Join us for an all-encompassing look at industrial 3D printing – where the technology is today, how it got there, and where it’s heading. Early adopters are using 3D printing to improve product design, streamline manufacturing processes, and lean out their supply chains. Cutting-edge software is being used alongside 3D printing to design previously “impossible,” parts optimized beyond conventional manufacturing capabilities.
