3D Platform to Lead Discussions at the 2016 AMUG Conference

3D Platform brings live, ongoing demonstrations of the 3DP Workbench and five 3D printing education sessions to the 2016 AMUG Conference

Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) is an independent, industry-wide users group that gives its members a forum for learning, information exchange, and establishing professional connections. The cornerstone of AMUG’s offerings is the annual conference. Since 2011, the AMUG Conference has become a place where owners and operators of all commercial additive manufacturing technologies get together and exchange ideas and experiences in technical sessions, workshops and casual conversations.

This year’s AMUG Conference will be held April 3 -7, at the St.Louis Union Station. As a proud Platinum Sponsor, 3D Platform will have live, ongoing demonstrations of the 3DP Workbench and five 3D printing education sessions focusing on various aspects of large format 3D printing throughout the event.

If you are attending the AMUG Conference, be sure to check out our conference tracks and schedule a one-on-one discussion with us.

We hope to see you in St. Louis!
