AM Implement partners with both SPE and 3Dnatives to enhance the quality of additive manufacturing education.


Introducing ImplementAM: Revolutionizing Manufacturing with 3D Printing

Exciting news in the world of additive manufacturing! ImplementAM, a leading provider of educational one-day workshops on 3D printing and additive manufacturing, has recently been acquired by the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE). This acquisition is a significant step forward for SPE, who previously acquired 3Dnatives earlier this year. Together, these three businesses aim to bridge the gap between traditional manufacturing and additive manufacturing by offering innovative solutions to enhance manufacturing processes.

ImplementAM specializes in educating manufacturing professionals about the potential of 3D printing technologies, helping them revolutionize and expedite their processes using digital tools. Their approach is based on a problem-solving methodology that embraces cutting-edge technologies, presenting a range of collaborative case studies and exercises.

Patrick Farrey, CEO of SPE, is thrilled about this acquisition and the alignment of missions between ImplementAM, SPE, and 3Dnatives. He recognizes the growing importance of additive manufacturing and 3D printing in processing and production operations. ImplementAM provides essential educational opportunities to explore this industry and its impact.

The ImplementAM workshop series was created by industry veterans David Tucker and Kristin Mulherin, who met during their time at HP 3D Printing. They share a common belief that for additive manufacturing to thrive, companies must have a solid technical foundation and a profound understanding of the design and business aspects that ensure its successful integration.

Mulherin emphasizes that the integration of additive manufacturing and 3D printing does not replace traditional manufacturing but enhances it through innovation and streamlining processes. ImplementAM connects traditional manufacturers through interactive programs that foster the development of products grounded in hybrid design approaches, combining traditional manufacturing principles with digital components. Their workshops empower individuals and companies to create products that offer improved user experience, reduced waste in production, faster development cycles, and greater proximity to end-users.

Tucker explains that ImplementAM’s goal is to bring in-person workshops to the regions where people work and live. These day-long workshops, often hosted at local breweries, provide networking opportunities and a sense of fun. They include facility tours, hands-on exercises, and presentations by industry experts who share their experiences, challenges, and successes. ImplementAM strives to offer a dynamic learning experience.

In addition to their upcoming workshops in several cities across the United States, ImplementAM, with the global reach of 3Dnatives, has plans to expand its presence internationally. Workshops for European audiences are already in the works for 2024.

Alexandre Martel, Director and Founder of 3Dnatives, concludes that ImplementAM is the perfect addition to their portfolio of services for the manufacturing world. With their extended network, they are committed to empowering industry professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to unlock the full potential of 3D printing technologies.
