Additive Manufacturing (AM) has become a global buzzword . Often referred to by the more sensational-sounding name of 3D printing, additive manufacturing has been around for at least three decades. It has tremendous potential to be used in a variety of sectors. Recent advances in AM technology has seen its use become far more widespread and it offers exciting possibilities for future development. At present, organizations are mostly using it for prototyping and initial testing purposes, however with recent advances in software, hardware and services, there has been an uptake in the use of AM.
So how does one take advantage of everything AM has to offer? Join Nihal Velpanur, CAD Product Manager for the Creo portfolio at PTC, for an overview of the industry, how to get started, and how to prepare your organization to get the maximum benefit from AM. In this webinar, you will learn:
- Where AM is useful and what advantage it has over traditional manufacturing.
- How an organization can start with AM, including what the considerations and challenges are, and what skillsets are needed.
- How to bridge the gap between design and AM.
Nihal Velpanur has a strong background in AM, as a founding member of the desktop 3D printing company Brahma3 and through researching the AM industry for the last four years. This includes studying the trends, technologies, business models, and implications on strategy and competition. Nihal earned a Master’s degree in Engineering Management from Dartmouth College.
