Catch ProtoCAM at the upcoming Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Conference March 19 – 23, 2017, in Chicago! 

Our Engineering Manager, Ed Graham, will give a presentation at the conference discussing post-processing and finishing. “One common misunderstanding regarding 3D printing is the perception that parts are printed, then removed from the printer and put into use,” Graham notes. Graham’s presentation will include information about post-processing associated with SLA, SLS, FDM, and PolyJet technologies.

ProtoCAM will also participate in the conference’s Technical Competition, entering a piece called Reflections which is designed by artist Heather Gorham. The AMUG Technical Competition provides a forum for users of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies to display their unique applications as well as their finishing capabilities.

The scope of the conference has widened for this year’s iteration, with new technologies and fields represented. Users of all levels are welcome at this event, as the various sessions and learning opportunities will appeal to novice, intermediate, and expert users of AM technologies. Attendees can expect to learn, exchange ideas, and build their professional networks while attending presentations, workshops, and competitions about the latest products and solutions available in the industry.

The AMUG Conference provides in-depth education and training sessions by AM industry experts and representatives.  Individuals from all over the world will attend the annual conference to exchange ideas, learn new tips and tricks, and ask questions of other users.

For an even closer look at the latest technologies in the AM field, the AMUGexpo will be open the first two evenings of the conference. At the expo, experts in the field will display their products and services, allowing conference attendees to check out the latest developments in 3D printing, stereolithography, laser sintering, PolyJet, fused deposition modeling, and other systems.

AMUG is a global community focused on accelerating the education and advancement of additive manufacturing and 3D Printing. 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.
