What is an HP DFAM event? Should you attend? ...

Additive Manufacturing

Not only is HP changing Additive Manufacturing with their print technology but also in their approach to advance the utilization of 3D print within manufacturing.  HP has a unique perspective since they have built their reputation on top quality and innovative equipment and they are sharing their knowledge on how to leverage 3D print from design all the way to manufacturing.  This series is designed to help companies understand how they can move from prototyping to production using 3D print.  HP currently uses Additive Manufacturing to produce final use parts and have cost justified and proven out the economics.  It must also be noted, after I have attended a number of these sessions, the concepts and training provided are applicable to other 3D print technologies such as SLS and Carbon.  I assure you it’s truly a great educational session.

Some highlights of what you will learn:

  • How and why HP decided to leverage MJF 3D printing technology to manufacture over 140 function parts used in each of our new MJF 500/300 series 3D printers vs. injection molding.
  • How to identify and select the right applications for additive manufacturing across your product lifecycle.
  • Training on the fundamentals of effective design for MJF.
  • How the process works and design strategies for MJF process optimization.
  • How the materials behave and what to consider when designing for each of them.
  • The new design paradigms that are enabled by additive manufacturing and the required mindset change.
  • How to design for value maximization (process and cost).
  • Training on the fundamentals of effective design for MJF.
  • Live Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) demo and application examples to inspire you.

You are always welcome to stay after the scheduled presentations and discussions to consult with technical experts from HP 3D Printing on your own parts.   That could be the most valuable part of the session is the post conversation on your specific challenges and if 3D print makes sense to utilize. 

Feel free to reach out to me to find the next HP DFAM event in your area.
