Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing…Opportunity or Threat
Will the claims of a looming industrial revolution become a reality? Will mass customization become the norm? Will the consumer become the manufacturer? Will additive manufacturing displace traditional manufacturing processes?

Join our panel of experts to discover what the future holds for additive manufacturing and learn how to capitalize on the technology while preparing for the future. Our panelists, representing aerospace, education and contract manufacturing, will field your questions so that you can separate fact from fiction and hype from reality.
