2024 SME Additive Manufacturing Community Awards

Each year, SME awards the top additive manufacturing minds for achievements in the industry. This year, we acknowledge four awards at RAPID + TCT for achievements that have been implemented or deployed in a commercial/industrial environment, outstanding use cases of AM adoption and implementation, and a technology and an application that solves an existing problem or unique approach. To round out the awards, on Thursday, the AM Pitchfest winner will be announced!
