Mediabistro Announces Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo in Hong Kong to Shed Light on the Impacts of 3D Printing Across Industries; Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates to Keynote

3D Printing ExpoMediabistro Inc.  and 3DPrintingIndustry.com are hosting Hong Kong’s first significant tradeshow about 3D printing, the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, on August 26 – 27, 2014. With 3D printing rapidly picking up pace in the industry, both in terms of its development and adoption, Mediabistro has invited the brightest and most prominent industry leaders from around the world to converge in Hong Kong to share their views on the future of the technology, as well as strategies to succeed in the upcoming third industrial revolution.

“3D printing was invented quite some time ago, but due to the printers’ limited capabilities and the high costs associated with 3D printing during the technology’s infancy, it wasn’t really adopted or used extensively – until recently,” said Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Mediabistro Inc. “Looking at how fast the 3D printing technology is currently developing, I think it’s only a matter of time until 3D printing completely revolutionizes all aspects of manufacturing. Hong Kong, being the gateway city to the world’s capital of manufacturing – China, is one of the most suitable locations for us to host Inside 3D Printing. If anyone wants to ride this upcoming economic boom, this conference and exposition is something not to be missed.”

T3D printing expohe two-day event, organized by Mediabistro, consists of 18 seminars covering topics from aerospace, art, and bioprinting to the makers revolution, start-ups of all kinds, and more. Stratasys, the Platinum Sponsor for the event, will be hosting the morning keynote session on August 27. The keynote speakers participating in the conference include Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant and President, Wohlers Associates, Inc.; Nave Rachman, Technical Director, Stratasys Asia Pacific & Japan; and Michele Marchesan, Chief Opportunity Officer, 3D Systems.

Wohlers will host the opening keynote titled “The Next Frontier in 3D Printing.” Working as a consultant for many corporations in different industries, Wohlers will share his views on where the 3D printing technology is headed based on his extensive experience and professional background.

3D printing expoRachman’s day 2 morning keynote is titled “Manufactory Application in 3D Printing: Direct
Digital Manufacturing (DDM).” He will explain how traditional manufacturing tools have successfully been replaced by FDM technology. Later in the day, Marchesan will highlight key trends and share advanced manufacturing initiatives during the afternoon keynote titled “Manufacturing the Future.”

In addition to an impressive lineup of speakers, the event will also feature Hong Kong’s largest exhibition related to 3D printing. If your company is interested in sponsoring or exhibiting, contact us at 3dprinting.sponsors@mediabistro.com.

3D Printing Industry Predictions from Terry Wohlers

April 7, 2014
3d-innovations.com

3D printing industry expert, Terry Wohlers was a speaker at the 3D Printing Conference in New York last week and had some key insights into the future of the industry. Below are a few of our favorite excerpts from his presentation — click here to read the summary in it’s entirety.

Terry’s market research firm, Wohlers Associates, each year compiles an industry report that includes data from around the world.  This year he stated that 3D Printing will be the recipient of substantial investments globally.  China plans to put 750 million yuan [$240 million US] into AM over next 6 years and are doing so by “buying their way in”.  Singapore has earmarked $400M for advanced manufacturing programs that include 3D printing.

Terry feels that the obstacles and challenges in 3D Printing are mostly design driven.

More and more effort is needed to not just take a traditional design and 3D Print it, but rather to re-think the entire part design to take into account the capabilities and limitations of AM.

“3D Printing in production pushes the limits of the technology”, says Terry.  “We need quality and consistency, in short, process controls.”

Predictions are that by 2021, AM will be a $10.8 Billion industry.  If total global manufacturing is a $10.5 Trillion industry and we conservatively predict that 3D printing takes over 2% of that market, we still only talking about $210 Billion annually.  So,Terry concludes, “we’ve only seen tip of the iceberg!”

We can’t wait to see what the future holds for additive manufacturing!

It is time again for the Hawaii STEM Conference! This year marks the 4th successful year
of the Hawaii STEM conference. STEM/Service Learning students, teachers, parents, community and business leaders are invited to gather on Maui to celebrate STEM learning projects, experience the excitement of a regional technology conference and share stories with other students from different islands. A primary goal of this STEM event is to challenge and encourage as much participation from students as possible.

This year there will be competitions in the following areas:

  1. CAD Application Showcase
  2. Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  3. Video
  4. Music
  5. Poster Competition (Download STEMWORKS logo to be used in the poster competition)
  6. Web Design
  7. Game Design
  8. SketchUp Urban Design Competition

Breakout Sessions
Approximately 200 facilitators and students will have the opportunity to attend hands-on and presentation-style training breakout sessions during the Hawaii STEM Conference.

There are a lot of great breakout sessions but the two we are most excited for are the Pre-Engineering sessions:

  1. Pre-Engineering In 3D – Beginners — CAD Discover Pre-Engineering and Design methods using 3D CAD. This hands-on session demonstrates how 3D Technology makes engineering & design interactive, transforming ideas into prototypes and products.
  2. Pre-Engineering In 3D – Advanced — CAD Must have 2 years experience with CAD programming. This hands-on session offers students a more comprehensive dive into 3D technology with more advanced engineering & design interactive challenges.

3D Innovations is a proud sponsor of the Hawaii STEM Conference. It is a great opportunity for students to explore the large and ever-changing word of STEM education.  We highly encourage students attend this wonderful STEM experience!
