3D Printing News Unpeeled

Our Executive Editor Joris Peels, who’s also the Vice President of Consulting at Additive Manufacturing Research (AMR), offers a news livestream one to two times a week called 3D Printing News Unpeeled at 9:30 am EST. For each episode, 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 week, 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!

May 20-25: SPE’s Smart Material Selection Workshop

According to the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE), 45% of plastic product failures are due to incorrect material choices. To avoid the same fate, sign up for SPE’s 4-part “Fundamentals of Plastic Material Selection” workshop this week! From 11 am to 1 pm EST on May 20, 21, 22, and 24, this virtual workshop will help you master the art of plastic material selection so you can make the best choice for your project. You’ll also learn about alternatives that could improve the cost-effectiveness and performance of your products, and develop an understanding of plastic material behavior from molten resin to end-use part performance. The presenter will be Eric Larson, Owner and Founder of engineering consulting company Art of Mass Production.

“Using common language, we will translate general terms about a material’s characteristics – such as stiffness, strength, and toughness – into specific technical properties that are relevant – and quantifiable – to the intended application. We will review industry standard tests that are used to quantify material properties, and discuss how to interpret the data and understand the behavior of the material to assess its use in an intended application.”

You can register for the workshop here. Seats are limited, so don’t delay!

May 20: ASTM Professional Certificate Course in AM

ASTM International’s AM Center of Excellence (AMCOE) is holding its 9th Professional Certificate Course in Additive Manufacturing. This comprehensive offering, which ends on June 4th, consists of eight modules over a one-month period that cover the entire AM process chain, providing attendees with a good mix of live expert Q&A sessions and self-paced learning. Two modules will be covered each week, taught by experts from academia, industry, national labs, and regulatory bodies. The modules covered in Week 3, which starts May 20th, are Mechanical Testing and AM Safety; the live Q&A session with instructors will be held May 28th.

“This course will equip attendees with core technical knowledge related to common AM practices and will allow them to earn a Professional 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.”
