Track 3 - Manufacturing:
3D printing manufacturing has been one of the most innovative and rapidly growing industries in recent years, but only limited materials, such as PLA and ABS, have been widely used. Thus, there has always been a gap between end users’ expectations and the material specifications available in the market. To bridge this gap, satisfying the high requirements for safe and functional products in the 3D printing market, SK Chemicals, a South Korea based specialty chemical company has launched SKYPLETE, thermoplastic material solution for 3D printing based on its own proprietary resins and compounding technology.SKYPLETE, which is eco-friendly and safe to humans, is made of high performance thermoplastic materials specially designed for 3D printing applications. It delivers excellent printing performance while the materials do not contain hazardous components such as styrene or BPA which can be found in ABS or PC. During this presentation, SK Chemicals’ will introduce recent material development in overcoming the current limitations that FDM 3D printing technology is facing.

ACEO® is revolutionizing the world of additive manufacturing by introducing the world’s first real elastomer which can be 3D printed. Proven silicone experts from WACKER developed not only the material, but also software and hardware opening up new opportunities for various industries such as health care, automotive, electronics or even life style goods only to name a few. Protoypes, individualized products, novel designs or “impossible products” (which could not have been produced with any other technology before) can now be manufactured from silicone. The technology is based on a “drop-on-demand” principle. The print head deposits single silicone voxels on a building platform, which flow together smoothly, forming a homogenous surface. After printing a layer, the curing is activated with UV light. For complex 3D structures a support material is printed throughout the same process. At the end of the printing process, the silicone form is removed from the printer and the environmentally safe support material is easily and quickly rinsed out with water. The presentation will focus on the pioneering role ACEO® is taking in further developing this unique technology: expansion of the product portfolio with more durometers; R&D corporations in the intriguing field of biomodeling; creation of completely new lattice structures in order to achieve intelligent functionalities. In the end it’s all about to inspire the imagination of designers and engineers.

If you think 3D printing is all about boutique manufacturing, think again. 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is about supply chains and increasingly about high-volume industrial manufacturing. Manufacturers are using 3D printers to build not just prototypes or parts but also supply chains that can more rapidly respond to dynamic, real-time customer demands, reduce inventory and slice into transportation costs while dramatically compressing the time needed to ship products. Enterprise software giant SAP and UPS, the largest U.S. transportation company, have teamed to integrate 3D printing into supply chain processes and build a foundation for on-demand manufacturing. In this session, SAP will show how 3D printing won't just change manufacturing but also challenge shippers and transportation providers as on-demand manufacturing blends with on-demand shipping.

Track 4 - Business:
The perception and promise of commercial 3D printing are that it provides a simple, fast and automated digital workflow, a process where complexity is free. That perception is generally accurate up to the point that parts are removed from the 3D printer. But, as soon as parts enter the post-processing phase, the automated, push-button process becomes a manual operation that has a tangible and significant impact on a company's bottom line. Industry expert, Todd Grimm, interviewed six global manufacturers representing the automotive, consumer products, medical devices, sporting goods and architecture industries to learn about their post-processing experiences. Each detailed the measurable impact of post-processing on time, cost, quality, staffing, facilities and operations. In this presentation, Frank will define primary and secondary post-processing, describe the automated, manual and batch post-processing methods of the most common 3D printing technologies and detail Todd's significant findings.

Part 1 Integrating AM How can designers, engineers and manufacturers benefit from Additive Manufacturing? This presentation explores what techniques can be employed to investigate AM for production, no matter what industry you are involved in, what pitfalls to avoid and how to consider 3D printing another manufacturing method, and not just a tool for Product Development. Part 2 - Integration of Topology Optimization and Additive Manufacturing Additive manufacturing (AM) has opened new opportunities for fabricating complex parts that are otherwise not manufacturable. Topology optimization (TO), on the other hand, is a powerful design technique that can fully exploit the capabilities of AM. In this talk, strategies for posing and solving topology optimization problems will be discussed. Several case-studies will be presented using a SolidWorks integrated topology optimization software. Finally, the talk will discuss advanced strategies for incorporating various AM constraints, such as support-structures, during topology optimization.

Track 3 - Manufacturing:
Most FFF (fused-filament fabrication) printed parts have a weakness -- severe strength anisotropy; some parts being as bad as a 15:1 strength ratio between the XY plane and the Z axis. Z-aware additive manufacturing uses information about the stress tensor of the object (generated though either analytical analysis or finite element modeling) to produce a new set of extrusion paths that turn the weakness into strength. We align the extrusion paths with the stress tensor, and thereby achieve a major improvement in the usable part strength. We have built parts with this method and hydrostatically tested them to destruction and our results show a 3 to 5 times improvement in part strength, with no change to part CAD model, filament, machine settings, or post treatment. This 3-5x increase is shown in all polymers we tested - block copolymers (ABS), polyamines (nylon), and polyester polymers.

The separation of craniopagus twins is an extremely difficult undertaking not only due to the inherent risks and anatomical complexity of each case, but also due to the variation that is present between each set of twins. Limited autologous materials with which the plastic surgeons can reconstruct the scalp and skull after separation are also a key challenge. Virtual surgical planning (VSP) combines 3D-modeling and simulation software for the purpose of precisely planning complex surgery, making it an ideal tool in craniopagus separation. 3D-printing customized guides and jigs allows for the precise translation of VSP onto the operating table. Our presentation will report on how our team used VSP and 3D-printing in craniopagus separation to (1) design incision lines and osteotomy boundaries and precisely calculate the resulting surface area of scalp and skull deficits (2) precisely identify the tissue expander models that would be needed to generate adequate scalp to close the predicted defect, (3) produce osteotomy cutting guides that maximized the amount of bone that was repurposed for skull reconstruction, and (4) produce custom skull-caps based on normative, population-level data that were used intraoperatively to guide the shape of the reconstructed skull.

Cancer is a major public health problem worldwide. While advanced imaging technologies provide extremely useful anatomical and tumor displays for clinicians to aid in treatment planning, we need better pre-operative assessment of the tumor morphology and its relation to surrounding structures in order to help choose between different surgical approaches and prevent possible complications. This presentation will cover the steps required to derive anatomically accurate, patient-specific models in the context of urological oncology. The use of 3D printed tumor models to depict the dominant tumor to key anatomical structures will be demonstrated. In addition, the application of 3D printing in the pre-operative evaluation and treatment of kidney cancer will be discussed.

As the metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry moves towards industrial production, the need for qualification standards covering all aspects of the technology becomes ever more prevalent. While some standards and specifications for documenting the various aspects of AM processes and materials exist and continue to evolve, many such standards still need to be matured or under consideration/development within standards development organizations (SDOs). A recent joint ASTM and ISO Partner Standards Developing Organization (PSDO) agreement has provided a unique opportunity to create globally recognized standards for additive manufacturing (AM); the purpose of the agreement is to eliminate duplication of effort while maximizing resource allocation within the additive manufacturing industry. A resource to aid in the identification and development and approval of new standards is a new framework that has introduced a comprehensive structure to target various aspects of the AM space, including feedstock materials, process/equipment, and finished parts properties. This approach will also enable the development of application-specific standards to address the needs of the aerospace, medical device, and automotive industries. In addition, recent efforts to create a gap analysis roadmap through America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC) can provide a platform to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards consistent with stakeholder needs, thereby facilitating the growth of the AM industry. This roadmap is designed to identify standards (both approved and in process), assess gaps, and make recommendations for priority areas where there is a perceived need for additional R&D and standardization. Various ASTM technical committees are considering the development of standards for AM; in particular, Committee F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies is the focal point for most of the ongoing activities within ASTM. While Committee F42 continues to develop standards (jointly with ISO as well as ASTM-specific), there are opportunities in areas occupied by additional ASTM technical committees where collaboration & leveraged expertise could contribute to the overall standards portfolio described by the structure described above. This brief presentation will provide insight based on the recent ASTM/ISO agreement as well as AMSC roadmap; potential opportunities and technical considerations in support of future standards development. A pathway for qualification/certification of AM parts enabled by the appropriate standardization landscape, will also be discussed.

"3D bioprinted tissue constructs could enable new in vitro applications in 3D cell studies, drug screening, disease modeling, and, ultimately, therapeutic applications in regenerative medicine. We will highlight our recent efforts on concurrent patterning of cells and vasculature, along with new strategies to achieve active perfusion, long-term stability of thick living tissues (> 1cm thick), all of which are essential for creating a physiologically and therapeutically relevant tissue manufacturing method. With control over multicellular architecture, local microenvironment, and ability to support thick, developing tissue longitudinally, this method serves as platform for studying emergent biological functions in complex engineered microenvironments, and, may ultimately, find applications in vivo.

Track 1 - Metal:
Sensors are used widely throughout industry to detect and respond to external stimuli. Unfortunately, conventional manufacturing processes often dictate that the sensors be placed far away from the stimuli. New 3D printing processes are allowing sensors to be embedded anywhere in a metal structure enabling: - Higher Protection - A common problem with sensors operating in harsh environments is degradation overtime, e.g., radiation exposure, corrosion, impact, wear, etc. Ideally, in these kinds of situations, it would be best to bury the sensors in a solid metal substrate for protection. However, this is often difficult using conventional manufacturing technologies due to complications in sealing and elevated processing temperatures. - Higher Performance – Most sensors in use today are attached to the periphery of equipment, limiting signal strength and response times. Manufacturing processes for metal such as casting, cutting and welding are performed at high temperature and thus force sensors to be an add-on item to the final structure. Embedding sensors in metal allows the sensors to be located at the ideal location for measurement and control, leading to higher performing products. - Design Freedom – Metal 3D printing is changing the design paradigm of products from cell phones to jet engines. Low temperature metal 3D printing enables electronics and requisite wiring to be placed anywhere in a structure. As the part is grown in the printer, sensors can be embedded anywhere in the structure and wiring can be routed through circuitous routes throughout the center of a large structure. This gives designer freedom to locate structure, sensors, and wiring at the optimal location for function not the optimal location for construction.

Solid Freeform Fabrication (SFF) techniques, such as three-dimensional (3D) printing (3DP) technology or robocasting, allow for designing and characterizing custom fabricated 3D scaffolds for bone repair/replacement as well as dental prostheses. Robocasting permits for the 3D creation of off-the-shelf or custom patient/site specific, products with high levels of reproducibility and precision. Also it offers tailored interconnected porosity that other 3D printing methods may lack. Because fabrication of these structures is based on computer-aided design/manufacturing technology, these scaffolds can be printed and prepared on a custom basis, based on patient magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) data. This allows replacement/regeneration of more complex craniofacial bone structure.
