Session 1: An Introduction to Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal Additive Manufacturing is poised to transform the manufacturing industry by making it easier than ever to produce metal parts and pieces. In this opening session of the course, you’ll be taken through an overview of the process from start to finish, including its benefits, uses, and diverse applications.



Speaker: David Dietrich, Ph.D., Additive Mfg Design Engineering Fellow, Honeywell – Aerospace

Session 2: Key Design and Materials Considerations for 3D Printing in Metal

Standard 3D printing and 3D printing in metal may stem from the same concept, but there are brand new considerations at play when materials change. In this practical and information-packed session, you’ll learn about current technologies and materials at use in 3D printing in metal; processing factors that impact resolution, potential flaws, and porosity; and methods to achieve desired surface finish, durability, and reliability in service environments from an industry expert. Get in all your questions in the Q+A that follows.
