June 21: Tools to Implement AM with GE Additive
At 10 am EST on Tuesday the 21st, GE Additive is holding a webinar on “Beyond the Machine: Tools Needed to Successfully Implement Metal Additive.” The presenter, GE Additive Project Manager Halima Iqbal, will look into the available ancillaries for achieving success in metal AM, and also introduce the available capability packages for the company’s M2 Series 5 DMLM printer, which can be customized to a customer’s specific needs.
“Metal additive manufacturing offers numerous benefits for producing innovative parts, whether you intend to use the technology for prototyping or low-scale production or full industrialization. While important, the metal additive machine you select is only part of the equation when it comes to implementing additive manufacturing. A variety of tools are necessary to help you achieve success, whether it’s software, hardware or qualification assistance. And the tools you need can vary depending on what your manufacturing goals are (prototyping vs. production) and the industry for which you are producing parts (regulated vs. non-regulated).”

June 23: 3D Printing Hollywood Props ultraFAST
Speaking of Nexa3D, it’s joining ASME this Thursday, June 23rd, at 1 pm EST to discuss how to make “Hollywood Props with ultraFAST Desktop 3D Printing.” Nexa3D’s Mike Currie will talk with Rob Wiggins, a 3D designer and Hollywood prop maker, about how Nexa3D’s ultraFAST AM technology is used in Hollywood to increase throughput and manufacture accurate one-off parts fast and at less cost, how Wiggins designs and produces full-scale props and characters with 3D printing, and the prop maker’s recent discovery of how 3rd generation resin 3D printers can help him print projects in just hours, using a variety of performance materials.
“3D printing is becoming ubiquitous in Hollywood. The flexibility to manufacture one-off parts quickly and cheaply makes the technology an invaluable tool. Rob Wiggins is one such Hollywood prop maker who has worked on the Transformers, Star Wars, and Marvel film franchises as a contractor for Hasbro, as well as designing and producing props and characters for major TV shows and Movies.”

June 23: Stratasys Talks Large Geometry Prints with DLP
Also at 1 pm EST on the 23rd, Stratasys will hold its latest webinar, “Overcoming Large Geometry Challenges in DLP 3D Printing.” Marshall Ling, Process R&D Manager at Stratasys, will teach attendees how a programmable print process allows for new applications that were previously nearly impossible due to the inherent challenges of DLP. You’ll also get to see real-world examples that show how the Origin One printer can produce advanced geometries, like smaller densely-nested parts or solid molds.
“A lesser-known challenge for many if not all 3D printing technologies is the ability to print large bulky parts without sacrificing part quality. Whether it be thermal gradients, internal stresses, or throughput hurdles; most 3D printing technologies must overcome at least one of these factors. In the case of DLP printing it’s all the above.”

June 23: Nondestructive Evaluation Services with America Makes
From 2-3 pm EST on the 23rd, America Makes is holding a TRX Webinar called “Good Vibrations: Process Compensated Resonance Testing for Additive Manufacturing Inspection.” New Mexico-based Vibrant Corporation provides nondestructive evaluation (NDE) services to aerospace, automotive, and power generation maintainers and manufacturers, using a whole-field Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) inspection to scan a component’s resonance frequencies; then, the data is analyzed with machine learning and statistical analysis tools. Vibrant uses PCRT for parts with traditional forms of manufacturing, as well as additive, and parts with structural flaws will have a different resonance signature. During this webinar, Vibrant will give technical background on PCRT, discuss its work in the America Makes Maturation of Advanced Manufacturing for Low-Cost Sustainment (MAMLS) Program, and provide examples of PCRT applications for additive manufacturing.
“In production testing, the PCRT scan and analysis is performed automatically, requiring no operator interpretation of the results. Inspections with PCRT typically require less than 10 seconds to scan the part and return a Pass/Fail result. The whole field nature of PCRT enables inspection of highly complex part geometries. An America Makes report determined that PCRT is one of only two NDE methods than can inspect the full range of complexity expected in additively manufactured components. Vibrant and PCRT have established a stellar track record of eliminating field failures in critical components. Vibrant’s inspection services reduce costs, accelerate customer inspection throughput, and offer statistically rigorous tools for monitoring and controlling production processes.”
