Share this Article

This week, from February 6-8, the 7th annual Additive Manufacturing Strategies (AMS) event will take place. Produced by 3DPrint.com 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.

Large-Format AM & Construction

The winning topic will actually take place on the first day of the conference, in the second session of the Growth Strategies: Production vertical. Mark Douglass, Business Development Manager at Lincoln Electric Additive Solutions, will get things started with a keynote on the “Latest in Codes and Standards for Wire DED.” Lawrence Gasman, Founder of AM Research, will moderate a panel on “Large-Format Metal AM” with panelists Nick Estock, VP of Business Development, AddUp; Co-Founder and CEO of FormAlloy Melanie Lang; and Jason Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies.

A second panel, “Additive Manufacturing in Construction,” will be moderated by Stephan Mansour, Additive Construction Specialist, Wohlers Associates, powered by ASTM International; the panelists are Vincent Albanese, Manager of Strategic Partnership – North America, COBOD International, and Megan Krieger, Program Manager – Additive Construction, Manufacturing – Mechanical Engineer (MS Materials Science & Engineering), U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC).


Software will be discussed on the second day of AMS, in the first session of Deployment Strategies: Programs. Materialise CEO Brigitte de Vet-Veithen will present the keynote, and then SJ Jones, Principal Manufacturing Engineer, Jones Additive Manufacturing, will moderate a panel on “Trends & Innovations in AM Software.” The panelists are Victor Gerdes, Vice President – Global Software Product Strategy, Stratasys; Duann Scott, Volunteer Advocate for 3MF Consortium and Founder of Bits to Atoms and DfAM Substack; and nTop Founder and CEO Bradley Rothenberg.

Then, Paul Gradl, Principal Engineer and Subject Matter Expert at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, will present a talk about “Space Exploration using AM.”

3D Printed Electronics

Also on the second day of AMS, before “AM in Transportation” and “Software,” the first session in Growth Strategies: Verticals is “3D Printed Electronics – Where are the Valuable Applications?” A panel on “3D Printed Electronics – Emerging Markets” will be moderated by Eric MacDonald, Murchison Chair and Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, College of Engineering, Joint Faculty Appointment, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, The University of Texas at El Paso. The panelists are Sciperio, Inc. Founder Kenneth Church; John Kawola, the CEO of Boston Micro Fabrication; and Yoav Stern, CEO and Member of the Board, Nano Dimension.
