Five individuals were recognized at the recent  Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference with Distinguished INnovator Operator (DINO) Awards in recognition of tenure in the additive manufacturing industry, years of service, contributions to the industry, and active support of AMUG and its conference.

Each year, the DINO Selection Committee reviews submitted nominations and 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.

The 2024 DINOs — Jamie Cone, Steve Grundahl, Thomas Murphy, Vadim Pikhovich, and Bob Renella — were presented with the award on the main stage of the 2024 AMUG Conference.

The new DINOs’ efforts have played varied roles in making the AMUG Conference a positive experience for those seeking insights, information, and connections. Over many years, they have supported AMUG by being team members on the AMUG Board and AMUG committees and by supporting the AMUG Conference program.

Over its long history, AMUG has awarded DINOs to only 191 individuals. Although there are many deserving of recognition as a DINO, AMUG limits this prestigious award to no more than ten individuals each year.
