3D Printed Parts: Why Quality Management Matters

Grant Shirley (Quality Systems Manager , Stratasys Direct Manufacturing Inc.)

Location: 208B

Date: Wednesday, February 6

Time: 3:15pm - 4:00pm

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit

Vault Recording: TBD

3D printing has the benefit of speed, giving manufacturers the ability to get their production parts to market faster. But with this newfound speed also comes the possibility of errors being introduced. As the practice of 3D printing parts with exotic materials and of complex geometries has become more common, so has the need for rigorous quality assurance testing and inspection. This session will address why quality testing and inspection is an important and necessary implementation.
