It’s no secret that 3D printing is making incredible progress in many industries including healthcare, automotive and aerospace. Industrial printers have been used for prototyping and modeling for years, and these industries are quickly progressing towards 3D printing final products.

Several factors are driving this forward: design capabilities are continuing to improve specifically for 3D printing; high quality 3D printers becoming more affordable and easier to use; and the material selection is growing to address the specific needs of different industries.

Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016

In a couple weeks, I will be traveling to Amsterdam to take part in Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016  with Ultimaker. The 3-day event brings together the latest technologies from the leading additive manufacturing suppliers, and promises to not only highlight global trends and technologies, but also give attendees the opportunity to see them in action.

I’m most looking forward to the:

  • Q&As
  • Workshops
  • Case studies
  • Networking
  • Live demonstrations

Whether you’re interested in design, materials, prototyping or manufacturing, 3D printing tells the best story through live demonstrations, and we’re certain #additivemfg won’t disappoint.

The Discov3ry Complete

We’re very excited to be part of the Ultimaker story with the Discov3ry Complete, and will be printing with silicone at their Booth #600. The fully integrated system allows you to switch between plastic filament and paste materials seamlessly increasing the print opportunities of the desktop 3D printer.  

If you’re planning to attend Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016, be sure to swing by the Ultimaker booth to see the Discov3ry Complete it in action. We’ll also be posting on Twitter and Instagram throughout the conference for anyone who’s unable to attend in person.
