About Additive Talks

Additve Talks is another approach to delivering 3D Printing/AM Resources.  Organized by 3D ADEPT Media, this day brings together additive manufacturing players and experts from vertical industries so that they can exchange on various topics. 

Most AM users and future users of the technology usually have a holistic approach in their way to discovering and further expanding their knowledge about additive manufacturing. This approach often includes in-person exchanges during events or analysis from various companies' ontents/experiences.

Those who are familiar with our digital and print magazine, 3D ADEPT Mag know that a similar approach is leveraged to address most of our dossiers.  For us, an in-depth understanding of a topic requires the confrontation of different ideas, experiences and expertises.

With that in mind - but also because these unprecedented times make it difficult to exchange ideas in person -, 3D ADEPT Media has imagined another way to give the industry access to 3D printing/AM resources. This way is Additive-Talks.

Panel discussion 1: Digitalisation and distributed manufacturing: how important are they for additive manufacturing?

The recent months have proven out the essential role of digitalization in all industries. At the manufacturing level, it’s been a few years now that the issue has come through the pipeline. However, as the need of relocating manufacturing is currently a global issue, it’s time to understand and overcome the challenges raised by digitalization in the effective implementation of this business model.
