August 22: ASTM’s Virtual Certificate Course Ends

Starting on Monday the 22nd, ASTM international’s AM Center of Excellence (AMCOE) will complete its month-long virtual Additive Manufacturing General Personnel Certificate Course. The first two modules of the comprehensive course, designed and taught by 18 industry experts, covered AM Process Overview & Terminology and Design & Simulation, while the third and fourth modules focused on Feedstock and Metrology & Post-Processing, and the fifth and sixth modules were about AM Safety and Non-Destructive Inspection. The final two modules will be about Mechanical Testing, taught by Nima Shamsaei with Auburn University, and Rachael Andrulonis and Royal Lovingfoss from WSU-NIAR, and a two-part module on Qualification and Certification. The first part will be taught by the FDA’s Matthew Di Prima, David Hwang, Phillip Pontikos, Daniel Porter, and Anne Talley, and the second part by NASA’s Douglas Wells and Michael Gorelik with the FAA.

“This course will equip attendees with core technical knowledge related to common AM practices and will allow them to earn a General AM Certificate that will serve as the foundation and pre-requisite for earning future specialized role-based AM certificates through the ASTM AM CoE. Attendees will complete a multiple-choice exam upon course completion.”

August 24: Improving Process Parameter Optimization with ML

Also at 2 pm EST on the 24th, America Makes is holding a TRX webinar about “Improved Process Parameter Optimization using Machine Learning.” Presented by Senvol’s Zach Simkin and Tayelor McKay with Northrop Grumman, this will be a briefing on the technical results of a recently completed America Makes program that was focused on a demonstrating a machine learning (ML) approach to developing and optimizing AM process parameters. The two companies demonstrated that the ML-enabled approach was much more sophisticated and accurate than a traditional approach, and the presenters will explain to attendees how the approach was different from traditional ones, detail the program’s technical results, and explain the steps that users can take to quickly find optimal parameters while decreasing data generation time and costs.

“In the program, there were 219,856 different possible parameter combinations to choose from. The project team used a ML approach to optimally select which parameter sets to use to best achieve multiple different performance requirements.

“The project culminated in a validation build, where it was demonstrated that the ML-enabled approach successfully selected parameter sets that met all performance requirements, whereas the traditional approach led to the selection of parameter sets that failed to meet the performance requirements.”
