Three Untold Truths in Manufacturing with 3D Printing

Ken Burns (Technical Director, Forecast 3D)

Location: 208B

Date: Wednesday, February 6

Time: 8:30am - 9:15am

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit

Vault Recording: TBD

3D Printing has continually been discussed as revolutionizing the way products are manufactured, but it is often reduced back to prototyping. While niche applications (primarily in Aerospace and Medical) have carved out a small piece of 3D production there have been too many technical constraints to truly start the next industrial revolution. Through the use of case studies, this session will drill down into how companies are successfully adopting Additive Manufacturing, and the roads they are taking to get there.
