While additive manufacturing technologies - also known as "Rapid Prototyping" or "3D Printing" - are still being used by design engineers for concept modeling and prototyping, that's not all. Manufacturing engineers are now employing these technologies for various applications such as jigs, fixtures, check gauges, and even as a bridge-to-tooling and low-volume end-use parts. Attendees of this presentation will discover how additive manufacturing is changing the future of product development and manufacturing.
- Understand how additive manufacturing can help designers create better products
- Learn why additive manufacturing gets products to market faster and cheaper
- Discover how companies like BMW, GM, and Boeing use additive manufacturing
- Hear what's in store for additive manufacturing in the future
