September 12, 2018 is the next in our series of additive manufacturing workshops Industrial applications of 3D hosted by Montreal’s AON3D. Réseau Québec-3D and Canada Makes are again partnering to showcase some of Canada’s leading experts in 3D printing. This half-day workshop will focus on industrial applications of the 3D technology- how 3D can help you gain an adavantge.
Topics will include; The Journey from Prototyping to Production, a look at how companies have successfully adapted AM since the 90’s, 3D Printing in construction, 3D scanning applications and more. The workshop’s goal is to enlighten you and stimulate thought on how 3D technology can be used in your business.
Recently, certain sectors have seen dramatic shifts in the way they operate. How fast can it happen? Take the U.S. hearing aid industry, it converted to 100% additive manufacturing in less than 500 days. According to one industry CEO, not one company that stuck to traditional manufacturing methods survived. Examples like this speak for themselves about the potential disruption 3D printing can have.
Join us and learn about the power of 3D printing and how companies have prospered through its adoption.
Real business opportunities are available to those who understand how to use this powerful new tool as part of their process. The workshop offers the chance to meet face-to-face and network with some of Canada’s leaders in additive manufacturing (AM).
We look forward to seeing you, seating is limited so sign up now as our workshops sell out fast!

About Réseau Québec-3D
The Réseau Québec-3D network is helping rally a community around additive manufacturing. Interested parties include stakeholders from aeronautics, ground transportation, and the energy industry, as well as mould manufacturers, machining companies, and people from the medical and dental sectors. University, college, and industry researchers are also taking part, along with 3D printing manufacturers and manufacturers and distributors of the raw materials used for 3D printing and metal-processing and composite material companies.
AON3D is a rapidly growing startup on a mission to put industrial 3D printing capabilities into the hands of those who need it most. Our technology has made it 10 times cheaper than before to 3D print with advanced thermoplastics, and we continue to push the boundaries on commercializing new materials for 3D printing.

For most of us, 3D printing is one of those extraordinary technologies that hits all those cliché terms like “disruptive” and “game-changing”. But if you are in manufacturing those terms are more than just buzzwords. They can be genuinely concerning rather than just interesting and cool. Disruption is threat, challenge, opportunity and future all rolled into one. It represents such a stark change that it is difficult to even decide what a first step might be.
That means any opportunity to demystify 3D printing, to break it down and show in real business terms what it means for a manufacturer and its business is like gold. How do you invest in it? Where do you invest in it? What can it do for you? How does a manufacturer make sure that the disruption of 3D printing is an opportunity they understand and not a future they hide from? Those are questions that we at the CME believe it is our responsibility to help our members answer.
That is what our next Innovation Insights event is all about. Presented by Canada Makes and hosted by Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Cimetrix Solutions and CME, this event will hold interest for anyone trying to learn what the future of 3D printing holds for them. Canada Makes, a CME initiative, is a national network of experts and institutions dedicated to the adoption of additive manufacturing and 3D technology in Canada.
Emily Carr University of Art + Design is the only post-secondary institution in BC dedicated solely to the arts, media and design. It is an ideal partnership for showing what 3D printing can mean for manufacturing here in BC.
