Webinar: Getting Started with Additive Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing (AM) has been around for a few decades, but it is still far from mainstream adoption. However, recent advances in software, hardware and services have led to an uptake in the use of the technology.

While AM isn’t going to replace conventional manufacturing anytime soon, there are scenarios and applications where it is more advantageous to make a part additively than with traditional methods. Unfortunately, the industry is fragmented and there are gaps in the AM workflow.

Efforts are being undertaken to bridge these gaps and make it easier for the user to evaluate and adopt AM. Join us for an overview of the industry, how to get started, and how to prepare your organization to get the maximum benefit from AM.

During this webinar you will learn:
  • Where AM is useful and what advantage it has over traditional manufacturing.
  • How an organization can start with AM, including what the considerations and challenges are, and what skillsets are needed.
  • How to bridge the gap between design and AM.
