Integrating Digital Manufacturing

Event #: 3DP336

Additive Manufacturing and 3D Scanning are changing how things get made. However, these technologies are often overlooked as a critical part of the product development and manufacturing processes. Join us for this seminar as we explore the design freedom of additive manufacturing solutions throughout the product development process of mega-car manufacturer Koenigsegg. Learn how this Swedish car company challenged the industry by utilizing 3D printing and 3D scanning.

Not in the Automotive Industry? No problem, the content is presented in way so that it is applicable to a variety of industries. We’ll follow the development life cycle from digitizing designs with 3D scanning, 3D printing prototypes for design intent, validating final production parts, to creating customized color prints for aesthetic design.

At the end of this seminar, attendees will walk away with the knowledge to help their companies design and manufacture better products while getting to market faster.

Register for this seminar as we explore the product development process through this real-world example

Welcome and Introductions

9:15am – 9:45pm

Creaform Reverse Engineering and Prototyping

Convert your hand modeled geometry into more versatile CAD data or extract data from the environment to optimize your parts to fit. See how this application was utilized by a car manufacture in Sweden.

9:45am – 10:15am

Prototyping with Large Parts and Versatile Materials

For a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio, Stratasys’s Carbon fiber material is a perfect fit for car manufacture Koenigsegg. In today’s manufacturing, prototyping goes beyond ABS Plastic. Stratasys allows the capabilities to use a large range of materials to make fast prototype parts or durable Jigs and fixtures to be used in real world conditions.

10:15am – 10:45am

Creaform Inspection for Prototyping and Production

Having quick and reliable measurements on the production floor alleviates bottle necks in the QC lab. Creaform scanners allow for fast accurate measurements on small to large parts and assemblies. Come see how Koenigsegg was able to reduce time and part rejection by 75%.

10:45am – 11:30am

Multi-Material and Full Color Prototypes with the J750/J735

Custom designers such as Koenigsegg, have the need to prototype full color mock-ups. Prototyping a product that requires multiple materials or full color graphics was traditionally the hardest step in the product design process. Utilizing Stratasys J750 and J735 manufactures are now able to deliver unrivaled aesthetic performance including true, full-color capability with texture mapping and color gradients.

11:30am – 11:45am

Prototyping and Low Volume Production with Desktop Metal’s new Studio System

When your applications demand the highest level of performance for real world, real duty jobs, you need to go metal. In this presentation we’ll explore the engineering behind Desktop Metal’s new Studio System as well as check out some metal printing applications. We’ll see how Koenigsegg has utilized metal additive to create a turbocharger design previously not possible when confined to traditional manufacturing methods.

11:45am – 12:00pm Q&A
12:00pm – 1:00pm
