According to our latest surveys’ results, both industry representatives and academia deemed the ability to think in 3D as an essential skill for Additive Manufacturing workers. A well-designed part, in fact, not only displays engineering innovation and creativity, but also reduces material waste, time and labor. The session encourages the audience to consider that design is an important lifelong and transferrable skill that should be promoted in the Additive Manufacturing sector as a technology enabler.
The webinar will also present a real-case application of the ability to think in 3D as well as the training offers that are currently available to AM professionals or students.
