RAPID prototyping, CONFERENCES & conventions, 3-D printers, and ROBOTICS conferences
The article offers information on the Invention Convention workshop for high school students of Victoria, will be held as part of the 2015 Invention Convention from 22-24 September, 2015 in Bendigo, Victoria which will features the prototype unique solutions with 3-D printers and robotics.
Tom Mueller, co-owner of Express Pattern Inc. in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, outlined advances in rapid prototyping materials on March 22, 2004 at the Charlotte, North Carolina conference of the Structural Plastics Division of the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. Mueller bought one of the first stereolithography machines in the late 1980s at Baxter Healthcare Corp., where he was manager of computer-aided engineering. Mueller said, product designers first have to determine how close they need to come for properties such as stiffness, flexural modulus, impact and coefficient of thermal expansion, then select the proper rapid prototyping material.
The article offers information on the seminar organized by the Royal College of Art and Materials and Design Exchange regarding rapid prototyping. It mentions that The Product Works, one of five consultancies was asked to create a single-part product to show the advantages of rapid prototyping.
