Details

This meeting will focus on additive manufacturing. We will see presentations from multiple industry experts, exploring 3D printing technologies, applications, and design tools. We will be hosted by 3D printing experts Robert Steiner and Aljosa Kemperle at Roboto.NYC

This meeting is presented with support from Cimquest (cimquest-inc.com/), Paperless Parts (www.paperlessparts.com) and the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network (swugn.org).

Our guests:

Matt Griffin: Ultimaker
Matthew Griffin is Director of Community at Ultimaker North America.
Previously, Matt was community manager at Makerbot and Adafruit.

Dave Macfie: Cimquest
Dave is a degreed mechanical engineer who currently manages 3D printer sales for Cimquest; which represents several additive manufacturing technologies. For the last 16 years, Dave and his team have helped thousands of customers implement successful additive strategies. Today, newer and emerging technologies; such-as HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) make it possible to produce exceptional functional prototypes or large numbers of final-use capable parts at speeds, costs and quality that are competitive with traditional fabrication processes. Dave will explain HP’s strategy, the MJF process; including relevant costs of ownership.

Donald Malloy: Trimech
The April 5th SWUG NYC presentation will be focused on 3D scanning applications and scalable additive manufacturing solutions for functional prototyping & manufacturing. The presentation will touch on the development of additive manufacturing products currently offered and in development. The last part of the presentation I will dive into applications of 3D scanning within a diverse spectrum of industries, such as aerospace and automotive. I look forward to meeting the New York City Solidworks User Group and presenting the next generation of innovative design tools!

Marlon Banta: SOLIDWORKS
This session will demonstrate the new workflows and tools when importing 3D scanned data with new mesh import options for importing STL and OBJ file types containing tessellated data. Attendees will learn new effective mesh modeling techniques of modifying mesh data by adding/subtracting geometry from the mesh bodies.
