IDTechEx to host webinar called The Future of 3D Printing on 14th August
IDTechEx, leading analysts of emerging technology markets, are hosting a free webinar on Thursday 14th August 2014 entitled “The Future of 3D Printing“. It will be presented by Dr Jon Harrop, Director of IDTechEx, who is responsible for heading IDTechEx’s research and reports on 3D Printing.
Hyped as the technology to bring about a 3rd industrial revolution, 3D printing technologies were in fact invented in the late 1980s. With steady and unspectacular growth until after 2009 when changes occurred which saw the fortunes of the 3D printing world take an abrupt up-turn. Growth is being driven by a number of factors including improved awareness and falling prices of printers and materials. In fact, the materials market is possibly the most contentious issue in the industry today.
This webinar will cover the following research from the IDTechEx 3D printing reports:
• Review of current 3D printing processes and materials.
• Current trends in 3D printing.
• Forthcoming 3D printing technologies.
• Emerging applications of 3D printing.
• Market forecasts.
There are two identical sessions taking place on Thursday 14th August:
Those who wish to attend are free to join whichever session is most convenient, but space is limited so please register soon.
Cambridge, UK, based IDTechEx have been following emerging technologies for 15 years. Along with research reports covering 3D printing and allied technologies, we also host the 3D Printing LIVE! events – the next one of which is taking place on 19th–20th November in Santa Clara, CA, USA.
