How Stephanie Law Uses Custom Laser Cut Frames To Build An Unmistakable Brand

When you see a piece of art by Stephanie Law,
you know it’s exclusively hers. In a meld of organic patterns and familiar
archetypes, her paintings pose a question on the nature of perception and
beauty. It’s against this backdrop that the ephemeral guides and strange
creatures dance and beckon the viewer to follow through her various series.

She draws viewers in by interweaving texture,

NAM and Stratasys Seek Creators on Manufacturing Day

The Manufacturing Institute, the education and workforce partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, and Stratasys are joining forces to showcase the diverse career opportunities available in the manufacturing industry by engaging youth around the country, inspiring them and recruiting them to become the next generation of manufacturers through Manufacturing Day (MFG Day).

“The next frontier of manufacturing in the United States is upon us, and now, more than ever, we need the next generation of creators to join our workforce. We thank our generous sponsors, like Stratasys, for working alongside us to showcase what modern manufacturing really looks like in their own eyes through a MFG Day experience,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, who also serves as board chairman of The Manufacturing Institute.

As a State Presenting-Level sponsor of MFG Day in Minnesota, Stratasys is providing substantial support for the nation’s largest one-day celebration of manufacturing, where manufacturers across the country open their doors for students, parents and teachers, highlighting the diverse career opportunities in manufacturing.

“Manufacturing is a huge economic driver in Minnesota, employing more than 321,000 Minnesotans,” said Stratasys Americas President Rich Garrity. “As the world’s premier 3D printing company, we’re working with leading manufacturers every day to re-imagine how things are made. We want to help the manufacturing industry in our great state ensure it is ready for that future, and that means attracting the best and brightest talent to join our ranks. We are proud to support MFG Day, which showcases the diverse, high-paying careers our industry offers.”

“MFG Day has become the collective rallying cry of manufacturers preparing for the future by engaging with the workforce of tomorrow today,” said Manufacturing Institute Executive Director Carolyn Lee. “Our industry faces a workforce crisis, with manufacturers needing to fill 4.6 million jobs over the next decade. That’s why the Manufacturing Institute, with sponsors like Stratasys, works tirelessly to engage talented, creative, hard-working talent through initiatives like MFG Day.”

First held in 2012 and organized by its founder – the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International – MFG Day gives manufacturers the opportunity to address the skills gaps, connect with future generations, update the public perception of manufacturing and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the industry as a whole.

Want to learn more about MFG Day and the significant impact this event has across the nation? Visit the MFG Day site.

Then explore the power of Stratasys 3D Printing solutions to drive the new age in manufacturing.

Aerospace is on a 3D Printing Binge. Scott Sevcik Explains Why.

Scott Sevcik joined Stratasys five years ago and has been at the forefront of helping manufacturing – and aerospace in particular – to embrace 3D printing throughout the product lifecycle. Last month, he was named VP of the company’s aerospace business segment.

What’s one thing we don’t know about you?

I have the great distinction of coming from the same home town as SPAM – Austin, Minnesota.

The “meat” that transformed the world! Now you’re helping transform aerospace. How did your eight years at Lockheed Martin after college prepare you for your work at Stratasys?

Lockheed Martin is a fantastic company. The company culture balances pushing extreme innovation boundaries with the utmost insistence on safety and performance. One mantra that stuck with me is “test like you fly.” That’s the way the aerospace industry needs to work. You need to push boundaries and make major innovative steps forward, but risk must be managed and controlled because people’s lives often depend on mission success. So much of that comes down to the individuals making decisions.  Helping them have confidence that their risks are mitigated or controlled is key to helping them take those innovative steps forward.

And then you decided to go from industry giant to scrappy Stratasys?

Well actually, we had a family debate at Christmas in 2013 because there was a news story about a pizza chain planning to deliver pizza by drone. So our debate was whether we’d be eating drone-delivered pizza or 3D-printed pizza first. I sided with 3D-printed pizza, as I had recently used 3D printing to help accelerate a program schedule at work and was high on the value it offered. A few months later, my sister sent me a job posting for aerospace business development at Stratasys, basically as a joke. It was no joke to me: I was on the phone with a Stratasys recruiter two days later. It turned out to be a perfect role for me.  Stratasys was seeing growth in aerospace and wanted to hire from the industry to capitalize on the pull they were seeing. My role was to help Stratasys understand why aerospace was interested and what they needed, and help the industry understand what Stratasys could do for them. Going back to the family debate that put me on this path, I’d probably change my position now. Maybe the pizza won’t be 3D printed, but I think the drone, or at least parts of it, will be.

That growth in aerospace continues. What has made aerospace and 3DP such a great fit?

I see two factors. The first is the industry’s inclination toward innovation. Some look at aerospace and see a slow-moving industry that takes years to qualify a new technology and a decade or more to launch a new product. In fact, the entire industry has gone from an idea in a bike shop for a heavier-than-air-powered glider to rovers on Mars and 200 people on a single aisle aircraft taking off every 20 seconds somewhere in the world 24 hours a day, all in the span of a little more than 100 years. So, there’s these long development cycles, but each one takes a huge technological step forward. It’s the ultimate example of “go slow to go fast.” Because of the leaps they take, they tend to invest in the most promising revolutionary technologies. 

The other factor is quantity. The fastest-running aircraft manufacturing plants have a pace of 50-60 a month, compared to cars running in the thousands per month.  These lower quantities don’t get the cost savings you get in amortizing tooling costs across thousands or millions of parts.  As a result, you can often make tools faster or less expensively by 3D printing them. Or you can potentially eliminate the tool entirely by printing the part. And once you are able to print your parts, you can stock your spare part inventory digitally and wait to print the part you need rather than fill warehouses with spares that are invariably in the wrong place and in the wrong quantities. 

Do you see future 3D printing growth in aerospace in new areas?

I think there are still opportunities for significant growth even in areas that some in the aerospace industry have been implementing for years. For instance, we see some segments within the industry that extensively use 3D printing for factory floor tools, ranging from simple fixtures to highly complex composite layup molds. Yet meanwhile, we see organizations that haven’t even thought about printed tools yet. 

Of course the long term focus for many in the industry is the flight parts themselves. There are getting to be a lot of FDM parts flying, from A350s to the Atlas V rocket to NASA satellites, and other vehicles that we’re not even allowed to disclose, but it’s still early. We’ll see OEMs taking greater advantage of the freedom to design more elegant parts that are lighter weight and consolidate assemblies in ways that are only possible with additive manufacturing. We’ll see completion centers creating truly customized one-off parts for an aircraft interior. And MROs will move more spare parts towards digital inventory.

It must be fun to see how things have evolved since you started at Stratasys.

My first time at the Paris Air Show for Stratasys was in 2015. We had this huge announcement about Airbus flying more than a thousand printed parts on the first few A350s in order to meet their production schedule. I remember saying at that time that we’d know we were succeeding when a thousand parts was a non-story, but in 2015 it was incredibly novel to think that actual airplane parts were being 3D printed. Four years later, we are still making announcements about new adopters, like Diehl Aviation and Marshall, and new partnerships, like our extended agreement with Boom Supersonic, but the tone has changed. Stratasys is an aerospace supplier, not just a 3D printing company in the corner that had one big aerospace win. The highlight for me is how we have shifted into a more mainstream and accepted supplier in the industry.

What factors have contributed to that acceptance?  

Aerospace customers are looking for partners that can deliver mature and repeatable capability. They are also looking for partners that speak their language and understand the criticality and quality requirements of the aerospace industry. We frequently hear from our customers how many companies in this space just don’t get what it takes to put a part on a plane. They really value our transparency and willingness to share and collaborate. More than anything, though, they are looking for a partner that’s going to listen to them and accept guidance in shaping our future roadmap.

Finally, how are your own 3D printing skills going? Have you successfully 3D printed some things here in the office?

Absolutely. I’m a novice, but I’ve used both our easy-to-use GrabCAD Print as well as our highly controllable Insight software for the Fortus line. When I moved into a new office a while back, I found my door wouldn’t stay open. I fired up GrabCAD Print, and had a door stop off an F370 in our office before the end of the day.

Design Rules for AM

Little by little, companies are learning that it can be very different to design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). To make AM economical for production quantities, DfAM is usually necessary. As costs of the machines, materials, and post-processing are driven downward over time, this may change in some instances. For the foreseeable future, DfAM is not only useful, it’s a requirement.

When considering DfAM, we often think of using topology optimization, lattice structures, and other methods to reduce material and weight and potentially improve part functionality. Just as important are design rules and guidelines to reduce trial ‘n error among engineers and designers. This information usually comes from experience and tribal knowledge among very few at a company.

The previous guitar stand was designed by Olaf Diegel, an associate consultant and DfAM instructor at Wohlers Associates. The stand is cleverly designed to fold and unfold, as shown. The large hinge depicted at the left requires a surface gap of 0.4 mm (0.016 inch) for it to operate so that it is not too tight or lose. A smaller hinge, shown in the center, requires a gap of 0.3 mm (0.012 inch) because the rotating surface area is much less. Making the gap larger would result in a hinge that’s too lose.

Olaf has learned many rules and guidelines from his extensive experience with DfAM, AM, and post-processing parts. They often differ from process to process and material to material. Many of these methods of DfAM will be discussed at a special three-day DfAM course in Frisco, Colorado next month. If you’re transitioning to AM for production applications, you or your colleagues may want to attend this training. It could save your organization months or longer and help you determine if/when a part or assembly is a good candidate to produce by AM.
