AM Conference Speaker: Autodesk

The keynote speaker at the 2016 Additive Manufacturing Conference addresses advances in industrial 3D printing.

Additive manufacturing relies on more than just material and design. Components made via 3D printing are complex and sometimes unpredictable, forcing designers, engineers and product developers to think carefully about the right approach.

Amar Hanspal, senior vice president in charge of products at Autodesk, will address those considering additive as an industrial technology in a keynote speech at the upcoming Additive Manufacturing Conference, co-located with IMTS 2016. Hanspal leads Autodesk’s development of solutions for designers and engineers and oversees the company’s full range of product design. He holds a master’s of science in mechanical engineering from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Bombay.

Using real-world, customer examples, Hanspal will discuss recent advances in industrial 3D printing technology and explain how the manufacturing industry will soon accept additive as mainstream production. This presentation takes place Tuesday, September 13 at 8 a.m.

Autodesk’s senior product manager of materials, Raphael Stargrove, will also be presenting an introduction to manufacturing approaches and solutions in the additive product development process. Examples of specific products and the software, hardware and materials required will be discussed during Stargrove’s presentation on Wednesday, September 14, at 8:30 a.m. Both presentations will be held in Sky Ballroom B, room W375-B.
