My Notes


About America Makes

America Makes is pleased to be managing the agenda for the Knowledge Bar at the Additive ETC (Emerging Technology Center) during IMTS 2018 in Chicago.

America Makes is the nation’s leading collaborative partner in additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing (3DP) technology research, discovery, creation, and innovation. Structured as a public-private partnership -- with member organizations from industry, academia, government, non-government agencies, and workforce and economic development resources -- we innovate and accelerate AM/3DP to increase our nation’s global manufacturing competitiveness.

America Makes was established in 2012, is based in Youngstown, Ohio, and is the flagship Institute of Manufacturing USA. America Makes is managed and operated by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM).

3rd Dimension

Category: Guest Appearance

Date(s): 09/11/2018, 02:30 PM - 09/11/2018, 03:00 PM


3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing Co has successfully entered into a full-scale production partnership with KALLISTA, a Kohler Company brand, for the manufacture of the award-winning Grid faucet.  Featuring sleek lines and a minimalist design, the Grid faucet is a testament to the De Stijl movement and its shift from excess decoration to applying the principals of abstraction to create works of art.  3rd Dimension’s technical collaboration with KALLISTA early in the design phase allowed for streamlined solutions to Grid’s unique outline form and discreet interior waterways, turning a complex vision into a stunning reality.  This 15-minute presentation will outline the journey from an industrial design concept to a fully-refined, productionized consumer product through both metal-additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques.


Additive Manufacturing: Transforming Global Manufacturing with HP,Inc.

Category: Guest Appearance

Date(s): 09/12/2018, 09:30 AM - 09/12/2018, 10:00 AM


As additive manufacturing moves into higher levels of production, it shall begin to displace injection molding. Much of the work to enable that 3D print production however, will still be carried out as a collaboration between design and procurement engineers. As the shift starts to occur, we’ll discuss what will be new vs. what stays the same across strategies and techniques of creating a 3D printed part vs a molded one.

 


Advanced Simulation to Leverage the True Potential of Additive

Bobby Cook, Business Development Manager, e-Xstream engineering, MSC software company

Additive Manufacturing of polymers is transitioning from rapid prototyping to a true industrial production technique. While it brings valuable opportunities to the industry, such as drastically decreasing the time-to-market of new products or enabling lightweight, multi-material and multi-functional designs, it also comes with a series of challenges for the engineers. The reliability of the mechanical properties of the final part still has some uncertainty and is not fully supported by standard engineering tools. Dimensional accuracy is not always met and cannot be predicted prior to printing.

The rapid and substantial growth of additive has made it a solution for many businesses. But, designing for additive manufacturing — especially for metals — can be difficult, costly and challenging. Traditional design processes do not apply here and there is a known shortage of workers capable of supporting the innovation requirements of this highly technical field.

Our research with 200 manufacturers ranging in size from Fortune 10 to startups, revealed that lack of a skilled workforce was a barrier to adoption of the new technologies that drive Smart Manufacturing.  The types of skills cited were surprising but given the exponentially rapid advances in tools utilized on the factory floor, it is clear that new training models are needed for manufacturers to be competitive. In our talk we would present results from the study and suggest new options for training the New Collar Workforce.

Being able to translate a well designed metal part into a successfully printed part is not easy. Users often experience warpage, shrinkage, recoater blade crashes, etc. without realizing these are merely symptoms of the larger issue, thermal distortion. Thermal distortion is the main issue hampering successful first prints in metal additive.

Using Crystallon for Grasshopper to Create Lattice Structures

Category: Guest Appearance

Kaitlyn Bailey, Applications Engineer, FATHOM

Additive manufacturing’s freedom of complexity allows for organic part geometries that would be difficult to manufacture in any other way. Lattice design has clear applications such as structural light-weighting, energy absorption, insulation, heat transfer, filtration, and medical implants. While these applications are exciting and have many benefits for the industries they belong to, there is a gap in the engineer and designer’s toolbox to achieve these complex designs. There is a race for software developers to release programs that can create lattice designs, but many are immature and still adding functionality.
