Technology Demonstration on Generative Design and Additive Manufacturing

NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem: Technology Demonstration on Generative Design and Additive Manufacturing 

This technology demonstration is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for the New England defense supply chain. For more information, please visit

Join us for a virtual presentation on the use and results of generative design and resulting demonstration parts printed by CCAT.

Generative design mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design. Parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, strength and thermal requirements are defined, and the AI driven generative design process fully optimizes the design to best fulfill functional requirements.

3D Printing (or Additive Manufacturing) is a powerful tool available to manufacturers. Some companies are adopting the technology to produce end-use parts, but even if your customers are not sending you RFQ’s for additively made parts, most companies can adopt additive to create tools, fixtures, prototypes and other aids to assist traditional manufacturing processes.

This session will be recorded and made available on-demand.

Learning Objectives

By the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will:
• Learn the basics of generative design workflow
• Learn what parameters can be optimized
• Understand how generative design can best leverage additive manufacturing

Supporting Digital Transformation with Legacy Components

Digital transformation (DX) promises increased competitiveness, optimized processes and profitability through big data, along with improved employee and customer relations. Gathering data is essential in the 21st century data-oriented environment and requires flexible, interconnected components. Businesses will need people with the specialized skills to implement and optimize all of this. Beyond that, each firm will have to work with its unique DX plans and existing IT environment.

NH’s Supply Chain Challenges

Across industries, New Hampshire businesses have been navigating the burdens of skyrocketing prices and difficulties obtaining essential materials since the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted supply chains.

Department of Energy Awards $3.7 Million to Address U.S. Manufacturing Challenges

On Monday, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded $3.7 million for high performance computing (HPC) projects that address key challenges in U.S. manufacturing and materials development. As part of DOE’s High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) initiative, the 13 selected teams will work with the Department’s national laboratories to apply advanced modeling, simulation, and data analysis to projects that improve manufacturing efficiency and explore new materials for energy application.

Commonly Misused Terms in Cybersecurity

When I created the cybersecurity term database, which is the backbone of the NIST Cybersecurity Glossary, I was amazed at how much confusion there was about even ubiquitous terms like “risk” and “security.” There still is no real consensus of what the word “cybersecurity” means! So, I’ve compiled a list of some commonly misused terms in the field of cybersecurity (these are unofficial descriptions that are meant to be informative):

NIST Launches New Manufacturing USA Technology Roadmap Grant Competition

GAITHERSBURG, Md. — Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced a new competition for awards to support industry-driven consortia in developing technology roadmaps that will address high-priority research challenges to grow the advanced manufacturing sector in the U.S.
