Approved 1


Join this SME-hosted webinar with Dassault Systèmes as we share additive manufacturing insights, best practices and bold predictions, based on our real world experiences with many of the leading Aerospace & Defense companies. In this webinar, we will be exploring the Aerospace & Defense additive manufacturing journey, starting with design and ideation through to production.

Key areas we will be exploring are:

  • Design for additive manufacturing
  • Common additive manufacturing production scenarios for today in Aerospace & Defense
  • Production feasibility and approaches
  • The leap to mass production – key standards and requirements
  • Parts Certification
  • Additive Manufacturing on the bottom line – dollars and ‘sense’
