3D PDF Consortium Announces Its First Academia Member Category Partner

Beaverton, Oregon,  September 22, 2016 -- 3D PDF Consortium is pleased to announce its first Academia Member Category partner.

Purdue University is the first university to take advantage of the new Academia member category. The team initiating the drive for consortium membership is headed up by Nathan W. Hartman, Ed.D., the Professor and Associate Head of Computer Graphics Technology at Purdue. The mission of the undergraduate program in Computer Graphics Technology is to prepare graduates for leadership positions in computer graphics professions and to advance the knowledge in the application and teaching of computer graphics through applied research, publishing, presentations, and teaching. This is a great fit for Purdue University and the 3D PDF Consortium.

"We joined 3DPDF consortium to interact with those companies and industry sectors leveraging PDF technology throughout the product and process life cycle. The contacts and knowledge gained will influence our curriculum at Purdue," said Professor Nathan W. Hartman, Ed.D.,Professor and Associate Head, Computer Graphics Technology at Purdue Polytechnic Institute.

Professor Hartman went on to say, "We hope to contribute knowledge of industry practices, high-TRL research, and a student pipeline interested in PLM, digital manufacturing, and product data standards."

3D PDF Consortium Executive Director Jerry McFeeters said of their new Academia Member Category:"Together 3D PDF Consortium and Purdue University will advance the quality of technical graduates entering the workforce by adding an academic perspective to our industry's discussion. Purdue University has the opportunity to shape the future conversations and direction of our community."
 
The 3D PDF Consortium is community of organizations representing a broad cross-section of industry and institutions. We have both small and large end user companies, software developers and systems integrators as members of the consortium. Our member companies are passionately dedicated to 3D ubiquity and working together to make that happen.
