Conference Abstract: In this presentation, AMGTA Executive Director Sherri Monroe will discuss the inherent sustainability potential of additive design and manufacturing using recent business case studies. From the head-down part-to-part comparisons to understanding the big picture of what AM can enable for end-users in achieving their strategic business objectives, framing sustainability appropriately is critical and can lead to increased adoption without the over-promising pitfalls of the past.

The environmental benefits of additive design and manufacture are real but must be understood in a holistic way. Framing the question, answers, and overall understanding for AM users is key to unlocking this valuable leverage point.
