Today’s digest of the latest 3D printing industry news contains updates from Volkswagen, Dassault Systèmes and Roboze. There is also an new opportunity for educators and students working in the area of advanced manufacturing.
The Science + Innovation Awards (SIA) is accepting nominations for two awards to be presented by Manufacturing USA. One award will honor educators who’ve demonstrated exceptional leadership and encouragement of their pupils, in order to improve manufacturing skills. The second award is for students, aged 13 or older, who have contributed to the advanced manufacturing community through new products, processes, or techniques.

A team from TWI Ltd and the Simulia brand of Dassault Systèmes has been named joint winners of an Additive Manufacturing Benchmark (AM Bench) Test Series.
US - National - Institute - Standards - Technology
Organised by the U.S. National Institute Standards and Technology (NIST), the AM Bench Test Series was set up to confront the challenges faced by those looking to harness AM. These challenges include distortion, residual stresses, and undesirable micro-structures.
The awards were given to groups which have contributed to the further improvement of AM benchmark tests. The two groups were awarded first place for ‘Best modeling results predicting the residual stresses within an as-built IN625 bridge structure’.

“We are delighted to have won this prestigious award with Dassault Systèmes for our joint numerical modelling work on the prediction of additive manufacturing distortions and residual stresses,” said Tyler London, team manager of TWI.
“THE NIST AM-BENCH SERIES IS REMINISCENT OF THE OLD BATELLE ROUND-ROBIN ON CRACK OPENING DISPLACEMENT AND THE MORE RECENT NET WELDING RESIDUAL STRESS ROUND-ROBIN, BOTH OF WHICH HAVE RESULTED IN SIGNIFICANT ENGINEERING ANALYSIS ADVANCES IN THEIR RESPECTIVE AREAS. THE AM-BENCH ALSO RAISED QUITE A FEW QUESTIONS ON CERTAIN ASPECTS OF AM MODELLING THAT...
