Leveraging the Synergy Between Digital Tools & 3D Printing

Xiao Zhong (Analyst, Lux Research)

Location: 208B

Date: Wednesday, February 6

Time: 9:15am - 10:00am

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit

Vault Recording: TBD

Thanks to the recent convergence of AI, big data, and increasing computing power, new product design and simulation tools are coming out and bringing synergies to 3D printing. Such synergies have resulted in new ways to design, simulate, and manufacture that are somewhat overlooked but are too important to miss. This session will introduce the new design and simulation technologies with case studies to illustrate how the synergies with 3D printing may disrupt manufacturing.

  • How is the startup space positioning players to capitalize on this trend?
  • Exploring various technologies, focuses, and strategies emerging in the start-up community
  • Examining the potential for disruption in the manufacturing industry
  • Top reasons to engage with start-ups during this opportune time
