The AMUG Conference is open to companies and individuals with direct ownership of commercially available additive manufacturing equipment. Attendees will have access to users from all over the world with 25+ years of experience in the industry, while attending in-depth educational and training sessions by additive manufacturing industry experts and OEM representatives.

AMUG is working closely with the Hilton Orlando, state agencies and local officials to ensure that this in-person event adheres to safety protocols related to COVID-19. In addition, AMUG is working with an industry consultant for guidance and advice on all necessary safety precautions pertaining to live conferences and events. Attendance will be limited to a capacity allowed by the Hilton Orlando, City of Orlando, and the State of Florida to reflect social distancing requirements, and organizers continue to monitor recommendation from local health authorities, the World Health Organization (WHO), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for group meetings and events. In compliance with health and safety recommendations, AMUG has created a guide for attendees discussing occupancy levels, face coverings, social distancing, cleaning protocols, and other important information.

AMUG is a global community focused on accelerating the education and advancement of additive manufacturing and 3D printing. AMUG’s objectives are to encourage affective communication of information exchange amongst all additive manufacturing equipment owners and operators; provide a forum for presentations of papers and the ability to network with colleagues; propose solutions to problems that involve basic modification to hardware or software; and provide an open atmosphere for technology exchange.

At the 2018 AMUG conference, ProtoCAM won first place in the conference’s Technical Competition in the “Advanced Concepts” category for our collaborative project with Langhorne Carpet Company. To learn more and register for the conference, visit
