evok3d Hosts Manufacturing the Future NOW seminars

On August 11 and 13, evok3d were proud to host our guests at the Nissan Motorsport headquarters as part of the 3D Systems Manufacturing the Future NOW seminar series.

After guests were welcomed with coffee and breakfast came our presentation where we covered some of the 3D printing technologies across various industries such as medical, dental, jewelry, defense, aerospace and motorsport. We showed many real world applications where 3D printing has been used to enable these industries to reduce costs, be first to market, create personalised and bespoke items and solve previously unsolvable problems.

Participants then enjoyed a personal tour of the facilities which allowed our visitors to see how 3D printing has now become and essential part of a high tech manufacturing facility, complementing traditional manufacturing capabilities such as CNC machining and composite part production.

As a refresher for attendees and for the benefit of those unable to join us we have published below the slides from the presentation.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject in the comment section below. If you have any questions about how 3D printing can work for your business please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Is 3D Printing Tough Enough for Track Duty? Nissan Motorsport and evok3d know it is!

Off the back of our hugely successful Manufacturing the Future: 3D Printing 2.0 seminars held recently, 3D Systems asked us to present to a global audience through their webinar platform and we were happy to oblige.

Nissan Motorsports runs several cars in the Australian V8 Supercar Championship, the premier motorsport category in Australasia and one of Australia’s biggest sports. The team partnered with Melbourne-based evok3d to use 3D Systems printers to manufacture parts for their heavily modified Nissan Altimas, saving them the time and expense of making tooling to make parts.

Nismo 3D prints the specialized ducting necessary to keep their drivers cool, which is critical with interior temperatures reaching 50° C (122° F). To print these parts, they’re using the ProJet 3510 with VisiJet M3 Black material, which they have found performs as well as injection-molded ducting.

But that’s not all — they’re using 3D printing to make prototypes as well as rapid tooling for parts that can’t be directly 3D printed, such as carbon fiber components.

Join Perry Kapper, Chief Designer at Nissan Motorsports, and Joe Carmody, Managing Director of evok3d, as they explain how they’re working with 3D Systems to Manufacture The Future.

 

evok3d hosts Manufacturing the Future: 3D Printing 2.0 seminars

On September 30 and Oct 1, evok3d were proud to host our guests at the Nissan Motorsport headquarters as part of the 3D Systems Manufacturing the Future: 3d Printing 2.0 seminar series.

Participants were welcomed with coffee and breakfast before our presentation where we outlined some of the technologies that demonstrate the ‘coming of age’ of 3D printing. We showed some real world applications where 3D printing has been used, not only prototyping and conceptual communication, but fit and function testing through to end use parts. These applications were demonstrated by some of the parts produced for and being used in the Nissan V8 Supercars, all produced on our in house professional 3D printing machines.

This was followed by a personal tour of the facilities which allowed our visitors to see how 3D printing has now become and essential part of a working facility, complementing traditional manufacturing techniques such as CNC machining and composite mold making. Our friends at 3D Printing Today also made a short video with some pictures from the event.

As a refresher for attendees and for the benefit of those unable to join us we have published below the slides from the presentation.
