Are You Ready for the 3D Printing Takeover?
There's no turning back; the future of advanced design and manufacturing is taking shape and 3D printing is in the front seat. We're not talking 10, or even five years down the road — major overhauls in the industry are happening right now. At ADM Montréal we're highlighting this critical and pervasive topic so you can walk away fully prepared for this manufacturing mainstay.
Did you know, that by 2021:*
- 75% of new commercial and military aircraft will fly with 3D-printed engine, airframe, and other components
- 25% of surgeons will practice on 3D-printed models of the patient prior to surgery
- 20% of the world's top 100 consumer goods companies will use 3D printing to create custom products
- 20% of enterprises will establish internal startups to develop new 3D print-based products and services
- 40% of manufacturing enterprises will establish 3D printing centers of excellence

Why Advanced Topology Optimization, Generative Design, & 3D Printing Will Change Aerospace Manufacturing Forever
Wednesday, November 14, 12:30 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Aviation fuel prices continue to skyrocket, and carriers are raising fees everywhere they can. But what if there was something else they could do to cut costs? Luckily, there is. Airplanes are heavy—so much so that United changing to a thinner paper stock for its in-flight magazines saved almost $300,000 a year in fuel. This session will cover additional lightweighting strategies, from topology optimization to biomimicry. We'll discuss what has been done previously, and what the future holds for both polymers and metals.

Panel: The Impact of 3D Printing in Manufacturing
Wednesday, November 14, 3:00 p.m. - 3:55 p.m.
The 3D printing industry has evolved significantly over the last few years, and it may be an even more disruptive force in manufacturing in years to come. Recent developments in additive manufacturing have been driven by the introduction of better, faster and more capable machines and a range of new materials has been extended. However, with the newer technologies comes automation and integration into the existing soon-to-be digital supply chain. How will 3D printing streamline the pre and post production process? How will 3D printing technology integrate with hardware, software and service providers to compliment traditional manufacturing?
