Executive Interviews

Executive Interviews are one-to-one conversations that 3D Printing Media Network journalists regularly have with AM industry leaders, decision makers, innovators and pioneers. You can find insights, opinions and analyses relative to the biggest challenges that the AM industry is facing, innovative technologies, new applications and much more. This is where you can learn about some of the biggest opportunities that AM presents, straight from those who are making them happen.


While reporting on everything that happens in the world of additive manufacturing, the 3dpbm and 3D Printing Media Network teams have had the privilege to speak with some of the professionals that are contributing to define the future of manufacturing.

If you are an AM industry executive, researcher, engineer or inventor and you would like to share your own views, announce new research and progresses, discuss challenges and opportunities, please contact our team anytime at info@3dpbm.com.
