TORONTO — As 3D printing continues to gain swift momentum – growing by leaps and bounds in manufacturing, aviation and medical industries in particular – Canada’s additive manufacturing/3D printing tradeshow and conference is returning to Toronto.

SME will bring RAPID Canada’s Conference back to Toronto’s International Centre in September as part of the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) 2015.

First introduced in 2014, the RAPID conference and exhibition is a forum for the exchange of information related to the latest developments in additive manufacturing, 3D printing and 3D scanning.
