European CAxMan Additive Manufacturing Road Tour
We initiated the "European CAxMan Additive Manufacturing Road Tour (CAM-RT)“ to underpin the customer development process.
Five workshops are taking place during March and August in five different countries.
The workshops focus on addressing SMEs that are new to this topic, beginners in additive manufacturing, or interested in boosting their own AM processes.

The first stop on the CAxMan road tour was the SubSea Valley Conference and Exhibition (http://ssvconference.com/) arranged in Oslo, Norway on March 21 and 22, 2018. The event attracted more than 1900 delegates and more than 100 exhibitors. It addressed the Norway Oil and Gas industry (O&G), and suppliers to O&G industry. The O&G industry, as well as suppliers, have realised the benefits of additive manufacturing (AM), and the need for better digital engineering solutions supporting AM in a product lifecycle perspective.
CAxMan was presented both at SINTEF's and Tronrud's booth in the 3DPark of the exhibition. The 3DPark also hosted a workshop on AM. In this the CAxMan partners SINTEF, Tronrud and clesgo presented the ambition and results of CAxMan. Through the exhibition and workshop CAxMan was presented in person to more than 30 delegates. Many more stopped to look at the information material without getting in direct dialogue with the Caxman representatives. The Tronrud booth was visited by the Prime Minister of Norway, Erna Solberg.
Our second stop of the CAxMan Additive Manufacturing Road Tour is at the Metromeet Conference http://metromeet.org/ . Visit the joint booth of Trimek and Innovalia and listen to the presentations of our colleagues from Trimek and Missler Software.
The third stop of the CAxMan AM Road Tour is at the 3D Print Exhibition http://www.3dprint-exhibition.com/ .
Visit TopSolid's booth, talk to our colleagues of SINTEF, Missler and clesgo, and listen to our talk in the workshop area.
Improve the Efficiency of your AM Process!
The Italian stop of the CAxMan road tour was organised by STAM S.r.l. and CNR-IMATI.
The workshop was hosted by the IFIP 15th International Conference on Product Life cycle Management (plm-conference.org)on the 2nd of July 2018. Since 2003, PLM International Conference brings together researchers, developers, and end-users and aims at involving all stakeholders of the wide concept of PLM, in order to shape the future of this field and advance the science and practice of enterprise development.
The CAxMan event was opened by Prof. Stork; he engaged the whole audience with a keynote on the convergence of volumetric modelling, simulation and 3D printing.
The floor was then taken by Marco Attene and Lorenzo Tamellini (CNR-IMATI) who covered the aspects of process planning, optimization and isogeometric analysis. They were followed by Stefano Ellero from STAM, in representation of the project use cases, and Sebastian Peña Serna from clesgo, who described the CAxMan marketplace.
The audience was an eclectic mix of academic and industrial stakeholders. Around 50 people attended the keynote and about half of them followed the consortium in the thematic workshop.
The last stop of the CAxMan AM Road Tour is at Fraunhofer IGD (igd.fraunhofer.de/veranstaltungen/caxman-roadtour-workshop).
The workshop is organized by Fraunhofer IGD, clesgo, and DFKI, including industrial talks by cirp GmbH and Kegelmann Technik GmbH.
