Design and Manufacturing, Art and Engineering. 3D Printing Seminars / Demos
Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) for direct manufacture is the process where additive or successive processes build complex, finished products, not possible using conventional manufacturing methods. It is changing the game for the Creative Industries, providing new directions for designers and artists and new business models for manufacturers and entrepreneurs. Meet international, national and local experts who will share their understanding in a series of informative seminars, technical demonstrations and hands-on activities. See 3D Printing in action, advanced software to manipulate data for 3D CAD modelling and optimise designs for 3D Printing, and the latest in scanning technology.
“When considering the use of additive manufacturing (AM) for production quantities, design is arguably more important than anything else. If it is ignored, you may find it very difficult to build a business case around the use of AM. That’s how vital it is.” Terry Wohlers, Wohlers Associates The seminars will update you on what is happening in 3D Printing around the world, explain designing for 3D Printing and illustrate the opportunities for innovation in the creative industries, from commercial design for manufacturing in metals, polymers and new innovative materials, through to challenging performance art 3D Printing applications with biomaterials.
Designing with 3D Printing: • Hear from world leading experts in 3D Printing on real world examples of innovation. • See 3D Printers and digital fabrication technologies in action. • Get an expert technical overview of the software. • See examples of 3D Printing demonstrating design opportunities. • Hear the potential of 3D Printing for performance art and the range of creative industries, from architecture to fashion. • Experience 3D laser scanning from facial scanners and desktop digitizers to large scale topographical scanners. • Find out how data is imported for reverse engineering and point cloud data for 3D Printing.
What are the Advantages of 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing? • Geometric complexity • Internal geometry
There will be hands-on demonstrations of 3D Printers, digital scanners and 3D CAD parametric modellers. Your questions will be answered by experts ready to advise you.
• Customised outcomes
If you want to find out how 3D Printing is relevant for you as a designer, manufacturer, artist or creative entrepreneur and want to know how to take 3D Printing in your business your 3D Printing to the next level, this day is for you.
• Evolution of design
• Translation of scan point cloud data into real objects
