First up, the Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) 2022 is coming to the Tampa Convention Center in Florida from Monday through Thursday, December 5th through the 8th. This annual forum, sponsored by the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel (JDMTP), is put on by ARCTOS and Army ManTech to leverage and enhance the efforts of engineers, scientists, policy makers, managers, and technology leaders across the defense manufacturing industrial base. Attendance is typically over 1,000, and several additive manufacturing industry companies will be there, including America Makes, 3D Systems, and SPEE3D.

“Leaders and manufacturing subject matter experts from government, industry, and academia exchange information and perspectives on defense manufacturing policies, strategic direction, best practices, funding opportunities, and the latest manufacturing innovations that will benefit our warfighters.”

Online registration for DMC 2022 is closed, but you can still register for the event onsite.

December 5 – 9: 3D Printing News Unpeeled

Our Executive Editor Joris Peels, who’s also the Vice President of Consulting at SmarTech Analysis, launched a daily news livestream called 3D Printing News Unpeeled. Each weekday at 9:30 am EST, Peels gets on LinkedIn Live and tells us, in 20 minutes or less, what he considers to be the top news stories from the 3D printing industry that day, and why they’re important. Some of the stories in his roundup are ones we’ve covered at 3DPrint.com, and some are not, but they are all equally interesting and impactful.

The next 3D Printing News Unpeeled livestream will be this Monday, December 5th, at 9:30 am EST, and will continue the rest of the week at the same time. You don’t want to miss it!

December 6 – 7: 8th International Symposium on Virtual Twin of Human & Living Heart

The Living Heart Project by Dassault Systèmes has been going on since 2014, uniting top cardiovascular researchers, educators, medical device developers, regulatory agencies, and practicing cardiologists in a mission to develop and validate personalized digital human heart models. Each year since then, this multidisciplinary community comes together to share their progress at the International Symposium on Virtual Twin of Human & Living Heart, and the 8th of these symposiums will be held this week in Brooklyn, New York from December 6-7. Attendees will hear about the latest research breakthroughs, applications, industry adoption stories, and more. Plus, the FDA will discuss the use of simulation for in silico clinical trials, and members of the Living Heart, Brain, Lung, and Liver projects will share best practices.

“Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from world experts, network with peers across many disciplines and do deep dives with technical experts. A live streaming option of morning plenary sessions will be live-streamed for those unable to travel, followed by afternoon on-site workshops, networking sessions, 3DEXPERIENCE Demo Center & COE Lab tours.”

December 6: Markforged’s Simulation in Eiger

At 10 am EST on Tuesday, December 6th, Markforged will hold a webinar about its Simulation solution, which was recently launched as a free trial for anyone with Eiger, the company’s cloud-based digital software solution for scaling additive manufacturing operations. Rick Dalgarno, Principal Application Engineer for Markforged, will discuss Simulation software and how it can be used to improve the product design process and deliver trusted parts faster. Attendees will also learn how Simulation can reduce the cost of 3D printed parts by optimizing how much material and continuous fiber reinforcement is needed.

“In this webinar, we’ll provide an overview of Simulation and show you how to use it to validate part strength and stiffness with virtual testing instead of through guesswork and wasteful print-break-testing or relying on structural experts running complex analysis software.”

December 7: SOLIDWORKS 2023 for 3D Printing

TriMech is holding a webinar at 10 am EST on Wednesday the 7th called “Get to Know SOLIDWORKS 2023 for 3D Printing.” Chi Wang, TriMech Process and Training Consultant, will review the tools for pre- and post-processing, what file formats SOLIDWORKS can open and save, the tools inside SOLIDWORKS to check the print, and more.

“3D printing is no longer just for prototyping. It has evolved over the years into manufacturing machines capable of tooling and end-use parts for nearly every industry. With the wide adoption of 3D printing, understanding the tools available is the key to success.”

December 7: On the Horizon for 3D Post-Processing

At 11 am EST on the 7th, PostProcess Technologies will unveil the results of its 2022 Additive Post-Processing Trends Survey, and discuss “What’s on the Horizon for 3D Post-Processing: Insights from Market Trends Survey 2022.” Attendees will learn what the industry trends are year to year, what end-use markets are the most challenged by post-processing to meet their AM goals, which technology users are reporting the highest post-processing expenditures and toughest labor challenges, and more. The speakers will be Mel Hanson, Chief Marketing Officer, and Dean VonBank, VP Technical Services & Customer Success.

“Get one-of-a-kind insights from the industry’s only survey dedicated to the critical 3D post-processing step. We’ll discuss unique findings from the report and include new discoveries only revealed during the live webinar. Engage virtually with live polling and a Q&A session with the world’s leading automated post-processing experts.”

December 7: 3D Systems on AM in Commercial Vehicles

The final December 7th webinar, at 1 pm EST, delivered by 3D Systems and sponsored by ASME, asks an important question: “Is there really a use for AM in commercial vehicles?” While AM solutions can keep existing fleets in service and counter supply chain delays, and help with customized product configurations, many companies and individuals in the commercial and public transportation industry have experienced a gap between their AM expectations and reality. Jaime Garcia, 3D Systems’ Solutions Manager for Commercial and Public Transportation, has product design engineering experience for both off-road and rail vehicle OEMs, and will discuss practical AM applications for trucks, railways, and buses, such as pneumatic manifolds, as well as the opportunities for and limitations of the technology pertaining to commercial vehicles.

“OEMs in the commercial and public transportation industries are focused on innovation paired with customized product configurations, while service teams are always looking for effective and efficient ways to keep existing fleets in service while countering labor shortages and supply chain delays. Additive manufacturing solutions and services can help achieve these goals by offering ways to accelerate sustainability initiatives, differentiate through customization, establish new benchmarks for asset availability, and be more adaptable to new regulations.”
