Flam3D is Media Partner of 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference, which will take place on May 24, 2016, in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Ernst-Jan Louwers will guide you through legal swamps of 3D printing and additive manufacturing. To enable businesses and platforms to operate responsibly, he will share practical tips on intellectual property, new forms of licensing in open design, consequences of changing supply chains, warranty and liability issues. His key message will be: “Be aware of pitfalls but don’t let legal challenges scare you off.”
In addition, he will present the services of the recently established 3D Clearing House foundation.

A metal 3D printer is just like a CNC milling machine – a tool that executes what it is instructed to do. Thus, the only step in the process affecting the quality of the final printed product is the design and the engineering. Therefore it is extremely important to understand and respect the technologies limitations while making a design. The presentation will highlight the design rules for metal AM and more important, the reason behind it. This is the only way to fully understand and utilize the different design rules in the right way.
Cloud-based solutions can enable fast and secure communication of information, including complex 3D data. Let’s consider how work processes and communication streams can be improved by finding common platforms for sharing 3D information.

With findings that could have been taken from the pages of a spy novel, researchers at the University of California, Irvine have demonstrated that they can purloin intellectual property by recording and processing sounds emitted by a 3-D printer.

Rice University bioengineering researchers have modified a commercial-grade CO2 laser cutter to create OpenSLS, an open-source, selective laser sintering platform that can print intricate 3-D objects from powdered plastics and biomaterials. The system costs at least 40 times less than its commercial counterparts and allows researchers to work with their own specialized powdered materials.
