Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) Training

At Ascent Fabrication, we believe that additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, has a big role to play in offering more efficient workflows for several industries. We are very active in the Prosthetics and Orthotics industry as our founder is an ABC Certified Prosthetist, having built the digital workflow and 3D printing side of more than 15 businesses over the last three years. Joe has also been a consultant for several clinical modification software companies, implementing our workflows within their software, and has worked with a few 3D printer manufacturers to set up their machines for successful and efficient 3D printing best practices. 

If you are ready to implement, or build upon your 3D printing and digital workflow within your business, reach out to Joe today to schedule a consultation for an in-house training!
