Caterpillar has invested in additive manufacturing to meet the demanding challenges of the markets we serve. However, application of additive is not without its challenges, which include cost of an additive part vs. tradition manufacturing as well as validation of a part manufactured in anew method. In this presentation, we will share this journey and look at a few case studies, in both metal and non-metallic, of how we overcome the challenges and are using additive manufacturing to positively impact our business by supporting product development to
* Enable rapid exploration of new concepts and design changes without investment in expensive tooling
* Enable product development teams to get engineering data and customer feedback early in the development cycle in a manner that is cost effective
* Identify cost effective ways to support our customers and products n the field.
Learning Objectives:
Upon completion, participants will be able to 
* Better seek out and identify opportunities where additive manufacturing can be applied to the product development process and the product support process
* Understand how to apply additive manufacturing in a cost effective manner.
