The recent IN(3D)USTRY event in Barcelona brought together industry users, manufacturers and service providers to discuss 3D printing’s role in building more efficient, value-added manufacturing processes. Speaking on behalf of Stratasys, I described the different ways 3D printing is being implemented to improve production and help businesses gain a competitive advantage. And I gave examples of the growing importance of 3D printing in Industry 4.0 as it continues to become more integrated in conventional manufacturing processes – transforming how we design, manufacture and work in the 21st century.

One of the main points I emphasized at the end of the keynote is the role of 3D printing is motivating students to get into STEM education. This is critical in building our next generation workforce that is prepared to enjoy and optimize the benefits of 3D printing for Industry 4.0. Research shows that enabling students to actually touch and experience technology dramatically improves their ability to remember technological concepts, as 3D printing makes STEM education much more impactful and attractive.
