Opening Keynote
The Era of In-Space Manufacturing Has Begun On November 24, 2014, a team of engineers at NASA and Made In Space, Inc. created the first object ever manufactured in space. With it, individuals, schools, companies and even governments no longer have to hurl pre-built goods into space. On-orbit manufacturing and assembly of everything from individual components to entire spacecraft changes the economics of spaceflight, how missions are designed and the speed at which in space activities may be carried out. Made In Space president Andrew Rush will discuss how in-space manufacturing capabilities that exist today enable tech development, tech demonstration, part delivery, equipment fixes, operational life extension and even spacecraft creation by anyone.

Morning Keynote
3D Printing Meets Human Needs : New Opportunities to Explore The talk will focus on 3D printing as a vital vehicle for addressing complex human needs. The ability to create complex forms on-demand represents a departure from the traditional, mass-production-driven mindset; so much so, that it challenges us to reconsider assumptions surrounding many body-related solutions of the past. The value in 3D printing extends far beyond our fascination with complex, rapidly created shapes, into what is often a complete rethink of business models, problem solving, the way we approach human needs. Examples will be presented that demonstrate how the unique attributes of this technology transform our approach to historic challenges that humans have faced, and offer new hope for future problem solving.

Afternoon Keynote
The Future of Making Things We are on the brink of change with product design and development. The manufacturing industry is changing and Autodesk is committed to building a new ecosystem for the future of how things are made. Today, the link between software and hardware for 3D printing is in need of improvement. Software must translate digital content into the right format to be interpreted and produced by the printer, but there are many potential points for failure in that process. Tightly integrated hardware, software, materials and services are a critical element for speeding innovation in 3D printing. This is where Spark comes in as an open 3D printing platform at the intersection of all four, facilitating a much improved information exchange between design software and the printer. But we can’t do it alone. Spark, along with the 3D printing companies building on top of the platform—including hardware manufacturers, materials science companies to crowd-funded product design startups—will help innovate the 3D printing pipeline and drive additive manufacturing live up to its potential.
