3D Printing & Future Technologies Shaping Design

A discussion and interactive workshop with three leading industry practitioners who will show you how they utilise 3D printing and rapid prototyping technologies in their work and explore how they see the future of design, manufacturing and construction evolving with the rapid pace of technology.

Topics will include:

  • The use of rapid prototyping for hybrid manufacturing by incorporating new technologies with traditional craft and industrial manufacturing processes.
  • How larger rapid prototyping machines in combination with carbon fibre wrapping will change the way designers and architects design, produce and use functional, full scale parts.
  • How the rapid changes of the technologies are developing into new equipment and what this will mean for designers, manufacturers and consumers.


Andrew Simpson
