Webinar: 3D Printing for Machine Design

by @ 8:44 am. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt

THURSDAY November 6, 2014
– affordable, simple, low cost, part evolution, capabilities …
Speakers: Dave S. Baker, President, Worxsimple, LLC; Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing North America, Stratasys
Time: 11:00 AM (PDT)
Cost: none
Place: on the Internet
RSVP: from website

Medical device manufacturer Worxsimple is using dozens of 3D printed end-use parts in their automated machines. Built on printers such as the Stratasys Objet24 Desktop 3D printer, these parts include brackets, guards, and other custom parts that cannot be machined using traditional methods. Using the affordable and easy-to-operate Objet24 printer to create 3D printed parts allows for rapid part evolution, which improves not only machine designs, but profit margins as well.
Traditionally manufactured metal and plastic parts donĂ¢??t offer the same low cost and easy to produce option that 3D printing can provide. This presentation will discuss how to move beyond using 3D printers for only prototyping needs and toward broader applications of using 3D printed parts in machine design and manufacture of final machine components.
This presentation will discuss the following:
– Component design to leverage the printer capabilities
– Material selection for fixture applications
– Design techniques to improve the cost of your printed components
– Post print processing techniques to accommodate your designs needs
– Aesthetics of printed parts
– Scheduling advantages of 3D printing your machine components
– Cost advantages of 3D printing your machine components
