Device Regulations

HP will sponsor a webinar at 2 pm EST on the 14th about “What’s Next: Approaching the Regulations Process Around 3D Printed Medical Devices.” Attendees will learn the specific requirements of their medical applications, how medical regulations view prototypes and production parts made with 3D printing, the meaning of biocompatibility and how to plan for testing, and more regarding the regulations of medical devices using end-use 3D printing. The speakers will be Michael Drues, PhD, President of education, training, and consulting company Vascular Sciences; HP Application Engineer David Johnson; and Tom Salemi, Editorial Director of DeviceTalks.

“Michael has worked on the FDA and OEM side of medical device regulation and has helped many customers navigate the growing 3D printing space for end-use applications. He will take us through FDA expectations towards manufacturers, how to navigate the process, and removing the guesswork and unknowns so you can get started and benefit from 3D printing quicker.”
