September 29: AMNOW Metal Challenge Webinar

America Makes will hold an AMNOW Metal Challenge Webinar on the 29th at 2 pm EST. The challenge objective was to evaluate the repeatability and predictability of laser powder bed fusion technology, and maximize insights from the printing and post-processing data. Then, they had to apply AI and data analytics to the data set, including 39 316L builds across four machine models, six machines, three suppliers, two heat treatments, and more than 800 test coupons.

Phase 1 focused on organizing, characterizing, and analyzing the data to create algorithms for predicting important results, and then comparing the predictions to the actual results. Then, participants had to list opportunities for improvement for the final two builds at one of three suppliers. Phase 2 was the collaborations between Applied Optimization/Innovative3D Manufacturing, Waterloo University/Penn United Technologies, and The Roux Institute at Northeastern University/ATI to validate the predictions, or improve the outcomes. Addiguru also organized all of the 316L data into a prototype schema and applied basic analyses. During this webinar, the project participants will each have 15 minutes to present on their approach, tools, challenges, results, and recommendations.

You can register for the webinar here.

September 29: Next Gen AM Design Methods

Also on Thursday the 29th at 2 pm, HP is holding a Design World webinar on “Leveraging Next Gen Design Methods To Unlock The Full Potential Of Additive Manufacturing.” Attendees will learn how to use computational design tools to solve for design complexity in mass customization, while also respecting industrial process restraints, and hear about innovative case studies, from speakers Nathan Shirley, Lead Computational & Industrial Designer for HP 3D Printing; Wes Kramer, Application Engineer for HP 3D Printing; and Leslie Langnau, Editor, Design World.

“There is well-established industry expertise around designing for outdated machining processes, but advances in additive manufacturing technologies have introduced new challenges in design. Our ability to print complex geometries has outpaced our ability to design them. Using computational methods instead of traditional methods has allowed us to meet the specific requirements of applications in a variety of industries.”
