October 1 11:00 - 12:00 3D Printing: A Bridge Between Engineers and Innovation? In the near future 3D printing will have a marked effect on how we order, design, and manufacture products. They will have a major Impact not just on products, but on our society, and how we live and do business. Besides its obvious technological and manufacturing benefits, 3D printing also has the potential to unleash innovation in an unprecedented manner. Though there is much research on the engineering and technical aspects of 3D printing, some of this research can almost be seen as constraining innovation, rather than encouraging it. Perhaps it is time to start looking beyond the engineering aspects of 3D printing, and look at how we can use it to become more creative? This presentation examines where 3D Printing technologies are from the point of view of stimulating and exploiting innovation, and how engineers should be encouraged to work more closely with artists and other innovators from outside the sphere of engineering in order to broaden their innovative potential.

October 1 11:00 - 12:00 Metal Printing in the Aerospace Industry Metal printing has come as a boon to the aerospace industry. The uniqueness of the aerospace industry is such that it requires precision components, which are highly complex in nature but need to be manufactured in small volumes. The recent advancements in the field of metal printing, and the subsequent willingness to adapt this technology by various aerospace companies around the world has been nothing short of manufacturing transformation. Over the last few years, metal printed aerospace components have been through rigorous testing, the results have not only been promising but have made the end users take bolder steps in trying newer & more complex components. In many cases the material properties of additive manufactured components is superior to those manufactured under conventional processes. The discussion will aim to bring out the recent developments in this space, the challenges ahead and disclosing a few case studies in the field of metal printing with specific focus on aerospace.

October 1 15:00 - 15:45 3D Printing: IP and the Law Understanding the intellectual property issues associated with additive manufacturing is a key component to the success of any business utilizing this technology. Despite the fact that key patents have expired, patent applications have surged in the last ten years, covering many improvements to this technology. For example, the U.S. Patent Office held a “summit” on additive manufacturing earlier this year and announced the formation of a special art unit to examine patent applications concerning additive manufacturing. Indeed, in the last ten years over 3000 U.S. patents have issued in this space. This session will discuss various techniques for protecting intellectual property in additive manufacturing.

October 1 15:00 - 15:45 3D Printing and Generative Design 3D printing offers us the ability to produce objects previously impossible with traditional manufacturing. However, does this make traditional modes of fabrication and manufacturing obsolete? Clement's research investigates this point of difference that additive manufacturing and digital fabrication has over other fabrication techniques. Through the subjects of generative design and mass customisation, he would share about his experience as a designer working with digital fabrication, and how this disrupts the conventional practice of design, as well as the product experiences and offerings for consumers.

October 2 11:00 - 12:00 3D Printing a Healthy World This session will include a detailed market analysis and forecast of Additive Manufacturing & 3D printing within the global healthcare sector. Without doubt, the medical sector represents by far the largest application of Additive Manufactured & 3D printed parts within the world today. From customized dental aligners and hearing aids, through to hip implants and surgical guides, AM/3DP is used to manufacture literarily millions of medical related parts each year. In this presentation, Dr Phil Reeves of international Additive Manufacturing & 3D printing consultancy Econolyst will provide a detailed analysis of AM/3DP adoption within the medical sector. Phil will look at the current medical AM/3DP eco-system, and discuss where the technology is being used and why. He will look at the current penetration of AM/3DP within different medical verticals, mapping penetration against current market opportunity in order to gauge the future economic value of AM/3DP within the important sector. Phil will then discuss the opportunity space that exists for different AM/3DP technologies and materials, before identifying those companies with the greatest opportunity for sustained growth. Finally, Phil will look at the current and future impact of consumer & prosumer 3D printing systems within the medical sector, and how these technologies could empower localized healthcare, small business innovation and cause potential disruption within the established healthcare supply chain. Phil’s presentation will be based on the findings of a new global industry report, due for publication in October 2013, which evaluates the future market opportunity for AM/3DP within the global healthcare sector.

October 2 14:00 - 15:00 Medical Image Based Engineering – Orthopaedic Application Surgeons are experts at making the most of conventional 2D image data to prepare for their complex procedures. However, even the best planners can struggle with limited information that is available in 2D images and with the inability to try out multiple approaches before entering the OR. Surgeons using 2D images to diagnose and treat complex reconstructive bone procedures know how frustrating it can be to wait until the first incision is made to get the full picture of the patient’s pathology. Fortunately, 3D virtual surgical planning is available to remove many of the hurdles involved in determining the best plan and transferring it to reality. This presentation outlines the use of the 3D virtual surgical planning and development patient specific guides to improve the surgical accuracy and outcomes of corrective surgery for malunion deformity of the forearm. This technology involves the use of CT Scan imaging and turning the patient’s CT data into virtual surgical plans, patient-specific cut and drill guides, and physical models of the patient’s anatomy. The latter part of the technology involves the use of 3D printing to develop the patient’s physical bone models, cut and drill guides.
