Are You Ready for the 3D Printing Revolution?

3D printing will change the way we produce everything--from automobiles to prosthetics to food. And it's changing the way we do business, in every industry from high tech to healthcare.

Rock Stars of 3D Printing Conference 2014 glasses ears bunnies

These high-level, one-day discussions aimed at business as well as technology leaders will empower attendees to understand what's next in today's most important technologies.

Only 30 percent of American companies have even begun the move to additive manufacturing – the phenomenon called 3D printing – and yet, this revolutionary technology will –

  • Change the way we produce EVERYTHING from automobiles to prosthetics to food
  • Make possible the production of things barely imagined – like replication of human body parts
  • Restore "on-shore" manufacturing
  • Dramatically reduce costs
  • Phenomenally reduce waste and the cost of energy
  • Place "manufacturing" in the hands of every individual
  • Exponentially increase innovation

Every company needs to prepare and implement 3D printing in order to remain relevant in their industry! No one can sit this phenomenon out! And every company must deal with the challenges to safety, security, ownership, and other issues which 3D printing presents. Get ready at Rock Stars of 3D Printing, a one-day event featuring the experts, early adopters, and visionaries that are driving this revolution.

Morning session
8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Dr. Amir Dorafshar
Co-Director of Facial Transplantation Program
Johns Hopkins
Virtual Surgical Planning in Craniofacial Surgery
The application of computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) in medicine is evolving. This talk highlights the use of this technology in the medical field with an emphasis on craniofacial surgery. Representative clinical cases, including the most extensive facial transplantation to date, will be discussed to demonstrate the benefits of 3D printing in the medical field.


Jesse Harrington Au
Chief Maker Advocate
Autodesk
The Future of How Things Are Made
The new Industrial Revolution, centered around additive manufacturing, is revolutionizing the way we look at design. The next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs are accessing software and tools that their professional counterparts have not yet caught up to using. This talk will explore the new innovation landscape as it pertains to consumer and young inventors and the tools currently accessible to them. Autodesk's 123D family of products is bringing the lab into the living room. We will explore what is being created and what will be coming next in this truly disruptive movement of makers.


Paul Brody
VP & Global Industry Leader of Electronics
IBM
The Emerging Software Defined Supply Chain
The global supply chain, and our model of manufacturing and investment, have historically been shaped by physical constraints on lead time, scale, and pursuit of economies scale. The result has been supply chains that are big (for scale), global (to pursue low costs), and complex (as they integrate multiple layers of suppliers). Additive manufacturing, open source design, and a new generation of robotics are erasing such physical constraints and replacing them with software-defined approaches that will not just change how we manufacture, but what and where. IBM has built an economic model of these changes and used them to forecast the future of the global supply chain.


Hugh Evans
Vice President, Corporate Development and Ventures
3D Systems
Manufacturing the Future
3D Systems created SLA, the first 3D printing technology, over 31 years ago, making them an expert resource to examine the promise and peril of additive manufacturing today. Hugh Evans will discuss trends in technology and materials and examine advanced manufacturing in key verticals such as healthcare, aerospace, and transportation. His presentation of case studies and specific applications will explore the potential of 3D printing to re-localize manufacturing and create vibrant 3D manufacturing communities.

Panel discussion

Afternoon session
3:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

Christine Furstoss
Global Technology Director of Manufacturing & Materials Technologies
GE
Additive Manufacturing for Industrial Growth — Transformational Opportunities...and Challenges
Additive manufacturing, including 3D printing, presents transformational opportunities for industrial companies to drive innovation through new designs and services, faster prototyping and manufacturing, distributed networks, and new ecosystems. While companies are beginning to take advantage of this, new challenges must also be addressed. These include the need for new and more robust control systems, feedback loops, inspection and sensor technologies and stronger integration of software for both design and manufacturing. In this talk, Christine will discuss these opportunities and challenges; a true convergence of the digital and physical worlds.


Cliff Waldman
Council Director and Senior Economist
Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation
3-D Printing as a Driver of New Regional Economies
This discussion places the 3-D phenomenon in the context of U.S. efforts to build competitive manufacturing clusters that leverage unique strengths of regional economies. Cliff offers his thoughts on the role that states and regional authorities should play in facilitating the use of 3-D and other new technologies as well as in investing for continued technological innovation. He also addresses how 3-D might create manufacturing entrepreneurship in rural areas, a concern amidst rapid urbanization.


Brian David Johnson
Futurist and Director, Future Casting and Experience Research
Intel
21st Century Robot
What would it really be like to live with robots? What if building and programming a robot was as easy assembling a desk or downloading an app? Join futurist Brian David Johnson and discover the world of 21st Century Robot. These open-source, 3D printed robots are not only changing how the world designs, builds and programs bots but they are changing how we imagine the future we will live in.
