Join Us at these Premier Additive Manufacturing Events

What if you could cut your product development cycle and lead times by half – or even more?
How much more efficient would your design and engineering workgroups be with an accessible, powerful professional 3D printer combined with a streamlined 3D CAD-to-3D print workflow?
At these seminars, industry experts will be on hand to discuss how they are implementing 3D CAD to Topology Optimisation to Additive Manufacturing technologies and present various case studies with real-life examples of how such technologies are transforming traditional manufacturing. Hear how the materials used in additive manufacturing are ever changing and how metals, polymers, and advanced composites are utilised in a variety of additive manufacturing technologies.

The Wellington event will include the launch of New Zealand’s first and only Stratasys J750, recently delivered to the Victoria University of Wellington. The Stratasys J750 is the world’s most advanced full-colour, multi-material 3D printers with 500,000+ colour combinations, highly accurate color-matching, transparent to opaque color gradients, and advanced clear material with texture bringing to life even the finest, most delicate details.

What will you learn?

Learn about SolidWorks for Additive Manufacturing (AM) by using one platform to optimize part design and simulate manufacturing processes for both metal and plastics, and leverage these techniques to improve the development process for your AM components.

See how 3D CAD design is then taken to 3D print through Grabcad Print – a smooth 3D printing workflow.

Uncover the benefits of Metal AM for metal fabricators and get the latest updates in Desktop Metal(DM) technology including the use of DM Fabricate software to prep and automate models for metal 3D printing as well as the use of DM FabFlow for easy monitoring and control of workflows across the shop floor.

Learn about Nylon 12CF, the new Carbon-Filled technology from Stratasys. Discover the benefits of using strong thermoplastics to produce light-weight tools while matching the capability that metal tools can provide.

At the Wellington event, learn about the world’s most advanced multi-colour and multi-material 3D printer – the Stratasys J750. Talk to the users of this technology and see the potential it will bring to your business or your research projects.
