3D printing has been a growing technology for nearly 40 years. During that time the cost of purchasing a machine has reduced dramatically, with resolution better than some expensive technologies.
With many brands of LCD printers now available, designers now have truly affordable 3D printing at their disposal, adding value and insight to their design process.
Designer Dominic Ventura will walk you through current technologies and how he uses them for proving design and product development. He will discuss brands of resin printers and demonstrate the process from file preparation through post finishing of prints.
The webinar is for designers and modelers who want to expand their design capabilities.
Dominic's digital career spans 30 years, time enough to hone his skills in 2-D and 3-D design, solid modeling, and finally surface modeling. Dominic believes using these tools made him a better designer, product engineer, and problem solver. He has created mechanisms and clasps unique in their engineering and in their applications.
Most of his career was spent in Product Development, so he understands the different disciplines necessary to create a concept and then to create a manufactured piece. Dominic taught at the Fashion Institute of Technology for 18 years, covering a variety of subjects ranging from studio/jewelry making classes to mechanical drawing.
