At this unique show floor feature, event attendees view poster displays of projects or research in the areas of 3D printing, additive manufacturing, and 3D imaging. Gain additional information of interest including a glimpse into future additive manufacturing research, developments and applications.

RAPID + TCT Posters will be displayed in the exhibits area and will be open to all event attendees. Posters will be on display Wednesday, May 10 from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm and a special Interactive Poster Session will be held between the hours of 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm. During this interactive time, poster presenters will be available at their respected posters to interact with guests, answer questions and discuss the technology/features of their display.

Please note that photographing posters without the permission of the presenters is prohibited.
