Morning Keynote
Metal Additive Manufacturing – It’s here. It’s not just hype. It’s in planes. It’s in bodies. It’s in production! Unlike the plastics side of 3D printing metal additive manufacturing has progressed well beyond just prototyping and tooling applications. The largest organizations in both the aerospace and medical implant markets have embraced metal AM for flight critical parts and for in-body implants in true production settings. Learn what’s actually happening today that is having a significant impact on Fortune 1000 aerospace company’s manufacturing capabilities as well as understand how metal AM is positively effecting people’s lives and health through advancements with technologies like EBM.

The Future of 3D Content Creating and discovering 3D content today is easier than ever before. Basic 3D design software has become so intuitive that first graders know how to use it, and new technologies such as 3D scanning, 3D cameras and virtual reality are further driving the proliferation of 3D content. MakerBot realized early on that the future of 3D printing is closely tied to the ability to design, share, and discover 3D objects. Thingiverse today is the world’s largest online 3D design community and has become the go-to place on the Internet for 3D content. What makes Thingiverse special is the active community of contributors behind it. Join MakerBot CEO Jonathan Jaglom as he discusses key elements that will shape the future of 3D content and why he thinks software and app developers will play a crucial role.

The Next Frontier in 3D Printing Interest and excitement surrounding additive manufacturing and 3D printing—terms that are used interchangeably—are at an all time high. Countless corporations, government agencies, and investors are hard at work trying to predict where it is headed. Some believe it could become the next “big thing” as new markets develop and the technology matures.

Metal Keynote Panel
The Future of Metal AM: Delivering on the Promise 3D printing has had a number of false starts breaking out from prototyping to the manufacturing of actual parts. Join us as we discuss the promises of one of hottest technologies in 3D printing today, Metal AM, and its application to the manufacturing of end parts. We will discuss where the technology is, the technological developments on the horizon and the industries are leading its adoption. We’ll also attempt to shed some light of the challenges facing the pioneers using this technology, especially the challenges around controlling end part cost and quality – bottom line, manufacturing is all about part cost and quality.

Frontier Tech Startup Showdown
This year’s Inside 3D Printing Startup Competition and RoboGameChanger will be housed together for the first time in the Frontier Tech StartupShowdown. The Frontier Tech Startup Showdown, sponsored by Asimov Ventures, brings together top startups in 3D Printing, Robotics, and Virtual Reality to crown the winner of a $15,000 Uncapped SAFE courtesy of Asimov Ventures. Past winners have collectively raised over $21 million, with the average winner raising more than $3.5 million in subsequent financing. The competition takes place Tuesday, April 12 from 11:45am to 12:45pm. The competition will feature 8-10 qualified startups featuring a range of technologies and applications. Audience attendance is included with any registration category for Inside 3D Printing.

Digital Manufacturing and The Next Industrial Revolution Come 2025, it’s predicted that half of the world’s population will live in a city. This combined with a trend toward hyper localization and the need to reduce environmental waste derived from shipping goods worldwide will drive the next industrial revolution. The rate of innovation of 3D printing technology over the last 10 years has not been very high. This won’t be true much longer. With several large companies and startups working on the next generation of machines, we’ll start solving some fundamental problems. And as 3D printing evolves, it will be used to de-centralize manufacturing and completely revolutionize it. In fact, it’s already starting to happen.

3:00pm – 3:30pm

Keynote
The Death of Manufacturing As computers fabricate more and more objects, capital will usurp labor. Follow this trend to its natural conclusion, and people, simply put, will no longer participate in making goods. But as manufacturing as we know it dies—and the techniques we use to deploy software are adapted to deploy matter—profound new business opportunities will emerge. Come discuss them with us.
