8:45 a.m. Keynote: Connecting Additive Manufacturing to Metalforming
Additive manufacturing can be used either as an alternate means of manufacturing or as a means of supplementing or enabling well-established methods. Both will be reviewed in the context of case studies. The results of a project studying the deformation of polymer tooling produced via fused deposition modeling will be discussed in detail. Factors affecting cost and delivery will be presented.
