Imagine a world where new products can be designed as shapes on a computer and easily turned into objects using 3-D printers. You can “print” or make a dozen, see if there is a market for them and “print” 50 more with minor modifications using feedback from early users---all while reducing costs and waste. That technology is here and gaining ground quickly This session will examine the latest in scanning tools, related equipment (purchase and rented), CAD/CAM software (including inexpensive free tools) and additive manufacturing/rapid prototyping machines. The future is here. Don’t miss this intriguing discussion.Click here to enroll as an SEI eLearner to access this seminar, plus other great educational content.
