What is 3D Printing? Why is it such a hot product? Why has 3D Printing been on the lips of technologists for years and now it’s on the lips of the general consume? Why is 3D Technology, or additive manufacturing, poised for explosive growth and why is it so important to BDPA?
By ‘printing’ and shaping materials such as paper layer upon layer in various geometries, we can now create three-dimensional physical objects at a fraction of the unit cost. This advance in technology has opened the door for numerous applications that are revolutionizing businesses across all industries. Everyday people are also joining in on the fun and coming up with ever more creative uses for 3D printing.
Our guest speaker for this month is Jeff Smith, co-founder of high quality 3D printing technology company, Fabricon3D, located in Cincinnati. He is very enthusiastic about technology and how it can be leveraged in a business setting to get the job done faster and better. Jeff is an entrepreneur who has run a successful executive search practice (Smith, Fischer & Associates) since 1998.
BDPA is pleased that Jeff will share his expertise and wisdom with BDPA members. Anyone, regardless of race or color, is welcome to attend!
