Featuring Hod Lipson, professor of mechanical engineering at Columbia University.

Discover the ENGINEERING behind Additive Manufacturing & 3D printing.

ASME's Additive Manufacturing + 3D Printing Conference & Expo (AM3D), is designed specifically for the Engineering community. We've customized a program around the product development process to highlight issues, challenges, and solutions associated with every step of the AM lifecycle.

Conference Highlights Include:

Three-days of keynote talks, technical presentations, panel sessions and peer-to-peer interaction.

Workshops: Take your AM skillset to the next level.

  • Design for AM Workshop: Learn the fundamentals for successful AM optimized design.
  • Topology Optimization Workshop: Develop your skills on how to use this cutting edge technology to rethink your next product design. Put your knowledge to test in the post-workshop design completion.
  • Understanding MBD and MBE: Realizing the Promise of 3D Workshop: This workshop will present an overview of 3D Model-Based Definition (MBD) in the context of a Model-Based Enterprise (MBE).
  • Simulation for AM Design Workshop: This workshop will review how to apply simulation tools to evaluate AM part designs.

AM at the DoD Sessions: Discover how AM is impacting defense technologies and supply chain.

Mix and Mingle:

  • NASCAR Reception: Experience an interactive, entertainment attraction honoring the history and heritage of stock car racing at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Countless networking opportunities: AM3D’s co-location with the IDETC/CIE conference allows you to connect with leading experts and suppliers from industry, government, and researchers from the entire product design and additive manufacturing technology development curve.
