Atlanta, Georgia - March 06, 2008 - RAPID 2008, the premier rapid technologies and additive manufacturing event, will be held May 20-22, 2008 at the Coronado Springs Resort at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The annual conference and exposition, presented by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), will feature a myriad of speakers that offer practical information on selection and applications as well as discussions of new technology advances in the fields of rapid prototyping and 3D scanning.
One of the featured speakers will be 3DScanCo President Karol Hatzilias, who will be giving a presentation entitled "3D Scanning for Dummies". The presentation is an informative seminar regarding some common myths and misconceptions of the 3D scanning, reverse engineering and quality inspection industries. A selection of specific topics includes the incorrect assumption of automatic CAD output from scanners, the misrepresentation of 3D scanner accuracies and that 3D scanners are only for engineers.
Karol's unique background of rapid prototyping knowledge, due to his work at Georgia Tech's Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Institute, combined with his experience in the 3D scanning industry give him a unique perspective of how 3D scanning technology relates to current manufacturing and metrology practices. 3DScanCo welcomes you to attend RAPID 2008 and check out this interesting insight into the 3D scanning industry.
