3D Printing: From Prototype to Production

3D printing was created, and is recognized, as a prototyping technology. But it has reached a point where it's feasible to produce high quantities of production 3D printed items as an alternative to injection molding and several factors have converged to make this possible. They include Speed, Quality, and Cost. In this conversation, Gabe will discuss how Slant 3D has addressed each of these factors.

About Gabriel Bentz

During college Gabe left, for one year, to start his first company, which morphed into the product design firm Slant Concepts. He became a robotics engineer and moved his company to Boise, Idaho to focus on developing consumer robotics. In 2017, Slant Concepts realized the need and potential of commercial 3D printing. This recognition led to the creation of the spin-off Slant 3D. Gabe now spends most of his time among rows of 3D printers, growing the highest-capacity commercial 3D printing farm in the western United States.


Don’t just take our word for it

I strongly recommend Innovation Takes Root. It's a good opportunity to understand and see what happens in this area of biopolymers. It's an international event and not just on PLA. I think it's well done, well-managed, and well-organized. It was a good investment for me.

I'd definitely come back (to ITR) and recommend it. I think many different industries could learn something from a conference like this - it really is focused on the next level of sustainability.

It has been a wonderful event; very well organized. I especially appreciate the scheduling of activities, the alternation of speeches, and time to network, which has been one of the key successes from my point of view. We also felt very supported by your team; we had the feeling you believe in what Flo is doing and, for us, that's very important.
