Upcoming Webinars and Events on 3D Printing: Roundup for December 17, 2023


As we approach the festive season, there are significantly fewer seminars and conferences happening in the 3D printing sector. In fact, this may be the last overview for 2023, but we’ll return in the coming year with plenty of fresh content. However, we still have a few things to share in today’s summary, including topics on SOLIDWORKS and thermoplastics. Continue reading for all the insights!

Uncovering 3D Printing News

Our Chief Editor Joris Peels, who also serves as the VP of Consultancy at Additive Manufacturing Research (AMR), presents a news live broadcast once or twice a week named Uncovering 3D Printing News at 9:30 am EST. Per episode, Peels hops onto LinkedIn Live and discloses, in less than 20 minutes, what he deems as the leading news narratives from the 3D printing sector for the week, and explains their significance. Some of the stories in his overview are ones we’ve highlighted at 3DPrint.com, while others aren’t; however, all are equally captivating and influential!

December 19: Augmenting SOLIDWORKS with Design

First, at 1 pm EST on Tuesday, December 19th, Dassault Systèmes is hosting a webinar about “Enhancing Your SOLIDWORKS with Next Generation Design.” In this webinar, the company’s 3D EXPERIENCE Works Industry Process Consultants Gian Calise and Noah Zieff will help attendees learn about the applications that can enhance your SOLIDWORKS designs. Additionally, this webinar will be recorded and all registrants will receive the recording at a later date.

“Step out of the traditional CAD confined space and bring out your creativity with cloud-based tools for freeform, subdivision surfacing, parametric modelling, algorithmic design, and more! The plus point? Everything you create can be integrated with your existing SOLIDWORKS parts and assemblies.”

December 20: Technical Communications with SOLIDWORKS

In the first of their two sessions this week, TriMech is presenting “Get to Know Technical Communications with SOLIDWORKS Software” at 10 am EST on Wednesday the 20th. The workshop, led by Ben Colley from TriMech, will explain how to use three vital tools from SOLIDWORKS to create visually appealing, professional-grade technical visuals and communication materials. Learn how to use SOLIDWORKS MBD to create 3D annotations and dimensions in your models and how to export them as eDrawings or 3D PDFs. Discover how SOLIDWORKS Composer can help you produce interactive animations, illustrations, and exploded views for promotional materials, user manuals, and assembly instructions. Lastly, through SOLIDWORKS Visualize, you can create photorealistic animations and renderings in various lighting conditions for your products.

“Looking for ways to create clear, accurate, and engaging technical documents for your products? Want to streamline your design-to-manufacturing process and reduce errors and costs? This webinar, which snowlights the keys to technical communication with SOLIDWORKS, is for you!”

December 21: TriMech on the Use of Thermoplastics in Polymer AM

TriMech is set to host “Thermoplastics in Polymer Additive Manufacturing” at 10 am EST on Thursday, December 21st. The session will be led by Andrew Miller, TriMech’s Hardware Applications Engineer. In this session, professionals and enthusiasts can increase their knowledge about the evolving sphere of thermoplastics in polymer additive manufacturing. The discussion will cover properties and types of important materials, along with a deep dive into specific ones like TPU, Ultem, ABS, and Nylon. Furthermore, Miller will clarify how these thermoplastics are relevant in the healthcare, automotive, and aerospace sectors.

“The diversity and practical importance of these materials, from commonly used ABS and its variations to specialized materials like PEKK and Ultems, are spotlighted in this session. The webinar provides a glimpse into how these thermoplastics are paving the way for the future of additive manufacturing. Learn about their roles and advantages in modern industrial applications in automotive, aerospace, and healthcare.”
