Deploying and Sustaining AM in your Organization
For many applications and industries, the benefits of additive manufacturing are well-defined. Design freedom, flexible manufacturing, hyper personalization to name a few. The temptation is with such well-defined benefits, all it takes to make additive work within a business is to buy a machine and materials. In fact, for additive to be transformational, the entire business must buy into additive; from the boardroom to the factory floor. Spend 60 minutes with Blueprint and you’ll come away armed with the tools you need to adopt additive within your organization.

3D Printing is Additive to Supply Chain Agility
Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, approaches can help reduce risk and restore agility when supported by AI-driven insights. By digitizing traditional manufacturing, introducing dual manufacturing approaches, and building out additive as a platform, manufacturing leaders can deliver the scale and efficiency benefits of global supply chains without being one black swan event away from disaster.

Webinar: Dealing with Unavoidable Inaccuracies in 3D Printing
3D printing has turned the engineering world upside down, enabling previously impossible geometries and collapsing lead times. Something 3D printing is inherently not very good at? Part accuracy. In this first of three webinars on Thinking Additively, David Busacker, engineering consultant from Blueprint, dives deep into some of the unavoidable inaccuracies of 3D printing. He also provides viewers clear tactics on how to deal with these inherent constraints to “digital tooling” in order to design accurate, strong 3D printed parts.
