3D Printing Webinar and Event Summary: Aug 8, 2021 – 3DPrint.com

It’s another quieter week of webinars and in-person events, but there’s still a lot to learn, from increasing your production performance with SLS 3D printing to working with the Ti6242 titanium alloy, to predicting the performance of 3D printed parts and more. Read on for all the details!

SLS 3D printing with Shapeways and EOS

To kick off, Shapeways and EOS will host a webinar on Tuesday, August 10th at 10:30 am EST, entitled “Increasing Your Production Power: Additive Manufacturing with EOS and Shapeways”. Steve Weart, Director of Customer Success at Shapeways, and Dr. Cary Baur, Manager of Polymer Material R&D and Applications Development at EOS North America, discuss how to design for SLS 3D printing and what materials, surfaces and colors are available. how the versatility of nylon 12 helps with multiple applications and more.

“Shapeways and EOS present an informative webinar to increase manufacturing capacities with SLS technology and materials that are versatile enough for high-quality quick prototypes or long-lasting end products.”

The AM General Personnel Certificate Course from ASTM

This week, ASTM International’s AM Competence Center (AMCOE) is kicking off the first of eight modules in its virtual certificate course for general additive manufacturing personnel, which runs through September 2nd. Instructed by 18 experts from the AM industry, the course includes two modules per week that cover all general concepts of the AM process chain and is recommended for engineers, managers, technicians and others from academia, government and industry with any level of AM experience. The first course, “AM Process Overview and Technology”, will take place on Tuesday, 10th, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm EST, while the second, “Design and Simulation” will take place simultaneously on Wednesday, August 11th .

“This course provides participants with core technical knowledge related to common AM practices and enables them to acquire a generic AM certificate, which serves as the basis and prerequisite for the acquisition of future specialized role-based AM certificates through the ASTM AM CoE. After completing the course, the participants will take a multiple-choice exam. “

3DEO at MD&M West in California

Metal AM startup 3DEO will be attending MD&M West at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, which shares the exhibition space with the WestPack, ATX West, D&M West and Plastec West events, from the 10th to the 12th of this week . The event invites medical technology engineers, business leaders, disruptive companies, decision makers and innovative thinkers to discuss groundbreaking medical devices. There, 3DEO will discuss its work to bring ten products to market with Blackland Razors for which the company has actually won an award.

“3DEO is an industrial technology company specifically designed to help customers like Blackland Razor unleash untapped creativity. Traditionally, the pace of inventing or introducing new products has been quite slow. This is not because engineers are slow, but because the tools engineers need to produce are slowing down or hindering the entire innovation process. We have brought 3D metal printing into series production and enable our customers to do things that they could never do before. “

You can register for this personal event here. 3DEO will be at booth 1073.

GE additive on titanium-Ti-6242 alloy

GE Additive’s latest webinar entitled “Titanium Ti-6242 – A High Performance Material For High Temperature Applications “will take place on Wednesday the 11th at 10 am EST. This powder goes well with aerospace applications such as afterburner structures and turbine components, and Patrick Krappmann, Lead Engineer at GE Additive – Customer Project & Process Engineering, will explain the basic steps taken to develop the Ti-6242 parameter for GE Additive’s Concept Laser M2 Series 5 DMLM machine and how, Due to the relatively low density of the material, the powder can help reduce the weight of 3D printed components while also meeting temperature-dependent requirements.

“The main difference between Ti-6242 and other titanium alloys is the excellent mechanical properties that can be achieved with the material, especially at elevated temperatures and in terms of creep resistance. The near-alpha titanium alloy has high mechanical strength, high temperature stability and creep resistance up to temperatures of 500-550 ° C. Other common titanium alloys, such as the most widely used Ti-6Al-4V, typically have working temperatures of up to 350 ° C. “

EWI to predict the performance of 3D printed parts

EWI is hosting a free webinar entitled “Predicting AM Part Performance” on the 11th from 1pm to 2pm EST. Three EWI employees will discuss the company’s new performance prediction model, which takes both construction and replica processing into account and has been successfully applied to titanium alloys. You can download a paper describing this project here if you want to learn more.

“Join this one hour webinar to learn more about the new performance prediction tool for AM manufactured parts developed by EWI. The webinar will be moderated by Alex Kitt, Luke Mohr and Arushi Dhakad. “

NAMIC & SPETA: 3D printing for innovative precision forms

A webinar entitled “Innovating Precision Molding Technology Through 3D Printing”, jointly organized by the Singapore Precision Engineering & Technology Association (SPETA) and the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC), will take place on Thursday the 12th at 3pm SGT. Together with expert speakers from GF Machining Solutions, Sunningdale Tech Ltd. and Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center, NAMIC and SPETA will explore the use of AM to increase manufacturing productivity and improve precision engineering, technology will be integrated and optimized for tooling and tooling applications and more.

“Precision Engineering (PE) is the backbone of many industries, especially in the semiconductor, marine & offshore, aerospace and medical technology industries in Singapore. PE technology enables the design and customization of parts made to exact specifications and in pursuit of higher value activities the PE industry must innovate with new skills and digital solutions. “

ASTM on wire-based DED printing, part 1

In its third webinar of the week, ASTM will host the first of two parts on wire-based DED, “Processes Applications, and Systems,” on the 12th from 10 am to 11 am EST. Professor Stewart Williams, Director of the Welding Engineering and Laser Processing Center at Cranfield University, will teach attendees about the wire-based DED process and its connection with the broader manufacturing industry, the different metals used in the technology, and the different programs that available within the university to gain or improve AM specialization, and more.

“In this webinar, an introduction to wire-based DED is presented, which enables the audience to understand the process in more detail technically. This is followed by a run through of the various research topics and the activities that support them. Several applications and case studies of wire-based DED will then be presented to allow the audience to put the concepts into a broader perspective. Finally, the first session in this series would look at the various aspects of the commercialization of this technology. “

You can register for the webinar here. Part 1 is $ 49, or you can pay $ 75 to bundle Part 2.


The final webinar of the week will be hosted by TriMech on Friday, August 13th at 10am EST entitled “SOLIDWORKS PDM: ‘What Does This Button Do?’”. and highlight performance tips to help users navigate tree copy, BOM compare, and purpose of use features. Participants will learn how to customize column views, preview configurations, and more.

“SOLIDWORKS PDM allows you to arrange and edit the user interface with custom settings to improve the quality and productivity of your assembly structure. Organizing columns and understanding keyboard shortcuts has never been easier. Are you ready to learn more about the UI highlights and buttons included in the latest version? “
