March 21: Additive Manufacturing Workshop
For an exclusive opportunity to learn how you can easily integrate 3D printers into your business for immediate benefits, join the Additive Manufacturing Workshop at the CREAT3D offices in Winnersh, roughly 6.4 km southeast of central Reading in the UK. The workshop will be held from 10 am to 1 pm GMT on Tuesday the 21st, and will offer full access to flagship printers, and application engineers, from both Markforged and Formlabs, such as the Markforged FX20 industrial composite fiber and high-temperature 3D printer and the Formlabs Fuse 1+30W 3D printer. Plus, attendees will get a swag bag of additive goodies as well.
“Additive Manufacturing (AM) is firmly embedded into Engineering and Manufacturing firms in the UK as the engineer’s problem solving tool, for applications from manufacturing aids to new product development and end-use components.”
You can reserve your place for the workshop here.
March 21: Getting Started with SOLIDWORKS
At 10 am EST on the 21st, TriMech will hold a webinar about “Getting Started With 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS.” Matt Kokoski, TriMech Technical Manager – 3DEXPERIENCE, will explain the benefits of cloud-connected 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS, as well as the basics of part modeling by releasing a print for production while connected to cloud storage for easy collaboration with the designers. Attendees will also learn how to assign licenses in the platform, create parts, assemblies, and drawings in SOLIDWORKS, expandability beyond SOLIDWORKS, and more.
“The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides a wide product portfolio, but it can all start by connecting SOLIDWORKS design to the cloud.
“In this webinar, we will look at where we can expand once our data is in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.”

March 22: Open Material License for Stratasys
In its second webinar of the week, TriMech will present on the “Open Material License and Validated Materials on the Stratasys Fortus 450mc Printer” at 10 am EST on Wednesday, March 22nd. Stratasys FDM printers are accurate, durable, and consistent, but adding new materials to its lineup has always come at a slow pace. TriMech’s Solutions Consultant – Additive, Rich Annino, will discuss open material licenses and validated materials that are currently available to use with the company’s Fortus 450mc 3D printers. Attendees will also learn what the new OpenAM Program is, and what it can do for them.
“Stratasys chooses not to rush the release of new materials, and instead waits until they are perfectly tuned for running on the intended platform.
“Now, with the Validated Material lineup, we are poised to see an explosion in material offerings from Stratasys FDM, and the new OpenAM Program that was released on the Fortus 450mc. It enables users to tweak and tune ANY material that they would like to run on their system!”

March 22: Generative Design Exploration with America Makes
America Makes is holding a webinar about how to “Enhance Your Generative Design Exploration” at 2 pm EST on the 22nd. Tony Gray with software vendor Altair will explain the workflow of using the company’s Altair Inspire to design a manufacturable part. The software offers geometry parameterization for design exploration, topology optimization based on the manufacturing method, geometry realization, and manufacturing simulation. Additionally, Altair is offering members of America Makes the chance to get a two-month free trial license of both Altair Inspire and Inspire Print3D, with interactive training.
“With many industries currently exploring the design freedom allowed by various additive and hybrid manufacturing technologies, Generative Design and Design Exploration have become more widely used to reduce weight, cost, and time to market, while maintaining or improving performance and sustainability.”

March 23: Engineering Solutions Live
On Thursday, March 23rd, Engineered Solutions Live will be held at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon. It combines four events—Engineering Materials Live, the FAST Show, Make Measurement Matter, and PCB Design & Manufacturing Live—into one forum for design, engineering, and manufacturing professionals. The exhibition and seminar sessions are free to attend, and there will be a few exhibitors from the AM industry, including HP 3D Printing and Mark3D. Some sessions will also discuss AM industry-related topics, such as PCBS and improving adhesion.
“By attending Engineering Solutions Live you will have access to a number of technical workshop sessions led by industry thought leaders, the chance to network with your industry peers, and what’s more, joining us will be over 100 other market-leading engineering and manufacturing suppliers for you to visit. So, don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to keep up to date with industry trends and thrive in the years ahead.”

March 23: 3D Printing for Orthopedic Care
The latest panel discussion by 3DHEALS will take place at 11 am EST on the 23rd, and focus on “3D Printing for Orthopedic Care.” Moderated by 3DHEALS Founder and CEO Dr. Jenny Chen, the speakers will be Professor Frédéric Schuind, Founder and CEO of medtech company Spirecut; Dr. Brett Carey, CEO of Kalo Multispeciality Group; Ryan Harold, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with the Illinois Bone & Joint Institute; Ruben Wauthle, CEO and Co-Founder of Amnovis; and David Jansen, CEO of SAIL Fusion. The orthopedic care field is one of the earliest and biggest adopters of 3D printing, so it’s sure to be an interesting discussion.
“3D-printed orthopedic solutions can be used to create customized implants and prostheses that are a perfect fit for each patient. This not only results in a better fit and more comfortable device, but it also leads to potentially faster healing times and longer durability. 3D printing presurgical planning either using anatomical models or surgical guides is now routinely used in the operating room. In this upcoming webinar, we primarily focus on orthopedic surgical care from several different perspectives. In a future webinar in April, we will focus on 3D printing or bioprinting bone tissue using tissue engineering techniques. The commercialization and regulatory pathways for 3D-printed orthopedic implants are approaching maturity, with industry leaders like Stryker, JNJ, and more continuing to expand their 3D printing product and service portfolio. Naturally, this is an active area of innovations and entrepreneurial activities, and investments, since short-term favorable exit is more likely compared to other applications. Join us for an intimate and engaging conversation with a world-class panel with diverse backgrounds and knowledge bases in this energetic 90 minutes virtual event on our Event Hub.”
