Wohlers Associates deliver first ever DfAM session in Canada

Wohlers Associates, represented by Terry Wohlers and Olaf Diegel, delivered its first and successful session in Montreal, Quebec. The June 12-14 Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) course, sponsored by Canada Makes Partner CRIQ, was attended by bright and relatively young people experienced with CAD.

Participants came from a variety of sectors, including aerospace, industrial equipment and machinery, CAD and AM product sales and services, academia, government, and research. All with a common goal of of taking the next step in designing for AM. 

Terry Wohlers offered this about the session, “some of the participants said that they especially appreciated the hands-on topology optimization and lattice structure exercises. One participant stated that he attends many technical AM events and this one was, by far, one of the most valuable. Another said he appreciated that lead instructor Olaf Diegel spoke French, although most of the course was conducted in English.”

“Learning how to Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) is critical for maximizing the output from your Additive Equipment,” said participant Hargurdeep Singh Director of Additive Manufacturing CAD MicroSolutions Inc. “Terry Wohlers and Olaf Diegel presented an excellent demonstration of DfAM. I particularly enjoyed learning about the Generative Design and Part Consolidation exercises using hands-on learning techniques.”

The average score given by the participants was 4.9 on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being best, so we were quite pleased with it.

Wohlers Associates will be holding another special three-day course on design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) in Frisco, Colorado August 8 to 10, 2018wohlersassociates.com/DfAM.html

4th Annual Réseau Québec-3D Conference: Transforming your business model with 3D Printing

This coming May 16th, Réseau Québec-3D will hold its fourth annual 3D Printing conference in Montreal with the theme: “Transforming your business model with 3D Printing”. Be sure to join more than 200 participants and exhibitors for one of Canada’s most important additive manufacturing (AM) conferences.

The event is once again a collaborative effort between CRIQ, Prima Québec, Canada Makes and CRITM and offers the opportunity to hear world class experts in additive manufacturing who will present how this technology transformed their business model.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet face-to-face and network with both international and national AM leaders that have demonstrated expertise throughout the additive manufacturing value chain and continue to help position Québec and Canada as a major global player in this flourishing industry.
