Your back for more? This is part 5 of the "What I learned at AMUG" series. This post is from Mark Oakes, Account manger, from our Novi, MIchigan office. See here for part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4. 1. Meeting and having a one-on-one discussion with industry inventors. Scott Crump; I asked him what would be the next great step in the industry. He asked me if I thought I could sell a 3D Printer that produced thousands of parts a day. I said "Sell it!?, Heck, I'd buy one!" (I made Scott Crump smile and Laugh). Carl Deckard; Met the Father of Selective Laser Sintering 3D Printing as 3dprint.com calls him. Interesting but quiet fellow.I also met a...
This is a continuation of the "What I learned at AMUG 2017 series" This post is from Evette Brodnik, Account Manager, from our Cleveland, Ohio Office. See here for part 1, part 2, and part 3. Some take aways: The hands on classes were a great opportunity. I enjoyed the Sand casting/Investment casting class and having the opportunity to touch, feel and pour molten tin into the mold and release. Sometimes that’s all it takes to have a clearer understanding of what you are trying to convey. I enjoyed Siobhan filming me as well! Meeting the Stratasys people face to face was a pleasure. A few I have relied on for help when Jeremy, our own Application Engineer, was out; it...
If you've been following my last few blog posts, you won't be surprised this is part 3 of a series on what our team learned at Amug this year. See Part 1 or Part 2. This post is from Rich Baes, one of our account managers from Novi, Michigan. He's been in the Additive Industry for a long time! Here are a few of the things I took away from the AMUG conference: It’s not about prototyping anymore, it’s about leveraging the technologies to find solutions for our customers; from automotive to aerospace, plastic to metal, and most importantly, I learned to “think differently". I saw many old colleagues still in the business and met several younger up-and-comers. This is a...
If you haven't already, please read Nate's Blog Post on Failing Fast with 3D Printing (Here). I wanted to take a moment to tell my story on how I failed fast on a design project I finished a few months ago. Back story - every year, I try to come up with a design for 3D Printed trade show give aways (a.k.a. Swag!). I love good swag. Over the years we've had pill bottles, door stops, basketball games the size of a business card, and bottle openers. This year before our first trade show, sometime in January or February, I was trying to come up with an idea for our yearly swag. If you've been on the internet at all over...
In my last post, I meantioned I wanted to share what our team shared with me reguading their trip to AMUG this year. This blog post will be on what Siohban Kelly, Account Manager, learned at AMUG 2017 in Chicago. See Part 1 here. There's so many great seminars and networking opportunities at AMUG, it was hard to narrow down this list! Hands-on work shop learning how to create patterns for investment and sand casting, and then actually pour and finish the metal part, was a real learning opportunity. It gave me a vivid understanding of the 3d printed application for potential customers in the Casting Industry. Hands-on work shop finishing PolyJet parts in vero clear gave me an appreciation for...
