Director, Rapid Prototyping Consortium 

Vince Anewenter holds a BS in Business Finance from MSOE’s Raider School of Business and is a Journeyman toolmaker. He is currently the Director of the Rapid Prototyping Consortium at the Milwaukee School of Engineering where he has been actively involved in the additive manufacturing industry since 2004. As Director, Mr. Anewenter is responsible for providing strategic additive manufacturing guidance and new product development expertise to a non-compete consortium of over 45 companies located throughout the world. Areas of expertise include: additive manufacturing, 3D scanning, injection molding, stamping, castings and product design. Vince also serves on the Board of Directors of the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) as Treasurer and Director since 2012. AMUG is the largest users conference for the additive manufacturing industry in the world.


Additive Manufacturing—Now and in the Future

Vince Anewenter will present a brief overview of the Milwaukee School of Engineering's Rapid Prototyping Center, how it operates, technology overview, and guiding mission. This will lead into an overview of the current status of the additive manufacturing industry, followed by a forward looking discussion on what the future might hold for current and emerging technologies.

Before the meeting, Brett Register, R&D Technical Service manager at DSM Functional Materials, will present.

Brett Register holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin at La Crosse. Brett’s main expertise lies within the 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing industry. He has worked for DSM for 18 years; during that time, he has held various roles within R&D where he developed 3D Printing resins for stereolithography. In his current role, he helps PAGE 4 JANUARY NEWSLETTER CHICAGO SECTION bring new 3D Printing resins to the market, aids customers in application development, and manages a group within R&D that runs a large number of industrial 3D Printers (mostly Stereolithography). When Brett is not at work you can most likely find him on a trout stream in Southwestern Wisconsin. 


Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing have been in the news more and more over the past few years. It is often referred to by everyone from design engineers and medical professionals right down to elementary school students. Even with all the talk, there is still a line between hobbyist using the lower cost 3D printing technologies and true additive platforms in real manufacturing applications. In this presentation, DSM will demonstrate many of the applications where true additive manufacturing makes a significant impact in industries like aerospace, automotive and medical.
