AM Hub has secured exclusive access to the newly launched Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence in Mount Waverley. Come and learn about the latest technology in 3D printing with EVOK3D & GoProto.

At this seminar you’ll learn about HP’s game changing multi jet technology for production with polymers and metals. Also hear from local orthotics manufacturing business Footwork on their CAD CAM journey over the last 10 years. Founded in 1993 Footwork is exporting market leading products across the world, and currently transforming their industry by adopting HP Multi Jet Fusion technology in their day to day operations.

The seminar also includes a tour of the newly launched GoProto facility at the AM Centre of Excellence. GoProto is a global group that has expanded rapidly by exploiting the advantages the HP MJF technology, providing prototyping and contract manufacturing services.

Find out how these companies are adopting AM in their value chain, transforming their industries and building a competitive advantage.

Registration includes seminar, tour, networking and canapes/drinks.

Attendance is subject to approval by Evok3D.

Hosted by:


Led by AMTIL, and generously supported by the Victorian Government, the Additive Manufacturing Hub has been established to grow and develop Additive Manufacturing capability.

Design For Additive Manufacturing @ Advanced Manufacturing Precinct RMIT University
Dec 5 @ 9:00 am – Dec 7 @ 5:00 pm

You are invited to attend a special three-day course on design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). Topics covered in the training include the consolidation of many parts into one and methods to reduce material and weight, such as topology optimization and lattice/mesh structures. It includes best practices and a wealth of DfAM guidelines. Participants will gain valuable hands-on experience by designing real parts and building them on industrial AM equipment.

Benefits of DfAM 
The images show a hydraulic manifold for Atlas Copco mining equipment. The top version is a conventionally machined manifold with 12 nozzles that must be installed. The bottom version was redesigned for and produced by additive manufacturing. The AM version reduced weight by 91% and consolidated 13 parts into one, resulting in lower assembly cost, less weight and scrap, and the elimination of potential leakage points. Learn how to design these and many other types of parts in this special DfAM course.

You will…
• Become familiar with DfAM guidelines and best practices
• Design, redesign, and optimize products
• Use your favorite design software (if you are a CAD user)
• Gain experience with best-in-class DfAM software such as Inspire from solidThinking and the lattice-structure capabilities in Magics from Materialise

Who should attend…
The DfAM course is targeted at designers, engineers, and managers wanting to learn how to design parts that fully benefit from additive manufacturing. It is ideal for those involved in aerospace, medical, motor sports, energy/power, industrial machinery, automotive, and consumer products.
