3D Printing: Automotive, Aerospace, Biomedical and Consumer Applications

3D Printing: Automotive, Aerospace, Biomedical and Consumer Applications

Much progress has been made since the MIT Enterprise Forum of Atlanta and the Georgia Tech Business Network looked at innovations in 3D manufacturing 4 years ago.  3D printers have matured in both speed and precision; costs have dropped dramatically, and new materials have increased application flexibility.  Companies are routinely using 3D printing and other additive manufacturing methods to lower development costs and shorten development cycles.  Filament spools now come in a variety of plastics; some with metal and ceramic particles added to allow engineers to tailor properties for performance & testing before committing to high-cost production tooling investments.  Metal and ceramic powder 3D printers can now build parts that could once only be imagined.  What has been the impact on industry?  We look at 3: aerospace, automotive and biomedical applications, and ask: how has additive manufacturing delivered value to date, and what is it likely to offer in the near future?

Join us for a grounded conversation with experts who are actively engaged in next-gen 3D design and manufacturing initiatives.  Learn what your business can do to stay in front of this fast-moving technology.
