Sessions Not to Miss?

All of our sessions offer value, and each description is available on the session page. Here are a few session descriptions not to miss:

Intro to HP 3D Printing

Learn how the most advanced additive manufacturing technology to date is changing the way end-use parts are being created worldwide, right now. See how HP’s revolutionary multi jet fusion technology is able to replace expensive and timely injection mold creation for Nylon, TPU, and now Polypropylene parts! Get real parts in-hand in days or hours, as well as provide fully functional, full-color prototypes the likes of which the industry has never seen.

Producing Gas Masks for MPD with 3D Printing

Proving the rapid manufacturing prowess of the HP multi jet fusion additive manufacturing solution, learn how GSC was able to rapidly design, prototype and manufacture completely custom PPE for the Milwaukee Police Department. During peak shortages of traditional equipment availability, GSC was able to outfit over 700 officers with life saving protection in 1 week with the most advanced additive manufacturing technology available today.

Applications & Case Studies with Markforged 3D Printing

This webinar will discuss a variety of Markforged manufacturing use cases and applications. Learn how local businesses are using Markforged parts to save time and money while winning more business and identify key areas where Markforged can help business starting on day one.

Power Hour: 3D Scanning

From Reverse Engineering to Quality Control, more and more companies are finding innovative uses for modern 3D scanners. Along with these new opportunities come new challenges in processing vast amounts of data into a usable form. Join us for a beginner-level introduction to using SOLIDWORKS, along with a few other programs, to simplify and digest scan data into a form engineers can use.

Art to Part – Lifecycle of a Part

This session follows a one-off part through the entire SOLIDWORKS production spectrum, from Design to Simulation through photo-realistic renderings. Once it receives the go-ahead the part is given to the 3D printing team for prototyping and production using Markforged and HP printers. After attending you will likely recognize one (or more!) areas your own workflows can be streamlined and improved with a few key tools.
