Add Value with 3D Printing

Whether you are an investor, entrepreneur or hobbyist, this 3D printing event will provide you with the knowledge of 3D printing and its evolution. Learn how 3D printing could be used in your world. Some questions that will be addressed during the event:

  1. What is 3D printing?
  2. 3D Printing technologies and history.
  3. 3D printing applications.
  4. What can you make with a 3D printer?
  5. How much does a 3D printer cost?
  6. What are the materials used to print 3D objects?
  7. What modeling software is suitable for a beginner in 3D design?
  8. Where can I get 3D models and 3D printing services?

We exist in a world where "need it now" collides with "fit for me," generating a new expectation for how we create, construct, and consume.  Traditional approaches for enriching our lives, improving our workplaces, and healing our bodies need to be modernized.  Advanced in science and technology have revealed the possibility of customized and personalized approaches, but traditional tools and systems restrict our widespread potential to turn ideas into action.

3D Printing can add value and help you get there faster, better, and cheaper.  It has applications and benefits at all stages of product development, in every industry that creates actual objects such as automotive, aerospace, medical, industrial products, appliances, toys, packaging, education, jewelry, art, and consumer products.

Please join Barbara Miller Webb with D3 Technologies, as she discusses how 3D technology can be used in each step of product development and manufacturing processes.
