Product Description

Understand 3D Printing and Deploy It, Successfully, for Target Applications

The 3D printing landscape is simply too big, too diverse and moving too rapidly to have much hope for significant success without a clear roadmap and a team for support. Complicating matters is the fact that the body of knowledge needed for success is extensive and still evolving. The result  is that many in 3D printing are overwhelmed, confused and concerned.

For those embarking on an 3D printing initiative (beyond a low-cost desktop unit for simple models), or struggling to get the most from the technology, confused by the glowing rhetoric, or simply overwhelmed by all of the options, this session with additive manufacturing consultant Todd Grimm will offer answers. Todd will make the case for team building, illustrate how to find good application, and challenge the unrecognized prejudices that stymie the application of the technology, supported with simple, practical guidance.

Todd will help you in understanding new approaches, news ways of thinking and alternative approaches that will improve the odds of 3D printing success. A subordinate benefit of this session is that you will discover that you are in the majority if you are still trying to find 3D printing success and are confused by all of the options. You will walk away with an understanding of how to tackle 3D printing and deploy it, successfully, for target applications. You will also be armed with evidence that supports the need for resources and change within the company. Upon the backbone created in this session, you will then be able to modify the approach to meet your specific needs and constraints.

Session Highlights

  • 3D printing status: why most SMEs are overwhelmed and confused
  • Team structure: the 3 critical roles to fill
  • Tiger teams: why they are needed to combat the knowledge gap
