1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time

Over the past couple of years we have heard the hype for additive manufacturing and 3D printing. Vendors and OEMS have touted the benefits: geometric complexity…for free!, fast turnaround, mass customization, cost and weight reduction, localized production. Dozens of machines have emerged, along with hundreds of materials options, making it even harder for users, product designers/developers, engineers or service bureaus to decide what platform to use to optimally print a project… consistently.

In this webinar, 7 seasoned users of 3D printing, with dozens of years of experience in total, will talk about the work day reality behind the hype: the various hidden surprises, limitations on different platforms and materials, design challenges, post-fabrication issues.  We will debate the pros and cons of industrial vs. desktop printers. We will discuss different platforms for different applications, practical tips and shortcuts for making the most of your 3D printer investment. This webinar will focus primarily on the printers using plastic resins for prototyping or short runs.

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $50 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
