On-Demand Webinar: Approaching Additive Manufacturing Design with Professor Tim Simpson

Special guest Tim Simpson, Director of Penn State University's Graduate Program for Additive Manufacturing & Design, discusses how to approach additive manufacturing through purpose-built design.

By Serena Ngoh · June 04, 2020

In this on-demand webinar, special guest Tim Simpson, Director of Penn State University's Graduate Program for Additive Manufacturing & Design, discusses how to approach additive manufacturing through purpose-built design. Together with Xometry’s Director of Application Engineering, Greg Paulsen, Professor Simpson tackles design scenarios in a conversational panel discussion. He shows designers and engineers what additive manufacturing can (and can’t!) do, and how to move from restrictive replications of traditionally manufactured designs to those that enable the design freedoms afforded by additive manufacturing.
