Inside 3D Printing—Dec 2016
During this year's Inside 3D Printing event in San Diego, Principal and Co-Founder Rich Stump will be leading a workshop discussion about "The Opportunity with Direct Digital Manufacturing." The session will be held on December 13 during the afternoon. What's the workshop all about? 3D printing is often thought of only during the prototyping phase of product development, but designers and engineers should expect more from the additive technologies and materials available today. By embracing a direct digital manufacturing (DDM) strategy, companies are driving greater innovation, mitigating risk, lowering costs, and gaining agility. DDM enables design freedom, reduces lead times, and allows for more decentralized production, which will have significant impacts on communities across the globe.
Ultimately, less rigid development and manufacturing means that more optimized, customized, and specialized products suddenly become viable as the barriers of scale are torn down. In this workshop, Rich Stump of FATHOM discusses why companies are opting for tool-less manufacturing for end-use products with real world application examples.
The annual 3D printing-focused event includes a keynote with Terry Wohlers, panel discussions with industry experts, an exhibit hall of sponsors, and workshops with medical, metal, business, and manufacturing focuses.
