Developers face rising pressure to bring novel, high performance materials to market faster and cheaper. Yet, most materials fail to meet commercial expectations, and lengthy timelines limit attractiveness to investors. On average, materials R&D takes as long today as it did decades ago. Now, emerging design and manufacturing tools such as 3D printing, 3D scanning, material informatics software, and modeling and simulation software are beginning to accelerate materials and part design times.
This webinar will:
• Outline the state of, and trends in, materials design and manufacturing
• Explore how these shifts will impact both material developers and part manufacturers
• Analyze key near-term and long-term opportunities and challenges
