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 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.

The Cloud Infrastructure of the 3D Printing Industry
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.
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.
