Event description

Description

Cyant and Women in 3D Printing are presenting #3DTalk, an industry-specific and educational event series focused on 3D printing and related technologies and featuring leading women in the industry. #3DTalk panels are open to everyone: men and women, kids and adults, novice and experts in 3D Printing. Monthly events are organized in San Francisco, New York area, France and other locations around the world all year long.

Learn more about #3DTalk, our past and future events here.

This #3DTalk will focus on the use of 3D Printing in the Aerospace industry, bringing women working each day in the field to discuss how areas from training to materials are evolving.

Stay tuned for full location details!

Thank you to Relativity Space for sponsoring this event, and to Makers at USC Viterbi Club for hosting us!

PANELISTS



Eliana Fu at Relavity Space

Eliana is the Senior Raw Materials Supply Chain Engineer at Relavity Space, to establish a strong materials supply chain as they try to achieve their dream of becoming the first company to 3D print an entire rocket. She is a metallurgist with specialization in titanium, and has spent most of my career working in traditional wrought product metallurgy. Educated at Imperial College, University of London (Masters and PhD in Materials Science), Eliana also holds a Post Docs from Loughborough University (UK) and Clemson University (USA). Before joining Relativity Space, Eliana worked at Firth Rixson Rings (Rotherham, UK), TIMET (Henderson, NV) and SpaceX (Hawthorne, CA).



Alison Mendoza at The Barnes Group Advisors

Alison is a Business Development professional with diverse experience in Commercial Aviation, Aerospace MRO, and Additive Manufacturing (AM). Over the past decade, she has spent time in various roles at Emirates Airline, AeroTurbine, Honeywell Aerospace, and GE Additive. Alison holds a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Linguistics and a Master of Business Administration with a focus in Aviation from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. She now works with The Barnes Group Advisors as the Business Leader for Additive Manufacturing Training Services, and manages www.additivealison.com, an online journal and informal blog designed to help generate awareness of additive manufacturing.



Melissa Orme at Morf3D

Melissa Orme, Ph.D. was born and raised in Southern California. She earned her doctorate degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Southern California. Melissa belongs to that small group of engineers who have participated ‘hands-on’ in the field of Additive Manufacturing before the term or even the industry of “Additive Manufacturing” existed. Her career has been divided between academia and small business. On the academic front, she worked as a Professor at UCI for twelve years, where she rose to the rank of Full Professor. She was an early pioneer in the field of 3D printing of metallic parts resulting in 15 US patents and 3 pending. Her cutting-edge research on net-form manufacturing of metallic components received international recognition and numerous awards, among which include the N.S.F. Young Investigator Award and the AAUW Judith Resnick Fellowship Award. During much of this time period, 3D printing machines for metallic materials were nonexistent or in a few cases, were in their research and development phase. It is fair to say that Melissa’s research program was ahead of her time. Her patented inventions relevant to 3D printing are concerned with novel AM methods with molten metal micro-droplets, novel methods of customizing the size distribution of metallic powders, and high speed direct circuit board printing.
She currently serves as CTO of Morf3D, Inc., a start-up company that is focused on Additive Manufacturing of metallic components primarily for the Aerospace and Defense Industry. In that capacity she oversees the company’s AM development programs for small lot production, which includes new material parameter development, novel AM design implementation, component validation and qualification. Melissa continuously evaluates new Additive Manufacturing technologies for inclusion into Morf3D’s offerings. She is pleased to be afforded the opportunity to have been involved in Additive Manufacturing from the early research days in the late 1980’s to its current implementation in industry.


MODERATORS

Nora Toure is an Additive Manufacturing expert and engaged in inspiring women to embrace Tech. careers in the 3D Printing industry. She started her career in the Additive Manufacturing in 2010 by joining online 3D Printing service leader, Sculpteo and now serves as VP of Strategy at Ivaldi. Nora founded Women in 3D Printing in 2014 to feature women leaders in the Additive Manufacturing industry through interviews and portraits. Pursuing her vision for more social inclusion, she recently joined 3D Africa as Board Advisor.


Lindsey Zindroski is the founder and creative director at Orange County Makerspace. The OC Makerspace is a creative technology workshop, offering community members and small business startups a space to share ideas with the tools and fabrication equipment needed to bring ideas to life. She's also the CEO at SNL Creative, a Strategic Partner for Prototyping & Production projects. They provide a single source partnership for CAD Design, Advanced Prototyping, Production parts, and Manufacturing Tooling.
