Workshop: Design for Additive Manufacturing Presented by Réseau Québec-3D, CME Canada Makes & McGill University
This half-day workshop will feature presentation from some of Canada’s leading experts in additive manufacturing (AM) and offer the chance to network with some of Canada’s AM professionals. The workshop’s goal is to help industry personnel understand one of the most important components of AM, designing for additive manufacturing DfAM.
Additive Manufacturing is changing your sector whether you like it or not, be ready!
It is no secret that AM is disrupting key sectors of Canada’s economy and Réseau Québec-3D and Canada Makes are working together to bring you the expertise and knowledge needed to help understand how you can use this powerful new technology to your advantage and be ready to adapt.
As usual, networking will be a primary focus of this workshop so we plan on including breaks and a networking lunch so you can ask questions face-to-face. Experts from Altair, Renishaw, Expanse Microtechnologies and the CRIQ will offer insightful discussions in their area of expertise. We look forward to seeing you there!
Sign up now as seating is limited.

Frank Defalco, Manager Canada Makes
May 31st saw more than 200 industry professionals attend the Taking the Lead in Additive Manufacturing conference in Boucherville, Québec. The day’s sessions included both International and National leaders in additive manufacturing. This was the third annual Réseau Quebec-3D (RQ3D) conference organized jointly by Canada Makes, CRIQ, PRIMA and CRITM.
The knowledge shared by the day’s speakers was both instructive and well suited for the business professionals on hand. The day started with a video message from the Honourable Navdeep Singh Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, followed by the day’s keynote, Greg Morris of GE Additive, and international speakers M. Jalel Nadji, Application Engineer Materialise USA, M. Daan A.J. Kersten, CEO Additive Industries from The Netherlands, Alexandre Lahaye AddUp (Micheline-Fives) France.
Of note was Greg Morris response to a question from the audience about where Canada additive efforts should focus? Canada should really be developing a supply chain that can add more value to its natural resource mineral extraction sector. Afterwards, the audience was treated to a surprise video featuring Cassidy Silbernagel, which lead into Daan Kertens presentation. Cassidy is a two-time winner of Additive Industries Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge. You can view the video here.
During last year’s event RQ3D and Canada Makes signed a collaborative agreement designed to promote 3D printing and help Canadian manufacturers integrate this new technology. Denis Hardy, President & CEO Centre de recherche industrielle du Quebec (CRIQ), said “this conference proves that the strong alliance forged last year between RQ3D and Canada Makes is leading the push in the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) across Canada.”
“I am very grateful to have been invited to speak at this conference. Canada Makes and RQ3D put together a great agenda with world renowned leaders in additive manufacturing which offered insightful and truly valuable information.” said Martin Petrak, CEO Precision ADM.
Canada Makes would like to thank James Wilson, Deputy Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, Province of Manitoba for attending this years conference and we hope to continue working closely with Manitoba and other provinces in building a world leading AM sector.
The afternoon was highlighted by McGill’s University’s Mathieu Brochu’s presentation about the AM ecosystem and how to achieve an equilibrium. The day also included two significant announcements, first, is a brand new AM training initiative called Fab 3D and a new 3D Printing Design Challenge for Canada’s post secondary students that will include cash prizes.
Canada Makes is very pleased with the positive feedback received for this conference, which now must be considered Canada’s leading Additive manufacturing event. We would like to thank Louis Duhamel for doing a great job as facilitator and look forward to another great event next year.
