“For more than 30 years, AM has experienced dynamic growth that continues to unlock unlimited potential for manufacturers,” says Robert Willig, SME executive director and chief executive officer. “RAPID + TCT has defined and established a field that conceives, tests, improves and manufactures new products that are not only more cost-efficient, but are truly lifechanging. We can feel the support and excitement within the AM community from far and wide, and we’re looking forward to another successful event.”

Presented concurrently with RAPID + TCT 2022: SME’s Bright Minds program, which includes a Student Summit and the AM Career Forum. The program will include a Technology Playground designed to engage high school students with 3D printing technologies by delivering student-centric programming with demonstrations and activities from AM-solution providers. The AM Career Forum has two components: one level for high school students to explore different universities, and another for postsecondary and graduate students, as well as emerging professionals, to explore careers with AM companies.
