Going to RAPID 2009?

If you are involved in product design, development, production tooling, and advanced manufacturing processes then we strongly recommend that you attend.

We love the RAPID show and this year it is co-located with the 3D Imaging conference. It promises to be three very informative days; filled with more than 60 technical sessions that address the diverse uses of rapid technologies, additive manufacturing and 3D imaging.

There will also be hands-on workshops, including workshops on metalcasting solutions and architectural modeling, plant tours and a show floor featuring major industry exhibitors. (Self promotion alert: we'll be at booth # 100 ).

One of the things that we are most excited about is that Michael is going to be giving a key-note address on the closing day of the conference. He'll be talking about the future of the 3D Scanning and Rapid Manufacturing industries. You'll want to make sure to hear his presentation if you get a chance. Michael has been working in this industry since 1985 and is full of insight on where it has been and where 3D technologies are going.
