Applications in the Spotlight

  1. Stop Prototyping. Start Producing

    Paul DiLaura | VP of Sales of Carbon

    Carbon is at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science.  Paul DiLaura, Carbon’s VP of Sales, will share Carbon’s vision of the key technology and materials developments that are poised to accelerate industrial manufacturing.  We’ll draw from real-world case studies, showcasing how Carbon is helping foremost companies like reinvent their approach to digital manufacturing in order to Stop Prototyping and Start Producing. We will also deep dive into how Carbon and adidas developed the first additive manufacturing mass production footwear, Futurecraft 4D, and how Carbon has enabled adidas to become the largest user and benefactor of additive technology in production footwear.

  2. Real production parts using the HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology

    Brendan Hart | Engineering Technical Lead for 3D Technologies of SIGMADESIGN

    • The technology potential
    • Accelerating design and production timelines
    • The business case
    • Initial challenges and lessons learned
    • Next steps and outlook
  3. From Prototypes to Production - Leapfrogging Through Additive Manufacturing

    Dan Grigoras | Director of Business Development of 3D Hubs

    As additive manufacturing technologies become increasingly capable of repeatable and reproducible production, the dream of manufacturing production parts through 3D printing is quickly becoming a feasible reality. This reliability is also enabling, and driving, an increasing number of high-value applications, some of which are now becoming the norm for many industries and in many consumer markets.

    The goal of this talk is to explore this industry transformation from the point of view of service bureaus and the beneficiaries of the technologies.

    This presentation will discuss the various perspectives of additive manufacturing as a commercially viable means of end-use parts production, the ramifications and impacts this industry shift will impose on service bureaus. Business models and strategies service bureaus can leverage to become an enabler, and leader, in this new economy will also be covered.

    The second part of this presentation will focus on the benefits this shift will bring to clients and consumers, the business models and strategies they can use to seamlessly transition from prototyping to production. The different 3D printing enabled scenarios that allow product designers to reach their market faster, and deliver a tailored and fast evolving product to their clients will also be explored.

    As a result of this talk, the audience will be able take away actionable insight that will enable them to drive this transformation in their organisations and lead the way to a stronger additive future.
