What products and/or services will you be showcasing at Additive Manufacturing Americas 2017?
Stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS) and metal additive manufacturing systems and parts services.

What influenced your decision to exhibit at Additive Manufacturing Americas 2017?
The opportunity to deliver our solutions and technologies to a key target audience.

What do you consider to be the key potential for OEMs adopting or optimizing the use of 3D printing/AM and advanced design and manufacturing technologies, and how is your company positioning itself to realize this potential?
We make 3D production real using our portfolio of engineering software, industrial additive solutions and materials, along with the unparalleled expertise of our applications and research teams. This unique combination delivers the critical difference for customers to successfully integrate additive into their production processes.

What in your opinion will be the next big advance for 3D printing/AM?
The next big advance in the industry is the evolution of very rapid, accurate 3D printing to enable ‘digital molding’ on the shop floor, in a tool-free environment.

If you could say one thing to convince OEMs to embrace 3D printing/AM and the ecosystem of allied technologies, what would it be?
Additive manufacturing is changing the way companies are producing parts, revolutionizing supply chain processes and enabling mass custom manufacturing.
