In my last post, I meantioned I wanted to share what our team shared with me reguading their trip to AMUG this year. This blog post will be on what Siohban Kelly, Account Manager, learned at AMUG 2017 in Chicago. See Part 1 here. There's so many great seminars and networking opportunities at AMUG, it was hard to narrow down this list! Hands-on work shop learning how to create patterns for investment and sand casting, and then actually pour and finish the metal part, was a real learning opportunity. It gave me a vivid understanding of the 3d printed application for potential customers in the Casting Industry. Hands-on work shop finishing PolyJet parts in vero clear gave me an appreciation for...
If you've been following my blog posts lately, you may recall that the 3D Printing Sales and Applications team attended AMUG this year in Chicago. I asked everyone what they learned.

My grandmother used to tell me the month of March "Comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb." I've heard these words many times over the years but it has always been my grandmothers voice in my mind. I would agree with this statement every year except this year (March 2017).

I spend a good deal of my time on sales calls (in person and on the phone) with our awesome sales team. A few appointments a week is typical for me, but looking back at my calendar, I averaged a few appointments each day for...
