Digital Manufacturing: From Design to Production

Oct 7, 202112:00pm CDT1 hour
Digital manufacturing platforms today have a wide range of capabilities at every stage of production. Bringing a product to market used to be a slow, manual process. But in the last five years, businesses have been able to accelerate product design, prototype development, NPI process, and high-volume production using digital manufacturing platforms to gain access to thousands of electronics assembly factories, machine shops, and plastics fabrication facilities.

Join design and manufacturing experts from Altium, MacroFab, and Xometry to learn how building a digital thread from design stages to production at scale allows you to eliminate delays caused by the supply chain crisis and build products faster using cloud technologies.

What will you learn:
1. What is the current state of digital manufacturing? What kind of products can be built using these platforms, and what production scale can you reach?
2. What range of processes do these platforms enable? Can you really build fully assembled products, tested and packaged products using digital manufacturing platforms?
3. Why integration between design tools and digital manufacturing platforms enables faster product development, with significantly reduced errors and better visibility.
4. What will digital manufacturing platforms enable me to do in the future? What exactly is Industry 4.0, and does it matter?
