Workshop on “Design for Additive Manufacturing & Data Preparation for Metal Additive Manufacturing”

Bhartiya Skill Development University has organised a workshop in association with EOS on “Design for Additive Manufacturing and Data Preparation for Metal Additive Manufacturing”.
EOS is a global technology leader for 3D printing of metals and polymers and is an expert in holistic solutions in additive manufacturing. The company is based in Munich, Germany and has 30 years of experience in Additive Manufacturing. EOS provides services in part design and data generation for part building and post-processing.
The workshop is being held over a span of two days, wherein it began on 6th June and was conclude on 7th June. Various researchers, professionals and policy makers from educational Institutes, private and government sector, civil society joined the workshop. Apart from partaking in various activities, they discussed about the transformation and evolution of prototyping in manufacturing over the years.
The workshop started with an inaugural address by Dr. (Brig.) Surjit Singh Pabla, Vice Chancellor, BSDU, followed by technical sessions for participants.
BSDU has created its own Fabrication Laboratory ‘FabLab’ and has organised the workshop to nurture creativity and innovation. This workshop included sessions on laser sintering process, components, machine & accessories, Data Preparation demo using Magics, Supports, slicing, EOSPRINT, EOSTATE, Part screening methodology introduction, Discussion of Pain Point & AM Potential Value, and Screening & evaluation of parts.
Executives from prominent companies like Honda Cars, Phillips and Ploycab participated in the workshop. During different sessions they learned about the processes involved in 3D printing and rapid prototyping.
