The AMUG Conference brings together engineers, designers, managers, and educators from around the world to share expertise, best practices, challenges, and application developments in additive manufacturing. The agenda for this year’s conference includes keynote presentations, technical sessions, workshops, panels, the Technical Competition, the Innovator Showcase, the AMUGexpo, and more.

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.

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. In 2021, we were runner-up in the Advanced Finishing category for our “Under the Sea” piece. Both Belknap and Graham have been honored with the Distinguished INnovator Operators Award (DINO) through the AMUG conference in the past for their contributions to the additive manufacturing industry and years of hands-on work with an AM technology.

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.
