Todd Grimm has been working in AM and 3D Printing for 30 years. He has done a lot of work for Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG), and is a frequent guest speaker at conferences. So, naturally, we spoke about the conferences in the COVID-19 era. As a team, we even developed an exciting new conference idea.
We also looked at the past of the industry. Grimm’s work as a consultant has given him a lot of different viewpoints on and through our industry. Grimm was reserved and weighed his thoughtful responses. Grimm was asked by Max what he got completely wrong and right in his predictions in the past, which he duly and bravely answered.
Grimm also spoke about what has changed in the industry, how important software is, and how the market has evolved. Grimm wowed us with his deep radio voice, but, more importantly, with a great deal of insight, as well. We were challenged and this brought up a lot of new thoughts and ideas. This felt like a fireside conversation and Max and I enjoyed it immensely. We hope that you do as well!
