ASTM AM CoE General Personnel Certificate Course

ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Competence Center (AM CoE) continues its virtual training course this week. The course, which ends on April 15th, is taught in eight modules over four weeks and covers the general concepts of the entire AM process chain. The previous two modules focused on raw materials, metrology, and post-processing, while this week’s two modules focused on testing and safety. The “mechanical tests” will take place on Tuesday, April 6th, 9 am-1pm EST, while the “AM Safety” on Thursday, April 8th, will be a bit shorter, starting at 9am and ending at 11am.

“This course provides participants with basic technical knowledge related to common AM practices and enables them to earn a generic AM certificate, which will serve as the foundation and prerequisite for acquiring future specialized role-based AM certificates through the ASTM AM CoE. After completing the course, participants take a multiple-choice exam. “

Cellink: Oncological drug screening applications with bioprinters

Also on the 6th at 10:30 am EST, Cellink will host a webinar on Oncology Drug Screening Applications using the I.DOT and BIO X bioprinters for live tissue testing. The webinar will be held in English by Dr. Jared Barrot, an assistant professor at Idaho State University, whose group has worked to improve treatment options for patients with sarcoma, a type of cancer, will moderate. Dr. Barrot uses Cellink’s BIO X and I.DOT to optimize the conditions for ex vivo functional drug testing using patient-derived materials.

“Learn more about developing a throughput protocol to test a range of cancer therapies on a patient’s tumor so that clinical decisions can be made about the therapies to be delivered to that patient. Top therapeutic targets can be further validated in a 3D printed tumor microenvironment in order to consolidate the translational success of the identified drugs. “

GE Additive discusses Binder Jetting RENÉ 108 superalloy

GE Additive’s latest Wednesday webinar series, “Binder Jetting Hard-to-Weld, Nickel-Based Super Alloy RENÉ 108,” will be held on April 7th at 10:00 am EST. The webinar is based on a joint study by GE Additive, GE Power and Polytechnique Montréal. Participants will learn the effects of the green, brown, and sintered states of a part 3D printed with binder jetting using the nickel-based superalloy RENÉ 108 Some of the pros and cons of using binder jet 3D printing with this material as well as its mechanical properties, deformations and Ni alloy applications will be discussed by the three speakers: Arunkumar Natarajan, GE Additive Principal Engineer; Étienne Martin, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique; and Srikanth Kottilingam, a GE Gas Power Consulting Engineer.

“The ultra-high strength of nickel-based superalloys with low ductility comes at the cost of high crack susceptibility and high residual stress when processed with conventional powder bed melting technologies. Binder Jet Additive Manufacturing is an interesting alternative to other additive manufacturing (AM) modalities as no melting is required to fuse powder material, but powder selectively adheres with a binder. While there have been several studies of the use of melting and other solidification-based AM technologies for nickel-based superalloys, limited literature is available on the use of Binder Jet for these materials. “

TriMech explains the SOLIDWORKS PDM search functionality

On Thursday, April 8th at 10 am EST, TriMech will host a webinar on PDM Advanced Search Functionality in SOLIDWORKS. CAD files are made up of metadata, and the file name is only part of it. During the webinar, Dave Ramsey, TriMech Application Engineer, explains the various advanced ways that SOLIDWORKS PDM can help you locate this important file. It explains how to search for files based on “material”, “description”, “purpose” and the status of the file workflow, and shows participants how to add search criteria to favorite searches, favorite files and folder cards for reuse searches and more.

“We were all there … It is the time of the crisis and you have to complete the last ECR. You open the directory you think the CAD file is in, but then what? You search for the file you need by name and you will likely find 8-10 files with the same or a similar name, or you spend time searching by name only to find out later that it was actually saved under the part number. When developing a product, it is important that you find the right model when you need it. “
