Industry experts are projecting worldwide sales of Additive Manufactured products and services to reach 8.8 billion in 2017 and up to $50 billion between 2020 and 2031. If you are a manufacturing organization invested in or looking to invest in Additive Manufacturing, then understanding the design process is a critical step for successful implementation on the shop floor.

Join us on April 5, 2017 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Knoxville, TN for SME's Smart Manufacturing Series - "Design for Additive Manufacturing" seminar and hear/learn from leading Additive Manufacturing experts on how they are designing specifically for Additive Manufacturing including producing parts for real-time applications.

  • Presentations focus on: Design considerations, topology optimization and when to use Additive versus traditional manufacturing
  • Hear technical, in-depth discussions on how designers and engineers are reconfiguring their approach to problem solving through the physical expression of complex geometry
  • Gain a better understanding of Additive Manufacturing's potential, including how your business can prepare and advance your manufacturing operations and participate in the this explosive growth
