Title: Additive Manufacturing
Abstract: Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a process that build parts directly from the digital geometry file in a layer by layer approach. This is advantageous in creating complex geometrical features in parts without investing in tooling. The additive manufacturing processes are making improvements in speed and materials. This talk will review the major technological advancements in additive manufacturing in the past few years and outline the research opportunities to come.
