Distinguished INnovator Operators Award (DINO)
The DINO Award is AMUG’s most prestigious honor. It is bestowed upon those with the highest levels of additive manufacturing expertise and a willingness to share that knowledge through contributions to AMUG, its members and the industry it represents.
The additive manufacturing industry is filled with innovative, dedicated and passionate individuals that contribute to the additive manufacturing industry and to AMUG.
Each year, the DINO Selection Committee reviews submitted nominations the list of conference registrants to select no more than 10 deserving individuals. The committee considers contributions to AMUG (speaker, volunteer, etc.); contributions to the AM industry; years of hands-on work with an AM technology; willingness to share and assist; skill level; and other subjective factors.
Welcome new DINOs
The Additive Manufacturing Users Group welcomed ten new DINOs in 2020. Due to the postponement of the conference, the awards were presented virtually. The broadcast is available on demand (below).
