Speaker: Joshua Parker, Proto labs - DMLS Technician

Title: A Deep Dive into Metal 3D Printing​

Abstract:  Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is an emerging additive manufacturing technology that has great potential to change the way metal parts are manufactured.  DMLS is ideal when trying to achieve complex geometries, lightweight metal parts, or reduced components. This presentation compares flawed versus optimized geometry, discusses part design considerations, and explores secondary operation options to keep in mind when designing for DMLS.

Bio:  Joshua Parker is a DMLS Technician for Protolabs, specializing in metal 3D printing for both prototypes and with a focus on production ready parts. Parker regularly consults with designers and engineers to deliver their requests and improve part manufacturability, supporting a range of industries including medical, consumer products, aerospace, and automotive.
