Cimatron Limited, a CAD/CAM software company with over 40,000 installations worldwide, recently announced that it is establishing a 3D Printing Advisory board, naming the 3D printing expert Terry Wohlers as the first board member.
Terry Wohlers, with more than 20 years of experience within the 3D printing industry, has provided technical and strategic consulting within 3D printing through his Colorado-based company, Wohlers Associates, Inc., and is focusing on the new developments and trends. Wohlers has consulted for over 200 organisations in over 20 countries. Mr. Wohlers is not a new face at conferences either; he has delivered presentations, many of them keynotes, in close to 100 3D printing conferences. He is also stepping up to give a keynote at the inaugural Inside 3D Printing conference taking place in New York April this year.
Mr. Danny Haran, Cimatron’s President and CEO was excited to have Mr. Wohlers on board: “The creation of a 3D printing advisory board, and Mr. Wohlers’ appointment to it, is aimed at accelerating Cimatron’s efforts in entering the additive and hybrid manufacturing field. We are pleased and honored to have Mr. Wohlers on board, and believe that his wide experience and knowledge of this fast emerging industry will assist us in identifying ways in which we can further our efforts to serve the global manufacturing market as effectively and innovatively as possible.”
Mr Wohlers acknowledged his honor at the nomination and is positive about future prospects: “Cimatron has long been a strong player in the CAD/CAM software market, and it is only natural for the company to leverage its knowledge of manufacturing software solutions by exploring opportunities in 3D printing. By 2015, we believe the 3D printing industry will be worth $3.7 billion, and a successful deployment by Cimatron in this market will provide it strong potential for growth. I am honored to have been selected as part of Cimatron’s pioneering efforts in this regard and I look forward to working closely with Cimatron’s management team and Board of Directors.”
