The workshop essentially provide a fundamental understanding to the range of topics within additive manufacturing and advanced CAD domain, together with exploring to current state of research and development which widens the thinking of the participants and enables them to look at 3D Printing Technology with a broader perspective. The workshop will broadly cover 3D printing and advanced CAD for product development which have been maturing significantly over last decade and have now been identified by all major Aerospace, Automobile, Defense and Medical agencies, as key enabling technologies. Emerging engineers, research scholars and entrepreneurs who are inclined to venture into the new isle of Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing will be benefited with a wide wealth of information and guidance from basic to advanced level development of AM technologies from the world renowned expert in this area.

    NAFEMS is the International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community and it operates as an independent, not-for-profit association. The scope of its activities encompasses all simulation technology, including Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics. As new application areas and techniques constantly evolve, NAFEMS becomes involved to create awareness of new analysis methodologies, deliver appropriate education, training and simulate the adoption of best practices and effective use of technology by offering a platform for continuous professional development. NAFEMS and its members are involved in the application of many different types of engineering simulation covering both products and processes. Membership exceeds 1600 corporate members from over 60 different countries.


    This workshop is aimed at emerging engineers and entrepreneurs who wish to transform their ideas into product in quick time through additive manufacturing and especially for those companies which are looking for solutions that provide better, faster, cheaper ways of producing prototypes and manufacturing parts. The content of this programme is specially designed to deploy the knowledge on 3D Printing and it is open to both members and nonmembers of NAFEMS.
