Why does 3D printing matter to Shell? – Presented by Patrick de Winter, Royal Dutch Shell plc, at the 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands.
What is the value of 3D printing to a company like Shell, what challenges do we see and how do we overcome these? Shell started with 3DP printing in 2011 and since then expanded the capability. In this presentation you will learn where we see value for this technology and how we overcome the challenges.
