3D Printing Seminars help manufacturers accelerate design-to-manufacturing workflows.

3D printing technology has been in use by the manufacturing industry for many years but many businesses which could benefit from the technology have yet to adopt it. There are many reasons for this slow adoption - many do not understand how 3d printers function, how does the technology fit into their work flow, what their long term costs and cost savings maybe, or which printers would be best for their particular businesses. 

As leaders within the 3D printing industry, Objective3D understands this lack of information within the market place. Since April of last year to date, the company has hosted over 18 "Manufacturing the Future" Seminars around Australia and New Zealand focused primary at informing, educating, and inspiring local businesses, designers, engineers,educators, entrepreneurs and other professional around Australia and New Zealand on the applications and benefits of 3D Printing. These seminars have been a huge success, both in educating and driving businesses to either adopt Objective3D's range of Stratasys 3D printer solutions or to use the 3D printing and custom manufacturing services offered by Objective3D Direct Manufacturing. Many have even traveled interstate to the Melbourne Seminar to tour the Objective3D Additive Manufacturing Centre, the largest commercial based 3D Printing facility in the country which houses the widest range of FDM and PolyJet Machines including consumables and spare parts.

Seminars were held in various cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Wagga-Wagga, Newcastle, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch and have managed to reach over 900 individuals. The latest concluded on 13th and 20th April at Flinders University SA and the University Technology Sydney, where Objective3D's latest metal solutions offering was introduced to over 130 individuals from the aerospace, defense, automotive, industrial / consumer products, dental, education, architectural industries as well as the government departments.

Objective3D will continue offering this seminar series in the coming months with events in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth all locked in. Stay tuned for an email invite or if you would like to be included in an invite, send an email to

All Objective3D Seminars will cover the following:

Delivering High Quantities of Prototypes Fast

Objective3D Direct Manufacturing produces parts using a range of additive and conventional manufacturing technologies. We offer tailored solutions for your project’s needs. If your project requires larger quantities of small parts – fast, Laser Sintering is the best technological solution for you. Per-part pricing is reduced as quantities increase, but there are more advantages to using Laser Sintering for small prototypes than price alone.

Laser Sintering (LS) provides strong, versatile and geometrically intricate components made from filled and un-filled nylon materials that are ideal for fit and form verification and functional testing. Prototypes made with LS are created quickly and offer robust solutions for your project.
FAST Delivery Laser Sintering can provide sturdy, functional prototypes as little as 24 hours. Multi-component designs can be incorporated into single structures, allowing engineers to produce complex features and geometries in one print, and eliminating the need…

3D scanning and reverse engineering streamline original furniture design and production

MU Form Furniture Design is an Oakland-based company that designs, manufactures and distributes furniture products for the modern home and business. The company is never short of orders since good and original design is sought after by architects and interior designers.

The main material MU Form works with is high-quality bent ply, which is one of the most widely used materials in this industry due to its ability to create a variety of shapes for chairs, stools, and tables.

The company’s specialists seek to create great designs that pose a challenge for other manufacturers to copy or replicate.

“Our designers are tasked to develop furniture designs that require a significant amount of trial and error by developing physical prototypes of chairs and stools,” says Mark Leong, CEO of MU Form.

To produce a new original piece of furniture, MU Form would normally ship a physical prototype model to a factory overseas so they reverse engineer the model by using a router duplicator to create a …

Commodore Ute to US: 100,000 votes needed!

According to The Age Drive and an article by Barry Park, we are again set to export our Commodore Ute to the US.

The article is as follows:

US website rallies to GM's Twitter call of 'If you ask for an El Camino ute, we'll do it'.

An off-the-cuff quip from General Motors' newly appointed chief marketing officer could be just the thing to help Holden's cause to sell the Commodore ute in the US.

Joel Ewanick, who made the jump from Hyundai to the US car maker late last year, recently joined the social networking service Twitter. He soon started interacting with Chevrolet fans, with many of them asking for the car maker to re-introduce a vehicle based on a cross between a truck (ute) and a car.

In response to one passionate request for a new-age El Camino, Ewanick wrote: ''Well, we need you and 100,000 more of your best friends.''
