August 16: Materialise Mimics Innovation Course in Australia

Materialise is holding an Advanced Mimics Innovation Course for the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia at Griffith University, Southport on Tuesday, August 16th. Attendees will learn about what’s new in Mimics Innovation Suite 25, designing for patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) for orthopedic applications, how to import DICOM data from CT and CRI and convert the images into a 3D model, an instruction to Mimics Viewer and Virtual Reality, and more. The trainer will be Sasha Selvanayagam, Materialise Application Engineer – Medical for Australia and New Zealand.

“Medical image data serves as a powerful basis for engineers and researchers striving for solutions that will lead to safer and more predictable patient outcomes.

“The Mimics Innovation Suite was designed to make using that medical image data for all your engineering on anatomy purposes as easy and efficient as possible. During the Mimics Innovation Course you will experience all of the suites latest enhancements, features and benefits and learn how you too can benefit from such a versatile toolbox.”

August 17: Markforged’s Continuous Fiber Reinforcement

At 10 am EST on Wednesday the 17th, Markforged is holding a webinar on “Utilizing Continuous Fiber Reinforcement,” and attendees will learn how continuous fibers make it possible for the company’s composite 3D printers to fabricate metal-strength parts. Hosted by Cat Pomorski, Markforged Customer Success Engineer, the webinar will teach attendees what each type of continuous fiber is used for, how to path fiber in Eiger, where to place CFR for the best mechanical properties, and more.

“Markforged Continuous Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) can be incredibly strong, but how do we use it to make a part as strong as aluminum, without overengineering your part?”

August 18: Nexa3D’s Live XiP Demonstration

According to Nexa3D, its XiP resin system is the world’s first ultrafast desktop 3D printer, with its proprietary LSPc industrial light engine speeding up the already fast mSLA technology. If you need some convincing, you’ll want to join the company’s live Zoom event, “CAD to Part with XiP in 30 minutes or less,” at 1 pm EST this Thursday, August 18th. Instructor Rob Wiggins, Nexa3D’s Head of Creative Services, will virtually welcome attendees into his studio for a live demonstration of the XiP, starting with bringing a CAD file into NexaX print preparation software, setting up the print job, and starting the print. While the part is printing, he’ll provide an overview of the XiP’s features, and then remove the build plate with the finished part.

“Sure, 3D printing overnight and coming in to find your completed print is fun but wouldn’t it be more fun if you could do that and multiple other projects all within one day?

“If that still sounds like hyperbole and marketing speak, well, you’ll just have to see it for yourself.”

You can register for the live demo here.

August 18: Modernizing Data Management with 3DEXPERIENCE

Also at 1 pm EST on the 18th, Dassault Systèmes is holding a 45-minute webinar about how to “Modernize Your Data Management Practices with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.” Steve Fick, Industry Process Consultant and Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert, will teach attendees how to move beyond Windows File folders, using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to modernize the product development process through flexibility, powerful tools for managing SOLIDWORKS data, and fast deployment through SaaS infrastructure.

“Getting a handle on your engineering design data and modernizing your product development process can feel overwhelming. You know the importance of managing file references, working on the right revisions, understanding the impact of design changes, and ensuring tight collaboration. But the thought of embarking on a lengthy implementation and securing IT infrastructure can be daunting, to say the least.”

August 18: Carbon Using AM to Take Ideas to Production

Finally, at 2 pm EST on Thursday, August 18th, the latest in the ASME webinar series will be on “How to Take an Idea to Production with Additive Manufacturing.” Jason Lopes, Technical Director at Carbon, pioneered the use of AM in Hollywood at Legacy Effects, working for A-list brands like Fox and giant blockbuster movies like Avatar and Iron Man. During this webinar, he’ll explain how supply chain issues make the use of additive manufacturing necessary and bring about transformative designs resulting in better products, as well as how traditional products are embracing newer technologies to produce innovative designs, and more. He’ll look at some real world parts and discuss how cool ideas can get from one part to production at scale through design and production expertise partnerships.

“Join Jason as he describes the process of taking an idea to production with additive manufacturing, and how additive manufacturing technology can support your company’s needs today and well into the future.”
