We recently attended the 2014 Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) in Tucson, Arizona. This is a users group that started in the early 1990’s. The group initially focused on the advancement of stereolithography (SL) with the owners and operators of 3D Systems’ equipment. Today, the group educates and supports users of all Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing technologies.
There were over 600 attendees and exhibitors, which was a record showing for the event. This group ranged from graduate students to 3D printing manufacturing companies. Throughout the history of this event, camaraderie’s and relationships have formed, which have helped advance the Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing processes and applications. The atmosphere of this event is open, and encourages communication between all members for the sake of enhancing and improving the industry.
It was exciting to see designs and products that are now possible due to Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing. We look forward to next year’s conference!
