Counterfeiting and Security…What’s Your Risk with 3D Printing? Brian shows you how to protect your IP.

Intellectual Property Issues in 3D Printing

With the increased attention that 3D printing has been receiving, it makes sense to understand the intellectual property issues that this technology raises. For example, what can an end user do with a 3D printer that might infringe another's IP rights? What can the owner of IP rights do to protect his property and prevent others from exploiting it without compensation? This presentation will address these topics and suggest strategies that purveyors of 3D printing technology should consider to protect their products.

How 3D Printing Changes Business Models, Business Processes, and Everything in Between (panel)

The growing accessibility of 3D printing is poised to revolutionize the entire product and service lifecycle in a variety of business and consumer domains. From the decentralization of production to the democratization of design, key business processes and business models in discrete manufacturing, consumer products, healthcare, automotive, construction, field service delivery and myriad other industries will need to be rethought and restructured as 3D printing begins its inexorable move into the mainstream. This panel will look at the key issues that need to be considered as design, production, distribution, and service change in the wake of the 3D printing revolution.
 
Panel: Benjamin J. Warlick, Associate Patent Attorney, Morris, Manning & Martin LLP; Travis Busbee, Co-founder and Materials Lead, Voxel8; Nick Kloski, Co-founder, HoneyPoint3D; Sandra Madrigal, CEO, ProtoCafe; Brian Quan, Managing Director, Tiertime

Are you ready for the opportunities?  Are you prepared for the challenge? Prabhjot gets you ready for both.

Additive Manufacturing for Industrial Growth — Transformational Opportunities and Challenges

Additive manufacturing, including 3D printing, presents transformational opportunities for industrial companies to drive innovation through new designs and services, faster prototyping and manufacturing, distributed networks, and new ecosystems. While companies are beginning to take advantage of this, new challenges must also be addressed. These include the need for new and more robust control systems, feedback loops, inspection and sensor technologies, and stronger integration of software for both design and manufacturing. In this talk, he will discuss these opportunities and challenges; a true convergence of the digital and physical worlds.
 

Terry Yoo

Computer Scientist and Head, 3D Informatics Group
National Institutes of Health

How is 3D Printing impacting the biomedical and healthcare industries? What are the new directions in visualization?  Are they making a difference?

3D Printing for Biomedical Research, Education, and Discovery

While additive methods promise to revolutionize manufacturing by accelerating the delivery of individual custom production and enabling designs that have been impossible heretofore using convention tools, 3D printing also offers new horizons for visualization and outreach to promote education and discovery. This talk will explore some uses of 3D printing in the biomedical sciences, from molecular biology and high resolution 3D electron microscopy to the evaluation of computer aided diagnosis systems for cancer screening. The discussion will foreshadow how the same qualities of 3D printing that inject innovation into manufacturing will profit scientific exploration.
 

Cliff Waldman

Director of Economic Studies
Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation

Can the US be competitive?  Will there be a new generation of entrepreneurs? Cliff talks about how 3D Printing can be the driver for both.

3D Printing as a Driver of New Regional Economies

This discussion places the 3D phenomenon in the context of U.S. efforts to build competitive manufacturing clusters that leverage unique strengths of regional economies. Cliff offers his thoughts on the role that states and regional authorities should play in facilitating the use of 3D and other new technologies as well as in investing for continued technological innovation. He also addresses how 3D might create manufacturing entrepreneurship in rural areas, a concern amid rapid urbanization.

How Can Businesses Manage Risk While Seizing the Opportunity?

The allure of 3D printing to businesses includes faster innovation, increased speed to market, and reduced costs. When 3D printing reaches cost parity with existing manufacturing methods, executives will pour millions, if not billions, into the technology. What they need to know is that the benefits of 3D printing come at a price – all of their trade secrets that are now hard to acquire, become nicely encoded into digital files. Businesses will need to protect these files like their future depends on it.
