AMUG April 2024

By April 18, 2024

April 2024

President’s report

I hope this first post-conference newsletter finds you rested, inspired, educated, ambitious, and connected! Speaking for myself, I can nod my head to all of these things! AMUG 2024 had a lead-up filled with meetings, letters, planning, contracts, site visits, phone calls, app building, Formstack stacking, and enthusiasm. Our five-day event shared with you makes every moment of dedication well spent. Oh, how I enjoyed the days spent together at our conference!

“Don’t be afraid of change. You may end up losing something good, but you will probably end up gaining something better.” We definitely changed some things for AMUG 2024, and we did so with the greatest of intentions and the hopes that we will clearly know whether the changes should continue to be implemented, reverted back, or evolve once again. This is where YOU come in! Your mobile app has a yellow button showing “Evaluations & Certificates” where you can complete a survey. There are also surveys coming soon from our Director of Membership and our Director of Sponsors & Exhibitors, which will be more specific. We’d love to utilize your responses as we strategize for 2025 when our board gathers in July.

Assessing the changes we made for 2024—and revisiting the things that remained constant—will be central to our discussions in upcoming meetings where we build the plans to keep AMUG impactful, relevant, and highly regarded in our industry.

You may recall that we will also be forwarding an email for voting to change one section of the bylaws (currently, it limits the role of President to be held by an individual NOT employed by an industry OEM) that requires a membership vote to execute—this was brought up and opened up for discussion in our business meeting.

OHHHH, speaking of change… you heard our announcement at the business meeting that we have secured our dates/location for AMUG 2026. Our 2026 conference will be in Reno, Nevada, from March 15 – 19, 2026. Mark your calendars now! I’ve seen some rumblings online regarding planned ski trips/spa trips/sightseeing that would book-end conference attendance. This warms my heart as I watch AMUG Members plan to share social time. This truly is a community!

Before Reno, we will return to Chicago for the 2025 AMUG Conference, which will be held from March 30 to April 3, 2025.

Rest assured; we are back at it with conviction and determination to build AMUG 2025 to be content-rich, technology-inspired, educationally stimulating, collaboration-focused, and joy-filled! As always, if I may be helpful to you or you wish to connect with me, I welcome that. Please do reach out at

Appreciating you,

Shannon VanDeren

Lifetime Achievement Award presented to Gary Rabinovitz

To cap off decades of active involvement with AMUG and in recognition of all of his contributions, Gary Rabinovitz, AM/3D Printing Lab Manager at Reebok, was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2024 AMUG Conference. Gary is only the second in the organization’s 36-year history to receive this honor.

Gary is a member of the board of directors (Director at Large) and chair of both the DINO Selection and Collaboration Committees. Without interruption, Gary has served as an AMUG officer or director since 2011. Over those 13 years, he has held the following positions: Vice President, President, Past President, Advisor to the Board, Chairman, and Director at Large. In 2001, he was elected President of the Selective Laser Sintering Users Group, which merged with the Stereolithography Users Group to form what is now known as AMUG.

Paul Bates, Gary’s former manager at Reebok and a longtime friend, presented the award. Paul said, “Much of what Gary has done is unknown to the AMUG membership. But having worked closely with him for so many years, I witnessed his pivotal role in providing leadership, guidance and counsel as AMUG transitioned over the past 24 years. I have also seen his diligence in doing the work needed to make the changes possible and keep AMUG true to its mission.”

Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition, Gary.

Five receive DINO Awards

The prestigious Distinguished INnovator Operator (DINO) Award recognizes tenure in the AM industry, years of service, contributions to the industry, and active support of AMUG and its conference. Over its 36-year history, AMUG has awarded only 193 DINOs.

At AMUG 2024, five individuals were recognized with DINO Awards:

  • Jamie Cone, BD
  • Steve Grundahl, Prototek
  • Thomas Murphy, New Jersey Innovation Institute – COMET
  • Vadim Pikhovich, MAGMA Foundry Technologies
  • Bob Renella, GoEngineer

Receiving a DINO is not the endgame for those who demonstrate the passion and dedication that the DINO Selection Committee seeks. Instead, it is a momentous milestone in the years-long support of the community, which is very true for Jamie, Steve, Thomas, Vadim and Bob.

Congratulations to each of you for receiving this recognition.

Technical Competition results

The 2024 Technical Competition entries “Demonstrated ingenuity and highlighted projects that are only made possible with the use of AM technologies,” said Bonnie Meyer, Technical Competition Committee Chair. But there could only be one winner in each of the three categories.

For Advanced Concepts, Chris Baschuk, Director of Clinical Services at Point Design LLC, had the winning entry titled “Lightweight Revolution: Ventilated Multi-material Shoulder Disarticulation Prosthesis.” Manufactured with HP’s Multi Jet Fusion, in rigid PA 12 and flexible TPU, the patient-specific device balances functionality with user comfort by leveraging the distinctive capabilities of AM.

Mike Littrell, President of BuildParts by CIDEAS, Inc., had the winning entry in Advanced Finishing. “Coin-Operated Rides” displayed visually stunning scale replicas that pay tribute—in style, materials, colors, and functionality—to a carefree, bygone era of entertainment and culture. The scale models included a “Race to the Moon” rocket scooter and a futuristic spacecraft from a 1950s point of view.

Advanced Concepts and Advanced Finishing are judged by a panel of AMUG DINOs. The third category, Members’ Choice, is assessed by AMUG Members. The top spot in this category went to Sam Mills, Engineering Specialist for Eaton, for “Fully AM Luminaire. ” Sam represented a team of AM and material science experts that successfully created a luminaire (90% 3D printed) to tackle Department of Energy (DOE) manufacturing goals for reshoring, SKU reduction, and efficiency.

AMUGderby: The results are in

The inaugural AMUGderby was a huge success. Over 80 racers and hundreds of spectators participated in the Tuesday night event at AMUG 2024.

In the best design category, Lino Stavole of RICOH/3D for Healthcare took the top spot.

For speed, Steve Charles of MacLean Additive had the fastest average time and the quickest lap times for the event in six of his races.

Rounding out the top six spots for speed were:

  • 2nd: Chase Armstrong of Boeing
  • 3rd: Brent Griffith of Labconco
  • 4th: Vince Anewenter (Shake and Bake Racing) of MSOE
  • 5th: Kate Ashby (Basement Prints) of littleLot3D
  • 6th: Dave Howe (Problem Child) of Parker

The AMUGderby was a great success partly due to the local BSA Cub Scout Pack. It provided guidance, supplied the track, and ran the show. In return, AMUG donated to the Pack. However, AMUG Members made an even greater impact by donating their 3D-printed cars to the Scouts.

We received this note from the Scouts:

The scouts (and parents) LOVED checking out the printed cars. We ran some at our derby this past Sunday so they could see them go. We were all impressed at the variety of materials and designs and appreciated that, just like the Scouts, there were fast cars, slow cars, cars going for design, and a lot of variety. One of my co-leaders sent this note: “My buddy is a den leader in Arkansas. He’s also a professor in computer engineering. He was loving the 3D cars.”  In short, they were a hit and another way to get the scouts interested in STEM in general and 3D printing in particular.

With enthusiasm for the derby and its positive impact, we plan to bring this activity back in 2025.

Join Deutsche Bahn AG, Würth Additive Group & Siemens Mobility for the second Additive Talks session

“How to ensure a pragmatic use of AM across the digital supply chain?”

While exact estimates are hard to determine, market analysts agree with the fact that spare-parts manufacturing is a multi-billion-dollar industry – given the fact that it spans different vertical industries, some of them being crucial to the growth of AM.

When one looks at the capital cost required to carry inventory, the administrative and insurance burdens related to that inventory, the “stock risk cost,” or even the transportation costs, the idea of no longer storing any physical parts and producing them only where and when required rapidly becomes attractive.

If AM can be a great enabler of a digital inventory, one should remain cautious about its ability to address the supply chain challenges of a given industry. Indeed, organizations that consider pivoting towards a spare parts business model should be able to make strategic decisions that are not limited to producing on demand with AM at various locations.

During the next Additive Talks session, on April 24 from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm CET (9:30 am to 10:30 am EDT), executives from Deutsche Bahn AG, Würth Additive Group, and Siemens Mobility will go beyond the use of AM as an opportunity to focus on the strategic steps to consider in a successful AM spare- parts business.
