The Opportunity with Direct Digital Manufacturing
Dylan Oliver, FATHOM www.studiofathom.com
3D printing is often thought of only during the prototyping phase of product development, but designers and engineers should expect more from the additive technologies and materials available today. By embracing a direct digital manufacturing (DDM) strategy, companies are driving greater innovation, mitigating risk, lowering costs, and gaining agility. DDM enables design freedom, reduces lead times, and allows for more decentralized production, which will have significant impacts on communities across the globe.
Ultimately, less rigid development and manufacturing means that more optimized, customized, and specialized products suddenly become viable as the barriers of scale are torn down. In this session, FATHOM will discuss why companies are opting for tool-less manufacturing for end-use products with real world application examples.
How 3D Printing and Laser Scanning Complement Each Other
Cameron Bevan, GoEngineer www.goengineer.com
- 3D scanning a part to get important dimensions, mounting holes, surfaces, ect…
- We will also show the 3D scanning for reverse engineering work flow.
- We then show the possibilities of using the 3d scan data a to create custom 3D printed parts.
Getting the Most from Your Visit to an EMC Testing Laboratory
Randy Clark, CKC Laboratories, Inc www.ckc.com
EMC Basics: The physics of EMC.
– Targeted towards complete newcomers to EMC, i.e. you don’t have to be an electrical engineer
– A general introduction to the topic of EMC
– General EMC design principles
– Technical and non-technical solutions
– Recommendations for your trip to the lab
Color Management For Manufacturing
Kelly Espe, Eclipse Screenprinting www.eclipseprinting.com
The intent of this seminar is to give an overview of the LAB color model, and how it may be used to provide a quantitative, objective color specification for printed parts. We will also address best practices for color management and quality inspection.
Power of Persuasion
Video Presentation by Robert Cialdini
Call it persuading, negotiating or convincing. Ethical influence is the foundation of successful leadership, management, sales, and customer service. Robert Cialdini has spent his career systematically studying the psychology of influence. In this video, he reveals what lies at the heart of his findings: the six principles of influence that form the basis of effective, persuasive appeals. These principles-reciprocation, scarcity, authority, commitment, liking, and consensus-may seem like the jargon of social scientists, but Cialdini brings them to life. In this dynamic presentation, Dr. Cialdini provides clear step-by-step examples of behaviors that you can put to use daily to increase your influence. You will learn why you say yes to some offers, simply based on the way they are presented. And you’ll learn how to defend against offers that you’re really not interested in, no matter how effectively they’re presented. This free presentation is a $95 value, but it could save you thousands. Attend this Free Negotiating Skills presentation then visit the AmCon exhibits and apply what you’ve learned on the show floor.

Enhanced Product Development: Designing with 3D Multi Jet Fusion Technology
Don Harring, Sigma Design www.sigmadzn.com
SIGMADESIGN, a Pacific NW product development firm, is a partner with HP for early use of the new HP Multi Jet FusionTM 3D printer. Other partners chosen for this initial use phase include BMW, Nike, Jabil and more. The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionizes design, prototyping and manufacturing. It delivers superior quality physical parts faster and at half the cost of current 3D print systems.
In this presentation you’ll learn how SIGMADESIGN is designing at the voxel level. We’ll explain new findings regarding the benefits and challenges of product development using this new technology. From the perspective of designers and engineers, you’ll learn how “designing at the voxel level” is changing the design process. We’ll also share what we’ve learned about this new platform that could help accelerate and advance the technology.
10:15am to 11:15am

We will have an educational presentation covering the following topics.
“When is the optimal time to take social security”,
“What is the benefit of waiting”,
“How to determine your Full Retirement Age (FRA)”,
“Your personal replacement ratio”
“Understanding your benefit”,
“The cost of taking your benefit early”
