This week, from February 6-8, the 7th annual Additive Manufacturing Strategies (AMS) event will take place. Produced by and Additive Manufacturing Research (AMR), this is the only 3D printing conference in New York City, and welcomes AM stakeholders from all over the world. Over 100 speakers will give keynotes and talks, or participate in panel discussions and roundtables, about the most critical topics in the fast-growing AM industry.

In our Poll of the Week, we decided to ask our LinkedIn followers which topic at AMS 2024 they were looking forward to the most. While a wide variety of topics and applications will be discussed, you only get four choices for LinkedIn polls. These were:

  • Software
  • Large-Format AM & Construction
  • 3D Printed Electronics
  • AM in Transportation

Out of 84 votes, “Large-Format AM & Construction” won; you can see the full breakdown below.
