    Steven Kjar, Design Engineer - BioProduction Division, Thermo Fisher Scientific
    Join PADT and Thermo Fisher Scientific's Steven Kjar for a presentation on the use of additive manufacturing in the development process for pharmaceutical equipment.

    Historically additive manufacturing has had a limited role within companies who supply to the biopharmaceutical industry due to the industry’s requirements on materials and practices. Stainless steel components are typically used and switching over to the implementation of plastic-based materials used in additive manufacturing was a major undertaking.

    Not only do the advanced manufacturing process capabilities of Stratasys 3D printers make for a worthy solution, the company also produces a variety of composite materials that can operate within a bioreactor due to their unique characteristics.

    Register now to learn more about this incredibly unique application.

    About Steven Kjar: Steven has attended many colleges and universities while developing skills, including Snow College, Brigham Young University, Utah State University, University of Washington, and Penn State. After a long search for the perfect career, he found his passion in mechanical engineering with a focus on 3D printing. Steven currently working at Thermo Fisher Scientific as a mechanical engineer in R&D. As part of his responsibilities he has been entrusted with the development of an additive manufacturing program for Thermo Fisher in Logan, Utah, and has spent six years building a 3D printing lab that is now capable of producing ISO13485 compliant parts.

    Steven wants to move to the next challenge of producing additively manufactured parts for end use; parts produced to reduce cost, serve a custom purpose, or to make life better for others.

  • 3D Printing in Construction - PVAMC Sep 15 2020 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ben Shepard, Lead VDC Engineer, Hensel Phelps
    Join PADT and Ben Shepard from Hensel Phelps for a presentation on the company's use of the Stratsys F120 in the construction industry.

    The success of any construction project is dependent on maintaining a high level of quality and attention to detail from the initial planning process, through the construction of the building. As one of the largest general contractors in the United States, Hensel Phelps clearly illustrates a belief in this practice. Prior to implementing 3D printing into its process, Hensel Phelps, like many other construction firms, relied primarily on computer generated imagery (CGI) and hand-drafted modeling to showcase designs and construction basics early on in the planning phase. This initial modeling process is not only key for initial customer meetings, but is also an integral starting point for the construction process itself.

    When weighing different options, the company was drawn to 3D printing due to its advantages over more traditional building methods. Models often require adjustments and changes as they go through the design process. Thanks to its unparalleled production speed, 3D printing allows for faster turnaround on more iterative projects.

    Register now to learn more about this incredibly unique application for 3D printing.

    About Ben Shepard: As a Lead Virtual Design and Construction Engineer at Hensel Phelps, Ben Shepard applies his 16 years of construction industry experience to focus on 3D animation, graphics, and 3D printing. He is responsible for creating 3D models and visuals that are used for procurement efforts and to support the construction process. Ben is a graduate of Colorado State University with a degree in Interior Design.

  • Structural Optimization & Additive Improvements in Ansys 2020 R2 Sep 2 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Doug Oatis, Lead Mechanical Engineer, PADT, Inc.
    With advancements in manufacturing often comes new tools to help drive optimization of said advancements. One of the best examples of this pairing is Ansys simulation and additive manufacturing. Ansys Additive helps to optimize design for 3D printing, determine any potential stresses or distortions, and predict the microstructure of the part based on thermal history during fabrication.

    Simulation eliminates trial and error and gives you confidence that the part will be successfully built the first time with sound structural properties. It also plays a key role in verifying optimized design, with the inclusion of topology optimization. This provides the ability to specify where supports and loads are located on a volume of material, letting the software find the perfect shape.

    With 2020 R2, Ansys provided a series of key updates to these two tools, spanning a variety of areas including:

    - Optimization Setup
    - Parameter-free morphing
    - Modifying STL's
    - UI Improvements
    - And much more

    Join PADT's Lead Mechanical Engineer Doug Oatis for a deep dive into what you can expect with these new updates and how they can benefit both your additive and simulation workflows.
