"NAUD 2014 exceeded our expectations with more than 500 attendees who learned about the advancements in industrial 3D printing technology. IMTS represents the traditional subtractive manufacturing community, which are the future users of additive manufacturing, so NAUD is a great place to bring both together since we know that both need to coexist in the marketplace and on the plant floor." - Andrew Snow, Senior Vice President, EOS of North America, Inc.
