Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo Oakland, CA — FATHOM™, the San Francisco Bay Area's largest 3D printing and rapid prototype production center and top performing Stratasys 3D printer distributor of Northern California and Pacific Northwest, will join fellow innovators and industry leaders in Silicon Valley at the Inside 3D Printing Conference Expo this month.
The event, hosted by Mediabistro September 17 and 18 in San Jose, will highlight the current and future impact of 3D printing, as well as its applications and services with leading industry experts.
FATHOM™, ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the top 500 most rapidly expanding private companies in the United States, will be showcasing case studies, production center services, and live machine demonstrations at the upcoming Northern California conference, which also recently took place in New York City and Chicago attracting thousands of attendees.
"3D printing as an industry is advancing at a breakneck pace, so it's critical to stay informed and in touch with what's going on," says FATHOM™ Principal Rich Stump, who founded the company in 2008 with Michelle Mihevc. "We're thrilled to be part of a trade show dedicated solely to the advancements in our field. As a product development company and 3D printing specialist that helps thinkers and makers transform their ideas into physical form, FATHOM™ works with some of the most innovative companies on the market. We look forward to making new connections and sharing industry knowledge with the many attendees at this show."
The B2B expo will feature two full days of conference sessions, giving the public a venue to learn about this fast growing field, what investment opportunities exist, and how it affects other industries.
Additive manufacturing is increasingly changing the way we eat, drive, build, fly and live, which is why the event will be well-attended by leading entrepreneurs, educators, engineers, architects, medical design experts, fashion reps, culinary innovators, and other professionals, notes Mediabistro.
Featured speakers will discuss the way 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing sector and how 3D printing impacts the future of medical research. Stratasys founder S. Scott Crump, who has served as Chairman of the Board since the company's inception, will deliver a keynote on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), which he invented.
Additional panels include "The 10 Principles of 3D Printing," "Leveraging 3D Printing through Innovative Design for Space Exploration," and "The Promise of Distributed Manufacturing."
CNET lauded the event for bringing the 3D printing sector front and center, giving the industry its own much-needed platform.
"After years of being lumped in with other maker-oriented technologies, 3D printing finally has its own professional conference," the manufacturing trade journal wrote back in April, during the inaugural 3D printing expo in New York City.
"So much is going on in the world of 3D printing that the industry needs its own stage," he says. "And what better place to host the inaugural West Coast event than in Silicon Valley, the beating heart of the technology sector?"
