Additive Manufacturing Users Group to select best-of-the-best in applications and finishing.
CHATSWORTH, California, February 13, 2012 – The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) today announced that it is accepting submissions for its annual Technical Competition, which recognizes innovation and excellence in additive manufacturing. Winners will be announced during the conference (April 22 – 26, 2012, Costa Mesa, Calif.) at the Award Banquet gala.
The Technical Competition has two categories: Advanced Concepts and Advanced Finishing.
The Advanced Concepts category recognizes exemplary work utilizing additive manufacturing processes. Entries in this category will "push the envelope" for a particular technology or a combination of technologies.
The Advanced Finishing category recognizes the efforts of those that are often overlooked: parts finishers, model makers, painters and others that bring a part to life.
All entries will be displayed at the conference’s Exhibitor Expo and will be judged by a panel of five "Dinosaurs," AMUG honorees that are expert users who graciously contribute to the member community.
To be eligible, a company representative must be a registered attendee for the 2012 AMUG Conference.

AMUG, formerly 3DS Users Group (3DSUG), is an organization that educates and advances the uses and applications of additive manufacturing technologies. The transition to AMUG supports the expansion of the user group to include all commercial additive manufacturing technologies for companies such as 3D Systems, EOS, Objet Geometries, Stratasys and Z Corporation. AMUG meets annually to provide a forum for technical presentation on processes and new technologies. This information addresses operation of additive manufacturing equipment and the applications that use the parts they make. Online at www.am-ug.com.
