3Diligent to Present Next Week on Metal Printing and Economics of 3D Printing at ID&E Show in Cleveland and and Exhibit at TCT-RAPID in Pittsburgh

Company Will Also Showcase its Available Technologies and Materials

Los Angeles, Calif. – May 4, 20173Diligent announced today that it will be participating in two major industrial design and manufacturing shows in the Midwest next week.

3Diligent’s CEO, Cullen Hilkene, will first present at the Industrial Design and Engineering Show (ID&E) co-located at the IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo, taking place May 8-10 at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.  ID&E brings together design engineers, plant managers and the top companies and engineering firms to learn and exchange application methods for the latest emerging technologies.

On Tuesday May 9, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm, Hilkene will present “Making the Most of Metal Printing.” The session will speak to different metal printing processes and relevant tradeoffs between them.  The session will also take time to explore non-metal processes, the economic considerations surrounding purchasing machines vs. sourcing parts from contract manufacturers, and findings from 3Diligent’s State of Professional and Industrial 3D Printing Special Report.  Audience participants will leave the presentation with a clearer sense of the state of the 3D printing market and equipped with the know-how to save time and money by utilizing the right 3D printing technology and sourcing approach for their project needs.

“There are so many emerging 3D Printing solutions that it can be difficult to understand tradeoffs and make informed investments,” said Hilkene. “We look forward to sharing perspective from our experience supporting a wide variety of customer projects and our recent market study.”

During the same week, 3Diligent will showcase its web interface and capabilities at the RAPID + TCT 2017 Conference, happening May 8-11 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh. RAPID + TCT is North America’s preeminent event for discovery, innovation, and networking in 3D manufacturing. 3Diligent will be located in booth 949.  In the booth, 3Diligent team members will be displaying parts from a number of its rapid manufacturing technologies – including HP’s recently released Jet Fusion printer – and fielding questions.
