3D Printing Takes Center Stage at AM3D Conference in Boston, USA

 

“Born in Boston: Local Innovations Shaping the World”

NEW YORK, July 27, 2015 – Digital manufacturing has found a hub in the greater Boston area, as several makers of high-end 3D printers are getting business from regional companies interested in fabricating products on demand.

“We talk every day to companies in the Boston area that are using 3D printing to innovate, replacing week and month-long manufacturing cycles with single-day iterations,” said Ian Ferguson, lead engineer at FormLabs, a Somerville company that designs and markets desktop 3D printers.

Ferguson will be one of three local speakers in “Born in Boston: Local Additive Manufacturing Innovations Shaping the World,” to be held Aug. 4, 2015, at Hynes Convention Center in Boston. “Born in Boston” is part of AM3D, a four-day conference that will explore emerging trends and applications in digital manufacturing and 3D printing. AM3D is sponsored by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Additive manufacturing is impacting local companies such as General Dynamics, Philips Healthcare and Boston Scientific who are applying the powerful capabilities of this emerging technology.

“3D Printing: The Next 25 Years”

The technology started small in the 1980s and few paid much attention.  Three decades later, 3D printing is poised for strong growth and according to a noted expert in the field, could spark the next industrial revolution.

“3D printing is a disruptive technology,” says Hod Lipson, professor of engineering at Columbia University and co-author of the bestselling book, Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing.  “The technology of a machine that can make almost anything has promise – and peril.”

Lipson will speak Aug. 3, 2015, at Hynes Convention Center in Boston.  His presentation, “3D Printing: The Next 25 Years,” will be part of the keynote session at AM3D, a four-day conference exploring emerging trends and applications in digital manufacturing and 3D printing. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers is sponsoring AM3D.
