The webinar concludes with a live Q&A with Paul Heiden, Ultimaker's Senior VP of Product Management. Throughout the entire event, viewers could ask questions via a chat function, receive useful assets and links, and vote in polls.

  • What questions Ultimaker Application Engineers ask when helping OEM customers find new 3D printing opportunities 

  • The digital technology that is enabling a new category of 3D printed tools 

  • The surprising – and helpful – way that 3D printing relates to baking a cake

Paul Heiden, Ultimaker's SVP of Product Management, conducted a live Q&A

If you put a 3D printer next to a line where you need a part, you can imagine that it’s a lot faster than ordering it from elsewhere.

In the live Q&A, you'll learn about topics such as:

  • The "digital factory"

  • Cloud functionality

  • Repair and maintenance
