ProtoCAM: Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping.

Shaping 2022: “Convergent Futures” at ProtoCAM

January 20, 2022

As we enter 2022, we find ourselves enveloped in an ever-changing climate, present in the additive manufacturing industry and the world at large. This state of affairs reveals a pressing need for global togetherness, mutual understanding, and collaboration across cultures, countries, and individuals. That’s why for 2022, we’re establishing a theme of “Convergent Futures,” a global theme first conceived of by Adweek for this historic time period.


At the top level, convergence is an evolutionary process where two or more living organisms form one interconnected structure…convergence is how we innovate, evolve, and grow.

For ProtoCAM, “Convergent Futures” means collaboration and innovation across communities, mutual regard for sustainability, and shared social responsibility and education through global awareness and cooperation. Throughout 2022 and beyond, we’ll be enacting these ideas right here in the Lehigh Valley as well as regionally, country-wide, and globally as we are able. Our priority is to create a better future for us all through mutual collaboration, and we hope you’ll join us in this initiative.

For now, check out how ProtoCAM and the additive manufacturing industry at large have already undertaken aspects of this initiative within our community and beyond:
