About this event

How 3D scanning and printing improve time to market

From the early prehistoric discovery of how to control fire to the printing press, from the telephone to the Internet, it is our ability to think and innovate that drove us to where we are today. Innovation is key for businesses but, with the fierce global competition, time to market is critical when working on product development. Engineers and designers are faced with an immense pressure to come up with new products and innovate—faster! How can they deal with these mounting daily challenges? This presentation will demonstrate how 3D printing, along with 3D scanning, is used by professionals on a daily basis and how these new tools completely revolutionized the way they work.
