3D Printing. Dream It. Print It.

3D printing is more than just prototyping. It offers transformative advantages at every phase of the creative process, from initial concept design to production of final products and all steps in between. From toys to confections, jewelry to furniture, auto parts to body parts, today’s 3D printing technologies have allowed an ever-growing number of creators, designers, engineers and manufacturers to unleash and multiply the benefits of in-house 3D printing across the entire creation process.

3D printing has the opportunity to change business direction and present some real hand held solutions!

See and hear how it can and will affect your creative and production environment.

Two 3D printing models, the Projet 3500 HD Max and the Projet 660, will be on hand. Unlike digital printing, 3D printed pieces can take hours to print. There will be “builds” in process so that participants can see how the print heads and builds happen in real-time.

You must RSVP to this event by February 24th to receive security clearance into the building.

Cost is $25.00 per person for GLGA member companies and $40 per person for non-member printing and finishing companies. Marketing and creative firms and agencies are invited to be our guests at a special rate of $20.00 per person. The registration fee includes lunch.
