This webinar will explore the 30+ year additive manufacturing (AM) industry history. It was not that long ago that the AM “industry” was just a handful of folks in a room sharing ideas. Through the hard work and vision of the technology’s early adopters, however, the AM industry has blossomed over the past three decades. We are at a fortunate time in the industry’s history in that most of the industry’s early founders are still around to tell their stories. Come hear historical perspectives and stories from three people who helped shape the industry into what it is today: Terry Wohlers, Brent Stucker, and Jason Jones.
Attendees of this webinar can expect to:
- Learn how the industry came to be
- Hear interesting anecdotes and stories about some key moments that shaped the industry
- Gain perspective on where the industry is going and how it may affect you
