      With Vince Cahill

       
    1.   3D Printing has the World’s Attention for Beauty & Function  

      ·          Distinguish Additive Manufacturing and Print Decorating

      ·          Can Produce Structures Previously Not Possible

      ·          Can Produce Limited Runs in Hours vs. Days for Traditional   Methods

       
    1.   Ink Jet Technologies  

      ·          Systems for Very Small to Very Large

      ·          With UV Cure Inks, Sizable Range of Polymers Available

      ·          Aqueous Inks in Combination with Layered Powders Produce both   Positive & Negative Structures

      ·          Much Development Underway

       
    1.   Quality Management  

      ·          Products/Parts Must Perform Comparably to Traditional Production   Methods

      ·          How can Operator Produce Quality Item on First Attempt?
