Industry Day (June 25th 2013)
Focusing on industrial cases, machinery and applications.
In several phases of a design process, prototypes give information about functionality, shape, tactility, assembly, etc.
They visualize concepts and speed up decision making.
Choosing between traditional, additive or virtual techniques and estimating time and budget, are important aspects in a strategic point of view of every company involved in product development, architecture, entertainment etc.
Public Day (June 26th 2013)
