The EnvisionTEC Xede 3SP 3D printer
Now in its 25th year, this week (June 9th-12th) at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan, RAPID is once again informing the foremost innovators and businesses in the industry of the latest in additive manufacturing and 3D technologies, which is why Envisiontec's presence there extends beyond its booth and onto the stage, with many influential speakers at the 2014 event using Envisiontec technology in their ground-breaking work.
Today (June 10th), David Dean, PhD at The Ohio State University, will be holding his presentation on utilising his Perfactory Series printer for the additive manufacturing of surgical guides and composite implants. His research interests include craniofacial and bone regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, computer-aided implant design, as well as additive manufacturing. Dean's talk will run from 15:00-15:25 local time in the Medical and Dental Applications track.
At 16:00 local time in the Additive Manufacturing Applications conference track, Scott Wetterschneider of digital illustration, character design and toy-making business Shinbone Creative will take to the stage, speaking on behalf of Morpheus Prototypes, which owns Envisiontev Xede 3DP and Perfactory Micro 3D printers. Wetterschneider's talk will cover the subject of transforming concepts into physical models using 3D printing.
At 16:00-16:25 local time today, Ramille Shah, PhD at Northwestern University, will be presenting the topic of hyperealastic osteogenic bone substitute scaffolds enabled through 3D printing in the Materials for Additive Manufacturing Applications conference track. Shah, who has a 3D Bioplotter, works in the field of 3D-printable materials development and characterisation.
Finally, Jason Lopes kicks off tomorrow's keynote presentations. The Legacy Effects Lead Systems Engineer, who owns a Perfactory Series 3D printer will be discussing how 3D scanning and 3D printing are being used to make some of the biggest blockbusters of recent years, including Iron Man, Hunger Games and Pacific Rim.
