Featured Presentations at AMUG
Software as an Enabler for Optimized Additive Manufacturing Workflows
Monday, March 23rd at 3:00 pm Williford C, 3rd Floor
Software is the enabler of additive manufacturing processes. As companies accelerate adoption of additive technologies alongside subtractive to optimize their workflows, software plays an increasingly important role to enable streamlined processes. In this presentation, Ms. Krishnan will discuss the role that software plays in manufacturing workflows – acting as the digital thread that connects each function to add control, visibility and traceability. She will address how software supports hybrid additive and subtractive manufacturing processes, helping manufacturers maintain competitive advantage with a future-ready environment that delivers today what customers will be demanding tomorrow. Ms. Krishnan will cite examples of how manufacturers employ software to create an end-to-end workflow - from part preparation, build simulation, inspection and actual print and up to post processing and traceability of the complete process, resulting in increased productivity, lower total cost of operation (TCO) and improved quality.
Lattice Structures – Bridging the Gap between Cool Geometry and Physical Structures
Tuesday, March 24th at 10:30 am Lake Michigan, 8th Floor
Learn how to successfully move from a theoretical mathematical representation of lattice structures to printed parts. During this session, we’ll address the importance of including lattice design in the print preparation process. A demonstration of 3DXpert will be included showcasing how integrating both design intent and manufacturing constraints into the design process enables you to produce a final 3D printed part that meets your desired properties.
Optimizing Serial Production with AM Software
Tuesday, March 24th at 11:00 am Lake Michigan, 8th Floor
Learn how additive manufacturing software can help you harness the power of 3D printing technology to advance from prototyping into serial production. This session will highlight how controlling every detail in the manufacturing process - from labeling to scan path strategy - can positively impact your bottom line, using 3DXpert.
The Industrialization of AM: High Speed Direct Production with Advanced Polymers
Wednesday, March 25th at 1:00 pm Waldorf, 3rd Floor
Join 3D Systems’ applications and print process experts Patrick Dunne and Marty Johnson as they explain the breakthroughs in additive manufacturing, machine architecture, and material science that have converged to enable a fast and direct path to production. Direct digital production is a viable alternative to injection molding and cast urethane processes, and in production applications, material properties are critical. Understand how to evaluate AM materials for production and the qualifications and ASTM and ISO standard testing that matters for properties like long-term environmental stability, isotropic mechanical property tolerances, compatibility with automotive fluids and chemical reagents, electrical data (dielectric strength, dielectric constant, dissipation factor, and volume resistivity), and more.
AM Production of Large Scale, High Precision Investment Casting Patterns for Metal Parts
Thursday, March 26th at 3:00 pm Marquette, 3rd Floor
Get all the benefits of lightweighting and complexity of metal AM parts in large format through the production of large scale investment casting patterns. Learn how new advanced Stereolithography (SLA) investment casting solutions bring together innovations in process, software and material science to create an integrated solution for antimony-free, low viscosity, clean burn casting patterns. New UV curable bonding and patch materials enable the creation of single, large lightweight and easy to handle casting patterns for large metal parts. Evan Kuester, 3D Systems’ advanced applications engineer, will demonstrate a new QuickCast® DiamondTM advanced configurable internal lattice structure enabling normalization of pattern properties, process and material efficiencies. The QuickCast Diamond structure yields normalization of XYZ pattern physical properties for consistent burnout forces inside ceramic molds to prevent cracking. In addition smart features in 3D Sprint adapt the internal diamond structure to act as automatic support of internal down hanging geometry, and also allow full control of physical pattern parameters and full control of vent and drain placement.
