Oct. 6, 2021
A conversation on the state of additive manufacturing.

The factory of the future will be a blend of traditional manufacturing and additive manufacturing. In fact, additive manufacturing is on track to take one percentage point of the $250-350 billion dollar manufacturing market by complementing existing technologies with additional capabilities.

In this podcast, we examine the big picture of additive manufacturing, the value it can bring to your organization, the best ways to start your additive manufacturing journey, and how additive manufacturing can improve your competitive advantage. This conversation is a ‘state of the union’ for additive manufacturing. We examine where the industry is right now, how additive manufacturing can immediately meet industry needs, and the future integration of additive manufacturing into the traditional manufacturing market.
