3D PRINTING FOR THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES 2014
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. 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. 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.
