Pushing the boundaries of professional 3D printing

Additive Manufacturing Track

Shifting to sustainable manufacturing means making products in a way that is better for the planet, people, and productivity. Together with industry leaders from around the world, we will examine the ways that eyewear, automotive, aerospace, and the many other industries using 3D printing can push the boundaries of what is possible, and do so in a responsible way.
Come to get inspired by AM experts sharing their latest and greatest designs, using the most productive and connected software tools on the market. And leave with a vision on how to make your business sustainable and cost-effective by using the latest 3D printing tools and techniques.
