Materials + 3D Printing 2019

Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 2019

Houston, Texas

CONTENT: Polymers and Materials are synonymous in many applications and everyday things. Yet they are two distinct terms when applied to the wide varied of properties that is associated with manufactured and engineered materials. This conference and workshop will focus on bridging the knowledge gap and appreciation for the properties of materials (polymers, metals, ceramics) when applied to additive manufacturing methods and 3D printing. This will involve delivering content to both novice and expert.  Chemists, metallurgists, and plastics engineers will find the requirements for performance limits most 3D printing objects as prototypes rather than replacement parts. Another is in finding new applications in tooling, parts replacement, molds, and high build volume applications that are becoming the realm of digital manufacturing.

RELEVANCE: This conference is open to both the novice and the highly experienced researcher. It will be highly valued by technical and marketing managers in the new knowledge of materials and methods it provides. For the researcher, it will connect real-world applications with basic technology platforms. The participant will learn the new developments in coatings technologies and the use of new high-performance polymers, smart additives and formulations methods including nanomaterials.  On the other hand, it is also a training venue for learning the fundamentals of polymers, metals, ceramics, 3D printing technology, characterization techniques, thermo-mechanical evaluation, etc.  in a relatively short time.

NETWORKING: The conference will be highly valued for the networking opportunities between experts and decision makers in R&D and marketing both in industry and academia. It will provide opportunities to meet with different companies and solution providers in materials, formulations, analytical methods, and project services.

This conference and workshop will cover:

  • Polymers, Metals, Ceramics, Thermosets, and Elastomers. What is the difference?
  • Structure-Property Relationship of Materials for 3D Printing
  • Traditional Manufacturing vs. Additive Manufacturing
  • Thermo-mechanical characterization and properties of Polymer Materials
  • Methods of 3D-Printing: FDM, SLA, SLS, VSP, etc.
  • Tools, Parts, Molds, and Manufacturing
  • High Volume Build and Production Requirements
  • Principles of Lightweighting and Design from Automotive to Aerospace
  • High-Performance Polymers, Nanomaterials, Alloys, and Nanocomposites
  • Characterization and Stress Testing
  • Design-Materials Properties Principles
  • Biomedical Applications of 3D Printing
  • Coatings and Finishes for 3D Printing
  • Network Distribution and the Digital Economy
  • Recycling and Life Cycle Analysis
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Education and Training
  • 4D Printing and Beyond

The format of the workshop includes introduction and fundamentals for the polymers, 3D printing, and fabrication industries,


This will be a two-day Conference-Training meeting and premier networking event that will draw participants from many in the industry: chemical companies, academia, coatings experts, formulators, applicators.

Certificate of Completion given, 

Question and Answer Sessions.
Networking Opportunities - 3D Printing companies, Polymer Companies, Chemical R & D divisions, Fabrication Industries, design companies, chemical suppliers, and other service companies

EXHIBITION New Instrumentation and Products from selected exhibitors (15 slots only).
