3DPOD Episode 93: Bound Metal 3D Printing with Mantle CEO Ted Sorom
46:12
Ted Sorom, CEO and co-founder of Mantle, is looking to revolutionize metal 3D printing. Mantle has a paste extrusion method that features a post-machining step to mill unfinished parts and achieve better results. The paste is unique in that results in parts that harder than green components made using metal binder jet, which are likely to collapse under their own weight. Mantle's parts can then be machined, making them ideally suited for end use. Less finishing, less post-processing, fewer supports, better surface quality, and lower costs could be a result. Rather than present its technology as the end-all-be-all of all metal 3D printing, Mantle is, for now, targeting tooling alone. This tight focus accelerates the firm's go-to market. This was really an interesting chat and we hope that you enjoy it.

3DPOD Episode 81: Hybrid Manufacturing with Dr. Jason Jones, CEO Hybrid-AM
44:25
Dr. Jason Jones was an AM researcher on a project that expanded in scope and got very complicated. Miraculously it resulted in a company called Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies. This firm makes print heads and equipment that turns CNC machines into DED machines. The company's machines are used to make parts, repair parts and add new material to older parts. They also have inspection heads to enable parts to be build right and checked the first time. I really think that Hybrid is an amazing combination of Additive and CNC and criminally underused. Jason gave us a wonderful tour of his companies advantages and the specific advantages of 3D printing and subtractive manufacturing in one machine. Really worth your time!

3DPOD Episode 76: 3D Printing File Formats with 3MF Executive Director Luis Baldez
41:27
Luis Baldez is Senior Manager of Market Development for HP, but he's also the Executive Director of the 3MF Consortium. 3MF is trying to get the 3D printing industry to ditch the much maligned STL file format for something better. The team wants to establish .3MF as a new standard to get more accurate files that can convey more information. If we want to produce colorful or gradient parts, or multiple materials in a single part, then we will need better ways of describing them. STL also doesn't work well for super complex lattices and other new geometries. So, Luis and his team are going to try to help us transition. But, how to do this? Who is 3MF? And what are they doing? These are all topics that you can learn from our podcast.

3DPOD Episode 67: Remote Print Monitoring with The Spaghetti Detective’s Kenneth Jiang
44:24
Kenneth Jiang's The Spaghetti Detective uses machine learning and vision to analyze your FDM prints. Relying on Octoprint, the tool looks at your 3D printer to determine whether or not it is printing spaghetti. We manage to belatedly ask Kenneth what causes spaghetti, but most of the podcast is us brainstorming with Kenneth about all of the types of things his tool can do. Machine learning and machine vision will play an important part in 3D printing, but we have very few actual practical working examples. This is one of those few and we find out all about it, as well as Kenneth's own story, in this podcast.

3DPOD Episode 65: 3D Scanning at the U.S. Space Force with Major Travis Tubbs
42:45
This time on the 3DPOD, we get to chat with Major Travis Tubbs of the U.S. Space Force. Surprisingly, a lot of the conversation was about plants, but we also discussed satellites, farming from space, farming in space, terraforming planets, 3D scanning plants, and a lot more. We were also super curious about the brand new U.S. Space Force. We asked questions about what it's like working there and being part of such a new service. Due to Major Tubbs's extensive research, we get to bounce all over the place speaking to him about topics relevant to 3D printing. The result of this is a fun and informative conversation about many things that you may not expect to think about.

3DPOD Episode 63: Manufacturing in Space with Douglas Hofmann, Principal Scientist, NASA JPL
44:13
In this episode, Max and I fall all over ourselves to ask questions of Douglas Hofmann, Principal Scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). We also listen intently as Doug explains the ins and outs of bulk metallic glasses (aka "amorphous metals") and why one would use these materials. With high wear and chemical resistance amorphous metals can be used for gearboxes that do not require lubrication, handy if you're on Mars and the nearest Jiffy Lube is 319 million kilometers away. We also get to understand a bit more about what it is that JPL does and how it uses 3D printing to make parts for its vehicles and projects. Max and I could scarcely contain our excitement with this episode and we hope that you enjoy it also. By the way, to learn more about how 3D printing is used for space programs, check out 3DPrint.com's Space Zone.

3DPOD Episode 62: Hydraulics 3D Printing with Marcus Pont, Domin CEO
48:36
I'm unabashedly a Domin fanboy. The UK-based company makes high-performance hydraulic valves in Poland using powder bed fusion. These optimized products are high value and outperform traditionally manufactured systems in many metrics. It seems that the valve world is ripe for digitization and may forever be changed via 3D printing. Domin CEO Marcus Pont shimmers with ambition and has a lot of wise and insightful things to say on this podcast. We cover numerous subjects and I think that there are deep insights to be had in how to engineer for value and how to make breakthrough end-use parts. I was on a kind of hazy 3D printing high when this episode ended—give it a listen.

3DPOD Episode 61: Cold Spray Metal Printing with Byron Kennedy, SPEE3D CEO
41:59
Byron Kennedy is the CEO of SPEE3D, an Australian firm that develops cold spray metal 3D printing. After a successful exit in powertrain components, he and his business partner Steven Camilleri were exploring 3D printing and new technologies. They found an existing 30-year-old technology, cold spray, and decided to make it additive. The result is a machine capable of producing 30 tonnes of metal parts a year at extremely low-cost points per part. Byron talks us through the technology and applications. He speaks of opportunities in marine and defense with large, low-cost components that are out of bounds for most of the rest of our industry. The boys down under have really turned the cold spray process on its head, but have also upended the economics of 3D printing. Byron gives us a lot of engineering insight related to how the process was designed and how they're finding applications for their technology. It was a real eye-opener for Max and me and really let us think much much bigger about additive than we did before.

3DPOD Episode 60: AM Metal Powder Production with MolyWorks CEO Chris Eonta
37:34
This episode is a blast, as we descend into the mayhem that was the early days of MolyWorks. A team that tries to make a gas atomizer on a founder's lawn inside a shipping container and survives is a lucky one indeed. And now, years later, Chris Eonta's company is more mature and shipping its Greyhound containerized atomization facilities worldwide. These can turn scrap into low-cost, high-performance metal powders for powder bed fusion. You can also use them to recycle scrap or to turn failed prints and supports into new powder. I really feel that Molyworks is overlooked and think that they could have a profound impact on making 3D printing more sustainable and moving it into austere areas. We hope you enjoy this episode.

3DPOD Episode 58: Ceramics 3D Printing Deep Dive with Guillaume de Calan, Nanoe CEO
36:59
Technical ceramics keep on working when a lot of other materials fail. If a part needs to be in a very hot or very chemically abrasive environment, or if you need incredibly high abrasion resistance, then technical ceramics will continue to work where polymers and metals would have long since failed. In a lot of applications, they're lighter, as well, and have great properties for very specific uses. But, of all the materials, technical ceramics are the bastard stepchildren of the materials world. Misunderstood and unloved they are underutilized. One person who wishes to change this is Guillaume de Calan of Nanoe. Nanoe makes ceramic filaments for desktop machines and a number of other ceramics besides. Max and I were charmed by Guillaume's deep knowledge of ceramics and the way he qualifies everything he says and is very realistic. We talk with Guillaume about sintering, binder jet, the use of desktop 3D printers for print ceramic parts, and many of the issues, as well as opportunities, with ceramics as well. At the end of it all, I think that this 3DPOD can really help you learn a lot more about ceramic materials and processes that could help you solve your problems.

3DPOD Episode 57: Prosthetics & Orthotics with Brent Wright (EastPoint Prosthetics & LifeNabled)
44:45
Brent Wright is a prosthetist and orthotist who uses 3D printing to help people regain function in their lives. Max and I both found talking to him to be super inspiring. Brent works for EastPoint Prosthetics & LifeNabled, as well as Additive America. In this wide-ranging conversation, we talk about HP Multi Jet Fusion, prosthetics sockets, wear, posterior cruciate ligaments, VarioShore TPU 3D printing filament, how to make an orthotic, and how to become a prosthetist. Needless to say, Max and I were both taken by the extremely motivating and wonderful work that Brent does. It's also a 3D printing application that makes useful parts that are very valuable to patients. Check out the training, prosthetics, and work that Brent does here. $70 gets someone a knee.

3DPOD Episode 56: Post Processing with DyeMansion Head of Marketing, Pia Harlaß
35:58
Pia Harlaß is the Head of Global Marketing & Corporate Communications for DyeMansion, a leading post-finishing company that offers machines that can depowder, create a uniform surface texture, and then color powder bed fusion parts. Now expanding beyond sintered components, the company is a key enabler in turning parts into products. I'm following the post-processing industry very closely because they're a bellwether for our overall health. Anyone can buy a printer to liven up their innovation lab, but only those doing manufacturing will invest in post-processing equipment. Since so much of the cost of a 3D printed part is in labor, any gains made by DyeMansion and its peers will mean savings for all of us and more manufacturing opportunities. Between the promises of manufacturing with 3D printing stands a wall of costs and this wall is being brought down by DyeMansion and others. We really loved hearing from Pia about just how different the brash upstart DyeMansion is and how it has been to work at the company. We hope you'll like this episode, as well!

3DPOD Episode 55: Ethan Escowitz, Arris Founder & CEO
47:05
Ethan Escowitz, whom we interviewed here, co-founded Arris, which hopes to revolutionize the world of composites. By combining molding and 3D printing, his company's innovative technology can make parts with good surface finish almost automatically. It can also lay down continuous fiber in different compositions or concentrations across the part. This allows the company to reinforce parts or change properties of the part at certain areas, for example, modifying radio frequency properties or altering torsion in a determined way. The company hopes that it can play a role in drones, sports gear, cars, consumer electronics, and beyond. Arris is a really exciting startup with a lot of potential and we really enjoyed speaking with Ethan about the possibilities.

3DPOD Episode 53: Benny Buller, VELO3D Founder and CEO
42:02
Today, Max and I got to chat to Benny Buller, CEO of VELO3D. His company is shaking up the metal powder bed fusion market and Benny lets us in on the company's strategy, how VELO3D's technology works, and his vision on running and growing a business. Benny tells us about how he got to where he is today, as well. Benny also discloses that he wants VELO3D to be a public company. While he did not comment on the current rumors that he is in talks to merge with Barry Sternlicht’s Jaws Spitfire Acquisition Corp to get listed, we have reached out to VELO3D for a comment about the potential SPAC meger. He believes in direct communication and honesty. He additionally discusses the company's focus on relatively few part families and industries. The firm wants to reach customers that could potentially buy many machines from it. This kind of thinking is very different from other players in the market and I love this approach to the industry. It's a refreshing podcast with a lot of insight, especially for those who wish to grow their own businesses.
Mar 13, 2021
3DPOD Episode 52: Sumeet Jain, Arkema Senior Director of 3D Printing Worldwide
43:03
Sumeet Jain is the Senior Director of 3D Printing Worldwide for Arkema. Previously Sumeet headed up Sartomer, the company's DLP and SLA resin brand, for seven years. Sumeet discusses with us how they make custom resins for applications and customers. Now, he's also responsible for their sintering powders, including the bio-based Rilsan polyamide 11, Kepstan PEKK, and Kynar PVDF, among other materials. We discuss Arkema's approach to the industry, its go-to-market strategy, and how 3D printing fits into the overall Arkema picture. We also talk about the materials themselves, such as PEKK and PVDF, as well as the company's PMMA for FDM, which us initially perplexing for us. We really loved having Sumeet on the 3DPOD and enjoyed his clear explanations and open approach to 3D printing. We hope you do to.

3DPOD Episode 51: 3D Printing Materials Deep Dive with 3Degrees Founder Mike Vasquez
41:54
After studying at Loughborough and MIT he worked on making snowboard components for Burton, Mike Vasquez started 3Degrees. There, he's not only a 3D printing consultant but also has his own podcast. So, as a first for us, we're doing a collab where you and the 3Degrees audience will be able to listen to our joint show. Ignore the MIT degrees and the vast knowledge, as well as Mike's silky smooth voice, please, and stick to our program! Max and I again enjoyed this discussion and Mike's vision on materials, polymers, and when and where 3D printing is useful. Mike is focusing on enabling small-to-medium businesses to tackle additive head-on in implementation and production. This is a super valuable area for him to leverage his knowledge. He has also launched Trace, an application to help companies track and implement quality management systems for additive.

3DPOD Episode 50: DARPA and More with Ken Church, nScrypt CEO
49:10
I'm a huge nScrypt fan and love the firm's technologies. The way they've defined their "line in a tool" approach to additive is really inspiring to me. With nScrypt machines, you can print electronics, polymers, micro dispense, mill and aerosol jet, all in one machine. The company is the only one that is working on combining bioprinting and electronics and is far ahead of anyone else in electronics 3D printing, as well. At the same time it leads in high-tech, rugged printers that can be used in austere environments and has worked on printers for use on board the International Space Station. I love the capabilities of nScrypt's machines and think that they are criminally unknown. Talking with the CEO of nScrypt, Ken Church, was a blast. We discussed bioprinting from a realistic standpoint, as well as electronics 3D printing and the future of our industry. Ken's a straight shooter and is as knowledgeable as he is opinionated, so you'll learn a lot from him, I'm sure. We also surprisingly talked a while about the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), with nScrypt having been partially funded by them. Unsurprisingly, Max and I had a little to say about that, as well. This would be a great episode to give a listen to, especially if you're thinking of applying for DARPA funding or have something that could help them. But, if you just want to be completely jazzed out about our technology and the possibilities, well then you should listen, too.

3DPOD Episode 49: Bioprinting with CELLINK Founder Dr. Hector Martinez
44:02
On this episode of the 3DPOD, we go into bioprinting. With us is Hector Martinez, the CTO and a co-founder of CELLINK (CLNK-B.ST). CELLINK is a bioprinting rocket ship which took off only a few years ago. A small passionate team began selling bioinks and have since grown the company into a leader in bioprinting. CELLINK is publicly traded and has a wide array of printers from the affordable to complex machines and from extrusion to DLP and holographic machines, as well. Martinez tells us about the foundation of CELLINK and the initial teams. He also has sage advice about how to know when your co-founders are the right partners for you. He talks to us as well about the near-term opportunities in bioprinting, what he expects from the market and where he expects interesting things to happen. If you are looking to explore bioprinting or are in the industry, this is a must-listen. I'd also recommend it to entrepreneurs and people with entrepreneurial spirits. You'll walk away jazzed and informed from this one.

The affable and knowledgeable Dr. Ian Gibson is a professor of Design Engineering at the University of Twente, as well as the Scientific Director of the Fraunhofer Project Centre there. Dr. Gibson has written many papers on various areas in 3D printing across a long and deep additive career. He's also a co-author of the 3D printing textbook Additive Manufacturing Technologies. Working in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore, he truly has a global perspective on additive technologies. From concrete printing to medical, metals, and polymers, he has an objective and learned view of many parts of the industry. He's careful in what he says and how he says it and is wise in our 3D printed world. Max and I loved this, of course, and we went on a meandering journey past binder jet, house printing, implants and much more besides. We really hope that you like this talk.
Jan 28, 2021
3DPOD Episode 47: Metal Powders Deep Dive with Carpenter Additive’s Ben Ferrar
41:49
An often little understood key element of the 3D printing equation is powder. Powdered metal is the material in powder bed fusion and binder jet systems. We write, read, and hear a lot about machines and parts, but not often do we learn much about powder itself. One man who can teach us a lot about it is Carpenter Additive's Ben Ferrar. Carpenter (NYSE: CRS) is the Medical/Dental Sponsor for 3DPrint.com's upcoming Additive Manufacturing Strategies summit, taking place February 9th and 10th. Ben is very knowledgeable about powder and in this episode walks us through what can go wrong, what makes a good powder, why storage is important, and tells us some new material developments. Carpenter Additive is one of the largest 3D printing powder providers and has a wide range of materials on offer. We discuss the most notable of these. The omnipresent Ti-64, which was once the end-all-be-all of materials is now being complemented by many materials that are newer to additive. Ben is really great at explaining things in a measured tone, so it was a treat to get to talk to him about the powder side of our business. We really hope that you like this episode! Ben Ferrar will be speaking at 3DPrint.com’s upcoming AMS online industry summit (Feb 9-10, 2021). Register here.
Jan 21, 2021
3DPOD Episode 46: Engineering CAD with nTopology CEO Brad Rothenberg
48:16
Max and I had a really great time talking to nTopology CEO Brad Rothenberg. Brad started nTopology as a series of tools for creating lattices, but it became much more than that with a new way of modeling and simulating using signed distance functions to form an equation describing a shape. Also called volumetric modeling or implicit modeling, this technique makes shapes easy to describe and modify. This compares to the  the cumbersome way through which STLs describe all the winding triangles in large files that take ages to render or modify. This is a new path to making and describing geometry. By not having to update or keep track of all faces and normals and indeed the mesh, as you would with NURBS and other ways to generate and manipulate geometries in CAD, nTopology is meant to be faster. Especially for large files, complex files and complex parts, the company's nTop software should be able to generate manifold geometries and modify them through a series of parameters quickly. But, will the team be able to find a place next to Autodesk, Dassault and ANSYS? Will it be able to compete, or play nice with the triangle giants? We talk about this and a lot more with Brad in an enlightening conversation.
Jan 15, 2021
3DPOD Episode 45: Sarah Goehrke, Additive Integrity, and Women in 3D Printing
44:48
Today, we've got the whirlwind that is Sarah Goehrke on the 3DPOD. Max and I had a great time talking to the former 3DPrint.com Editor-in-Chief about her editorial business, Additive Integrity, along with her work in 3D printing journalism, predictions for the next year, and a brief look back into the last year. Most of the time, however, we spoke about Women in 3D Printing and the enormous flight that this organization has taken. We discuss their upcoming conference and other events. We also talk about how to get more girls and women involved in our industry. We discuss diversity and inclusion, which are two subjects that Goehrke is passionate about. We really do hope that you like this episode and do keep your ideas, suggestions, and feedback coming.

3DPOD Episode 44: Jennifer Coyne of Wabtec & John Barnes
51:40
Today, we talk once again with John Barnes, but we also have Jennifer Coyne of the Wabtec Corporation joining the program. Wabtec is a huge Pittsburg-based train company that makes all manner of trains and train parts with 27,000 employees and $8 billion in revenue. Coyne leads their 3D printing efforts, which are mostly based around spare parts, but she discloses that they're already working on parts for new trains, as well. She openheartedly and concisely discusses the opportunity for additive at her firm, as well as the challenges. The company is working on qualifying new parts, making components that are already going on trains and is expanding to a new facility at Pittsburg's Neighbhorhood91. Coyne discusses what Wabtec is going to do at the new campus geared towards additive manufacturing located on the grounds of Pittsburg's airport. John Barnes, who runs Barnes Global Advisors, is super enthusiastic about the facility and what it will bring. He talks to us about how they want to make powder and recycle argon at the facility to lower the costs of 3D printing. Really an enjoyable episode once again that felt like a friendly chat, but was also informative.

3DPOD Episode 43: Powder Bed Fusion Innovations with Aerosint’s Edouard Moens de Hase
42:14
Edouard Moens de Hase talks to us today about Aerosint. For the last few years, they have been working on improving powder bed fusion. The company has an innovative drum roller that can recoat layers of powder selectively. This means that the company can mix several metals, polymers, or ceramics in one layer or build. The company can also make gradient materials or bimetallic parts. Aerosint's path to market is also unique in that it is focusing on its drum-based recoater technique and not in making the entire machine. Aerosint is a very inspiring company to me. They can radically alter what can be made and how parts can be designed and used with an existing technology. Aerosint could really be a force multiplier for many users and OEMs and advance 3D printing applications for many players. We hope that you enjoy listening!

This time, Max and I got to speak with 3D Systems' CEO Jeff Graves. Graves has spent over 17 years in corporate leadership roles and now will helm 3D Systems into a new era. We really enjoyed talking to him as he explained the current state of 3D Systems and what it's like to be at the company now. He also is open about divestitures, changing margins, future activities, and the focus of the firm. 3D Systems' acquisitive past has meant that it became quite amorphous and Graves is trying to change this through focusing the firm on applications where reliability is key. He also hits at selling more units and making new investments. Graves talks about how to get customers and how the firm aims to expand. He also discusses how machines, software and materials are the key pillars of the firm, crucially excluding services. He mentions some new initiatives and some future plans, as well. We really liked this talk and found Graves to be engaging and clear in his plans for one of the largest companies in 3D printing.

3DPOD Episode 41: AM for Railways with Stefanie Brickwede, Deutsche Bahn & Mobility Goes Additive
40:51
Stefanie Brickwede's efforts at Deutsche Bahn and Mobility Goes Additive are herculean and will have a significant impact on our industry. Through Brickwede's efforts, Deutsche Bahn has already 3D printed thousands of parts from polymer items to help the blind to large metal parts in critical applications. Seeing that the challenge of industrializing 3D printing for rail was too big for even the huge Deutsche Bahn, she cobbled together an alliance of railway firms and partnered them all with service companies, software firms, metal printer companies, and materials businesses to see if they could conjointly implement 3D printing for rail. This is an incredibly cost-effective move that could see us implement 3D printing across the rail industry much sooner than if everyone tried it alone. Brickwede talks with us about how she did it, what the key challenges are and were, what kinds of parts they print, and how Deutsche Bahn works together with others. I really believe that if others follow in her footsteps for other industries, applications and regions, we can accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing significantly. This is really one of the most important things happening in 3D printing, so give this a listen and spread the word.

3DPOD Episode 40: EnvisionTEC CEO Al Siblani
37:21
Al Siblani is a 3D printing pioneer who got his start over 19 years ago. He worked with layered object manufacturing—the paper, and laser technology—which is a leitmotiv of our podcast and was exceedingly problematic at the time. Subsequently, Siblani founded EnvisionTEC, whose digital light processing (DLP) technology has been a major player in manufacturing, especially for jewelry casts, hearing aids, and dental applications. We speak to Siblani about his history in 3D printing and how he managed to found his firm. He shares some war stories with us and talks about the current state of EnvisionTEC and the market. He also expresses what he wants to do in the future and how he perceives the market. EnvisionTEC's development from a one-technology company to one that deploys various different technologies in many markets makes it a versatile, independently held firm. Siblani relays the potential for one particular area, bioprinting specifically. He also talks about the position that being an employee-held company gives the firm and how he sees his independence in the future. All in all, a great story for us and hopefully for you as well. Tell us what you thought of this episode and keep up your suggestions!

3DPOD Episode 39: Roboze Founder Alessio Lorusso and High-Temperature 3D Printing
39:59
Alessio Lorusso built his first 3D printer at 17 and went on to bootstrap his company Roboze. His enthusiasm and drive really shine through in this episode of the 3DPod. The founder talks of Roboze's expansion into the U.S., where it will hire a lot of staff. He also discusses their parts service, Roboze's work in materials and their Argo printer. Lorusso discloses that Roboze wants to produce its own materials and that it has done a lot of work characterizing them. He talks about finding the right investors and the right kind of relationships, as well. Roboze is now a leader in the high-temperature FDM space, where PAEKs and other high-performance polymers are 3D printed. The high-temperature machines that make these parts out of materials such as PEI, PEKK and PEEK need to stop heat bleed in the chamber and control the print process very well. Lorusso touches on some more things also such as pre-drying and settings. He talks about Roboze's efforts at controlling repeatability and getting the same part to print in New Zealand and Texas. He outlines the vision behind his business and plots a course forward. It's easy to be swept away by Lorusso's enthusiasm and grand plans and both Max and myself were! We hope that you enjoy this episode.

3DPOD Episode 38: Formnext VP Sascha Wenzler
51:34
I think we can all agree that, so far, this year has been incredibly taxing and confusing for us all. Some of us have had their working lives affected in a much more fundamental way still. Industries such as aviation, automotive, and hospitality have been adrift on a storm of uncertainty and changing information and realities. One of the most affected fields is the convention industry. Dependent on international guests, air travel, people mixing up-close, and a wish to grow business has driven fairs and conventions to be a significant sector worldwide—one that has had a very rocky year with fits and starts. An individual that is well aware of this is Sascha Wenzler, who heads up Formnext for convention firm Mesago. Formnext is the definitive 3D printing event and brings together tens of thousands from all over the globe each year. This year, Formnext is going all-digital. That announcement rocked the 3D printing industry and has blown a hole in everyone's marketing calendar. We talk to Wenzler about what the digital Formnext will be like. How will marketeers and companies be able to showcase themselves? Wenzler mentions an interesting matching solution the company will deploy and how presentations and product launches can take place. We talk about how guests will interact and how discussions will form. We also delve deeper into the taxing year so far. Wenzler tells us with candor how it was for him and his team to endure. He tells us of the changing plans and how he's proud of the amazing responsiveness and mountains of work done by his team in organizing a Formnext, then switching over to and organizing a blended version and now switching again to an all-digital event. Wenzler also talks of the future of tradeshows and how Formnext plans to be more relevant year-round. All in all, this was a great talk and we hope that you find it informative. I really wish Sascha and his wonderful team all the best and am looking forward to an all digital but all amazing Formnext!

3DPOD Episode 37: Jos Burger, Ultimaker CEO
52:08
I met Jos Burger when I was working for Shapeways years ago. He's astute, very bright and a natural leader who later worked at Ultimaker while I was there as well. Naturally, we discussed what Burger calls "Ultimaker's romantic period," or the chaotic period between hobby and hyper-growth that he stepped into. We talked about going direct versus indirect for production, Ultimaker's European loan, the private equity investment, the number of printers the firm has sold to date (over 130,000!), and the Ultimaker ecosystem. Burger tells us of future plans and the positioning of the firm. He talks of the Business Development teams' application development, as well as training and Ultimaker Essentials. We also discuss positioning and price points. As Ultimaker moves up in the world towards corporates what does the company lose? Will they lose touch with makers, educators, and people in the developing world? Will there be fewer community improvements? Burger emphatically redoubles his support for Ultimaker's open source roots and character and calls it essential for the firm, which may assuage many a worry. All in all, both Max and I really liked hanging out with Jos Burger and we think that you'll enjoy this thoughtful conversation also.

3DPOD Episode 36: Fried Vancraen, CEO Materialise, Part II
42:52
Fried Vancraen is one of my favorite people in 3D printing. It was a pleasure working for him years ago, as well. I was therefore especially happy that Vancraen chose to come back to the 3DPod once again, as Max and I really enjoyed his initial talk. This time, Vancraen talks to us about some past things that he's experienced in terms of exciting moments and career highlights. Max asks him if he thought Materialise would be as successful as it is. Vancraen also talks about Materialise's Five Year Plans and reveals that, during the next one, he will be looking for a successor. We also mention that very many people at Materialise have been with the firm a very long time and that this may have aided the company's success. We talk about the market outlook for 3D printing and Materialise, as well. Vancraen mentions some interesting developments, such as Rapid Fit's adoption with fixtures and components for electric cars, medical printing advancements, and the firm's continued COVID response. We discuss flying cars and the entrepreneurial activity going on there, as well. Other topics include bioabsorbable PCL trachea implants and why Vancraen thinks that it's too soon for the company to invest in bioprinting. Vancraen discusses adding value and how Materialise has been extremely lucky as a company. He talks about disappointing customers and firing people. Max and I really enjoyed this talk a lot and Fried's thoughtful answers have a depth and humanism that really made us savor this episode.

3DPOD Episode 35: Todd Grimm, T.A. Grimm & Associates
57:08
Todd Grimm has been working in AM and 3D Printing for 30 years. He has done a lot of work for Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG), and is a frequent guest speaker at conferences. So, naturally, we spoke about the conferences in the COVID-19 era. As a team, we even developed an exciting new conference idea. We also looked at the past of the industry. Grimm's work as a consultant has given him a lot of different viewpoints on and through our industry. Grimm was reserved and weighed his thoughtful responses. Grimm was asked by Max what he got completely wrong and right in his predictions in the past, which he duly and bravely answered. Grimm also spoke about what has changed in the industry, how important software is, and how the market has evolved. Grimm wowed us with his deep radio voice, but, more importantly, with a great deal of insight, as well. We were challenged and this brought up a lot of new thoughts and ideas. This felt like a fireside conversation and Max and I enjoyed it immensely. We hope that you do as well!

3DPOD Episode 34: Eric Pallarés, BCN3D and Professional Desktop 3D Printing
36:05
In this episode, Max and I spoke with Eric Pallarés of BCN3D. BCN3D is a Barcelona-based material extrusion 3D printing company. Having started on the desktop, BCN3D now is moving toward enterprise and the factory floor. The company is working on developing an ecosystem of tools including software, settings, and machine. The firm's new Epsilon 3D printer is meant for engineers and has two independent extruders, carbon and HEPA filtration, as well as a large build volume. The company is entering into new territory here making something above Pro printers, but below entry-level industrial units. They call it a "workbench" system. We also delve into Pallarés's view of the market now and how the market will evolve: what will happen, what needs to happen and how printers will be improved. All in all, Pallarés gives us a lot of interesting information to think about. We'd love your feedback and keep your suggestions for new guests coming.

3DPOD Episode 33: Alexander Oster, Director of Additive Manufacturing at Autodesk
40:15
I've known Alexander Oster a long time now. He joined FIT at 16 to work on making a printer and later writing code for the leading service bureau. This eventually resulted in one of the first online price quoting tools. He then wrote one of the first software packages for creating lattices. This effort, in turn, morphed into Netfabb which was later sold to Autodesk and is now a part of Fusion 360. Now, Oster is the Director Additive Manufacturing at Autodesk. He's also the Chairman of the Technical Working Group at the 3MF Consortium. He talked to us about 3MF and what it brings to the table, as well as how adoption is faring. He also spoke about the future of file types and workflow in printing. He also spoke about Fusion 360 and what this tool brings to the ecosystem. Most importantly, Oster dove into some 3D printing history, outlining his path and that of Netfabb. Max and I both really enjoyed this story and how it dovetails with the maturing of 3D printing. We hope that you enjoy this episode, as well.

3DPOD Episode 32: Tuan TranPham, Arevo
48:28
Tuan is known universally by his first name alone. Like Madonna and Beyonce, everyone knows hi by just that one name. In Tuan's case his fame is 3D printing specific and stems from his long history in 3D printing. Tuan has been working in our industry for over 17 years. Having started at color binder jetting company ZCorp, he later worked for 3D Systems, then Objet; he went over to Stratasys, when that was acquired, then on to Arcam (GE Additive). Later on, he moved to Desktop Metal and, now, he is with AREVO. Because AREVO 3D prints composites and has now released a composite 3D printed bicycle, we spoke a bit about that on our most recent episode of 3DPOD. But, Tuan also addressed his career and new emerging technologies. We talked about 3D printing constraints and futures. We also spoke of sales, how sales in 3D printing works, and how Tuan sells. We spoke of new business models and new markets also. A candid Tuan talked about where he thinks that the industry is headed, as well. Both Max and I really enjoyed speaking with Tuan and gleaning from his insights into the industry. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.

3DPOD Episode 31: Martijn Joris, Twikit & Mass Customization
49:19
Twikit is a mass customization startup that hopes to make many things parametric. With their software, companies can let consumers customize electronics, car parts or orthotics to their liking or fit. Martijn Joris is one of the co-founders of the Belgian firm. We spoke to him about mass customization, including the applications that have a high degree of interest, such as the automotive market and things like braces and jewels. We also discussed less well-known applications such as sporting goods. Mass customization has long been a buzz word for conferences but is it really coming into its own? What is going on day to day in mass customization and is it growing? Martijn gives us an idea of what is going in their market and how Twikit works. We also talk about what is important in a mass customization solution and some limitations of mass customization. What kind of things do people want to customize and when will they be interested? Give this episode a listen and let us know what you think.

3DPOD Episode 30: John Barnes, The Barnes Group Advisors
1:03:48
John Barnes is a key figure in industrializing 3D printing for aerospace. His career had him at key roles at key times for 3D printing at Honeywell, Lockheed, and Arconic. Now, with his own firm, The Barnes Group Advisors, Barnes wants to aid companies in the qualification of parts, manufacture using 3D printing, as well as implement the technology across organizations. Recently, we discussed how they were collaborating with the VA on the Austere mask. The Barnes Group Advisors also runs training courses to teach executives what they need to know about additive. Given his extensive use of 3D printing in aerospace Barnes is skeptical of hype and trends, but wants to see the technology grow through useful applications. In this 3DPOD, we talk quite a lot about microstructure. Gradient materials and training are also subjects that we wade through. Barnes tells us what he thinks university students should cover and what is holding back the technology. We talk about his history with Optomec's LENS technology and his time at Lockheed Martin's Skunkworks, as well. CSIRO, Oakridge National Labs (ORNL), Airbus, NASA JPL, VELO, Carnegie Mellon, and DARPA are just some of the companies and institutes that we mention. This episode is skewed a bit toward the more technical side of things, but we had a blast recording it with Barnes.

3DPOD Episode 28: Ramon Pastor, HP 3D Printing
44:44
In this episode of 3DPOD, Max and I were joined by Ramon Pastor, Interim President, 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP inc. He is responsible for HP's 3D Multi Jet Fusion business and heads up HP's Barcelona Campus, as well. We interviewed Pastor previously about adding value with AM and he wrote an article for 3DPrint.com about making the world better through AM. This time, we caught up with him to talk about HP's progress and newest releases. HP recently released polypropylene as a material which I was very excited about. The company also partnered with Oechsler, added FastRadius to its network of service providers, and printed millions of parts for COVID-19. We spoke to Pastor about all of that and more in what was a thoroughly enjoyable conversation for us. We hope that you will enjoy it as well. Give it a Listen. In previous episodes, we also had the pleasure of talking to Terry Wohlers, had a discussion about decentralized manufacturing, got to talk to Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen, EOS CEO Marie Langer, Ty Pollak from Open Additive, and have had conversations about the ethics of 3D printing, 3D printing for COVID, and about handheld scanning.

3DPOD Episode 26: Decentralized Manufacturing Through 3D Printing
43:18
Distributed manufacturing is a real buzz word today. For a few years the word has been bandied about in all manner of ways in discussions about manufacturing. It has always seemed a bit abstract though a fun future idea that no one has taken very seriously. Every once in a while there would be a military initiative to manufacture in the battlefield or a green manufacturing idea to make things in an urban environment from waste materials. These trial balloons were just that, trial balloons. But now the recent global problems have lead to a reexamination of decentralized manufacturing. Resilient supply chains are now in vogue and a lot of companies are auditing their supply chains to find vulnerabilities. Could decentralized manufacturing actually work? And will 3D printing be the vehicle to make this happen? For what parts is decentralized manufacturing useful? Max and I discuss it in detail in this podcast. We hope that you enjoy it. Previously we talked with Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen,  EOS CEO Marie Langer, 3D Printing COVID, Ty Pollak about Open Additive, the ethics of 3D printing & handheld scanning. People we admire in 3D printing. Greg Paulson joins us to talk about 3D printing trends. Velo3D’s Zach Murphy talks about Velo’s technology and development.

3DPOD Episode 25: Velo3D, Knust-Godwin, and 3D printing in the Oil & Gas industry
28:14
This episode of the 3DPod is one without me in it. I had to miss this one since I was getting evacuated from Ecuador, exciting times. Instead of me, you got a bunch of good people though. Max hosted together with 3DPrint.com's own Michael Molitch-Hou. Today the subject was very specific about Velo3D metal 3D printing. Velo3D can now make 1m tall parts with a new updated Velo3D system. The new Velo system can now 3D print much taller parts than we are used to in DMLS. Mike Corliss is from Knust-Godwin a Houston based precision manufacturing company that's been using 3D printing for over 8 years to make metal parts for the oil and gas industry. What will they do with their new capabilities? What does it mean for oil and gas to be able to 3D print larger metal parts? Why is it important to them? We hope that you enjoy this episode. Previously we talked with Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen,  EOS CEO Marie Langer, 3D Printing COVID, Ty Pollak about Open Additive, the ethics of 3D printing & handheld scanning. People we admire in 3D printing. Greg Paulson joins us to talk about 3D printing trends. Velo3D’s Zach Murphy talks about Velo’s technology and development.

3DPOD Episode 24: Fried Vancraen, Materialise CEO
46:53
Fried Vancraen is a hero of mine and my old boss. So Max and I were able to have a very laid back but altogether important conversation with him about COVID, what it's like to have a company right now, what Materialise is doing vis a vis COVID and the future. We really enjoyed speaking about how a large company in our industry is rising to the challenging COVID world. I think this is a great podcast on responsibility, ethical entrepreneurship, agility and solving real challenges through 3D printing. We really hope you enjoy this episode.
Apr 14, 2020
3DPOD Episode 23: COVID-19 and 3D Printing; What can be printed? What should be printed?
43:30
This was a highly personal podcast for all of us. Max had gone from New York to Boston, I'm stuck in South America but Davide was in the most precarious position in one of the worst-hit areas in Milan, Italy. What we spoke about this time is COVID-19. We tried to ignore this disease here at 3DPrint.com but due to the industry's valiant efforts in trying to help we needed to do an about-face and talk about it. What followed was a personal discussion where we were at times very enthusiastic about what 3D printing is doing now. At other times we were sanguine or very human and I think it all added up to an excellent episode. Previously we talked with EOS CEO Marie Langer, Ty Pollak about Open Additive, the ethics of 3D printing & handheld scanning. People we admire in 3D printing. Greg Paulson joins us to talk about 3D printing trends. Velo3D’s Zach Murphy talks about Velo’s technology and development. We interview Formalloy’s Melanie Lang on directed energy deposition.

3DPOD Episode 22: Marie Langer the CEO of EOS
44:05
Both Max and I were honored to have Marie Langer as our guest in this episode of the 3DPod. Marie is the CEO of EOS the leading firm in sintering of both polymers and metals. For the past decades, EOS has lead the way in commercializing sintering (L-PBF) for manufacturing and prototyping. Now the firm is at the bleeding edge of manufacturing with 3D printing but also finds itself facing competition from the likes of GE and HP. What makes EOS very special as a firm is that they're a privately held company. Marie's father started it thirty years ago and now it's her turn to helm the family business. We talk to Marie about what this is like, what her outlook and strategy are and what she finds important. We also look at industrialization for 3D printing and what this means, culture, sustainability and the future of 3D printing. We really enjoyed doing this episode and hope that you enjoy listening to it as much. Previously we talked with Ty Pollak about Open Additive, the ethics of 3D printing & handheld scanning. People we admire in 3D printing. Greg Paulson joins us to talk about 3D printing trends. Velo3D’s Zach Murphy talks about Velo’s technology and development.

3DPOD Episode 21: 3D Printing at Scale with Xometry’s Greg Paulsen
50:44
Today Max and I speak with Xometry's Greg Paulsen again. This time we talk about scale in 3D printing. With manufacturing and real production seen as the new 3D printing frontier, companies are gearing up for products, services and the ever-popular "end to end solutions." But, can we really do scale in 3D printing? And also should we want to do millions of low-cost parts? Or should we focus on scale but in limited verticals and applications? Can you do low cost and high-value parts at the same time? Or will we see specialized low cost and high regulatory regime players emerge? We don't have all the answers but in a lively discussion, we talk about how far away we are from scale and what is needed. We hope you enjoy this episode and please do reach out to me should you wish to suggest a topic or guest. Previously we talked with Ty Pollak about Open Additive, the ethics of 3D printing & handheld scanning. People we admire in 3D printing. Greg Paulson joins us to talk about 3D printing trends.

3DPOD Episode 20: Ty Pollak, Open Additive
46:53
Today Max and I have a special guest, Ty Pollak of Open Additive. We're really proud of this episode and we enjoyed the discussion and all that we learned from Ty. Open Additive is trying to develop an open powder bed fusion technology stack. Meant specifically for universities, developers of materials and experimental use, Open Additive gives researchers more of an extensible and research-ready package that can even be customized to certain applications. With easier access to parts and more settings to play with users can change more parameters and do things such as qualify new exotic materials, strategies, and processes.

3DPOD Episode 17: People We Admire in 3D Printing
30:22
Today we had an episode that was a free-ranging discussion between Max and myself on the people we admire in 3D printing. First off, we have to admit to being rather embarrassed that we forgot so many people. We forgot to mention E-NABLE for example and all the great folks working on that for example. So we're both a bit sorry for being scatterbrained but hope that we do give a good overview of at least some of the people we admire in 3D printing. Please let us know what you think.

3DPOD Episode 14: Consumer and Affordable 3D Printers
32:24
This 3DPod Episode is filled with opinion. Here we look at our favorite affordable desktop 3D printers. We evaluate what we want to see in a printer and how far these machines have come. There is a new emerging category of printers priced from around $100 to $800 that are increasingly being sold in their thousands. With these machines, there is definitely some "buyer beware" to consider. But, even though some have caught flames these low-cost machines are opening up 3D printing to tens of thousands of new users. Do you agree with our choices of which printers we like? What other ones did we forget? Many of the 3D printers discussed here can be found in the 2019 3D printing buying guide. Velo3D's Zach Murphy talks about Velo's technology and development. We interview Formalloy's Melanie Lang on directed energy deposition. Greg Paulsen of Xometry talks to us about 3D printing applications. Here we discuss 3D Printing in space.

3D Pod Episode 6 Bioprinting
33:11
Max and I discuss bioprinting this week. We go into detail about the different things that excite us from in situ, to scaffolds, to skin to cartilage. We talk about the science fiction like frontier that will open for us and the real things that are happening today. We're both excited about near term ways through which bioprinting coupled with microfluidics can advance science and drug discovery can become a brute force problem. We're also excited about how bioprinting can advance medicine by requiring less animal testing for example. As for cartilage and bone were also very positive about those developments. We both consider 3D printing organs to be years away but speculate about an exciting future where that is possible. Please enjoy!
