Webinar: HP’s Multi Jet Fusion, Reinventing 3D Printing

Though a household name in computing systems and printers, HP is a relative newcomer to the 3D printing segment. What can its Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology do that others can't? It brings disruptive technology, according to HP's David Tucker, himself a product designer. In this Oct. 25 presentation, Tucker discusses the type of projects where MJF offers superior results; ways to prep the CAD model to take advantage of MJF; and methods to optimize print layer and density.

Webinar: How Realistic is Your Simulation? Bridging the Gap Between Simulation and Test

The use of simulations to displace physical tests has become essential in accelerating product development and reducing costs.  However, simulation results may be substantially different from what is observed in reality.  This could lead to premature product failure, costly warranty payments and a redesign campaign. In this Nov. 9 webcast, Dr. Mark Andrews, UQ Technology Steward, SmartUQ, discusses why simulation results might not always be reliable, ways to calibrate simulation using test results and how to spot simulation anomalies and inaccurate results.

Live Panel Discussion: Optimal Design Technology Outlook: Jan. 31, 2017

In the past, engineers relied on their industry knowledge, experience, and aesthetic sensibilities to decide the shape of a product. Today, they have the option to turn to generative design, topology optimization, and other technologies to solicit input from AI-like algorithms. But not enough of them may be taking advantage of the new tools, or even know about them. Our expert panelists will discuss how design optimization works whether the software-proposed answers can be trusted and whether automated design will replace design engineers.
