The University of Texas at El Paso hosted the ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence's third workshop on additive manufacturing (AM) technologies Monday, Feb. 10, 2020, in Union Building East.
The workshop was open to additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, professionals in industry (aerospace, medical, automotive, energy, and defense), academia, and government agency representatives who wanted to learn about the latest 3D printing standardized practices, and the research and development initiatives that drive towards standard development.
Attendees gained a deeper understanding of the entire 3D printing process chain and receive extremely valuable information to keep pace with rapidly growing 3D printing technologies. The workshop comprised multiple interactive sessions offered by 3D printing industry experts that will allow participants to indulge in fruitful discussions and to understand more about the best standardization practices.
This workshop was the third offering from ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence’s Education & Workforce Development (E&WD) Program, which provides training opportunities for various levels of the 3D printing workforce.
