August 21, 2018: TekTalk on Tap: 3D Printing Beyond Prototyping – Appleton, WI

Traditional approaches to manufacturing are no longer the only way you have to bring your product to market. It’s time to think differently about manufacturing. In the era of Industry 4.0, manufacturing with additive opens new doors. Shave days off production cycles. Remove complexity from final assembly. Produce lightweight, high-strength structures. Create hyper-realistic prototypes. Be more competitive than ever before.
