April 12: America Makes Builds Confidence with L-PBF AM

The final April 12th webinar, at 2 pm EST, is by America Makes, and will focus on “Building Confidence with Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) Additive Manufacturing.” The organization’s latest TRX webinar, presented by Dale Cillessen, R&D Mechanical Engineer at Sandia National Laboratories, and John Laureto, Business Manager at Renishaw, Inc., will focus on increasing the adoption of AM by building confidence in your quality management system. Topics will include L-PBF production confidence building via traditional manufacturing principals, qualification methodologies that enable manufacturing, and more.

“It is widely understood that the development of a quality management system (QMS) within the context of laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) is critical for utilization and adoption of metal additive manufacturing. Numerous standardization boards and committees are actively developing these standards, rules, and methodologies.”

April 13: Bioprinting Bones with 3DHEALS

Thursday, April 13th will also be a busy day, with the first offering presented by 3DHEALS at 11 am EST. “3D Printing and Bioprinting Bones” invites stakeholders from all different backgrounds to learn more about regenerating bone tissue through 3D printing and bioprinting, which can, respectively, create acellular scaffolds, and use bioinks containing living cells and growth factors to promote bone growth. Five industry experts will speak on the subject during the panel discussion, moderated by 3DHEALS Founder and CEO Dr. Jenny Chen.

“This technology has the potential to create exact replicas of damaged bone, which could then be implanted in the body to help regenerate lost tissue. The process begins with scanning the bone defect to create a 3D model of the desired bone structure. Then, biomaterials or bio-ink containing stem cells and growth factors are printed in the desired structure based on the 3D models. The scaffold acts as a supportive structure for the cells, which are then allowed to grow in the desired shape. Once the cells have grown and matured, they can then be implanted into the patient’s body. This technology has been successfully used to regenerate bone in animals and is now being tested in human clinical trials. Some of the forerunners in the field include Osteopore (Singapore), Ossiform (Denmark, previously known as Particle 3D), DimensionInx (U.S., Chicago), and Cerhum (Belgium).”

April 13: Roboze Bio-based PA for AM

Also at 11 am EST on the 13th, Roboze will hold a webinar about “Super polymers and composites in additive manufacturing: insights into Roboze Bio-based PA.” This material, which Roboze calls the “first high-performance bio-based FFF 3D printing material,” has the same performance and specification as regular PA, but with 60% lower Co2 emissions than the typical carbon fiber-reinforced petroleum-based PA, enabling manufacturing companies to contribute to a better future for our planet. Diego Boscolo, Roboze Application Engineer, will explain to attendees the main technical characteristics of Roboze Bio-based PA, along with its advantages and applications, and answer questions.

“Sustainability is the necessary prerequisite for lasting progress for people and the planet. Investing in the research and development of diversified solutions, that can satisfy the various stages of production of goods, is one of the strategic choices for obtaining answers and proposing corrective actions to current business methods and models.

“Roboze is convinced of this and we have decided to do so by investing in the research and development of alternative materials to petroleum-based super polymers, by favoring the use of bio-based reinforcing fibers and matrices.”

You can register for the webinar here. Capacity is limited to the first 500 livestream subscribers.

April 13: Formlabs’ TPU 90A Powder

In its second offering of the week, Formlabs will be “Introducing TPU 90A Powder for Flexible, Tough, and Skin-Safe SLS Parts” at 12 pm EST on Thursday the 13th. The high-performance elastomeric SLS 3D printing material is good for a number of applications, like consumer goods and prosthetics, thanks to its excellent toughness and durability, while softness and precision help achieve functionality and optimal performance. TPU 90A powder, with its 80% recyclability, also has superior tear strength and high elongation at break, which means it can print flexible, skin-safe end-use parts and prototypes, for lower costs, that hold up under everyday use. Webinar attendees will learn how to implement this material into your 3D printing workflow and maximize your ROI, as well as how to get the most out of TPU 90A.

“Leverage TPU 90A Powder’s exceptional strength and flexibility to produce fully functional, custom end-use parts in-house and streamline your manufacturing process.

“With TPU 90A Powder on the Fuse SLS 3D printing ecosystem, unlock complete design freedom, iterate faster, and bring your products to market faster with in-house TPU production.”

April 13: Navigating DFM & DfAM with Protolabs

Finally, Protolabs will be focused on “Navigating 3D Printing DFM and DfAM” in the week’s final webinar on Thursday, April 13th, at 3 pm EST. The company’s automated analysis highlights issues in your part design that can be adjusted to improve its manufacturability. In this webinar, Eric Utley, Technical Sales Engineer, Protolabs, will explain design for additive manufacturability (DfAM) feedback, and ways to use it to optimize part design.

“Our goal is to provide you with design advice that will optimize your 3D-printed part design. In the session we’ll cover common design mistakes and how to correct them, such as thin walls and small gaps. After we’ve completed our presentation, we’ll make sure to leave plenty of time for Q & A.”
