    Direct Digital Manufacturing

    So I'm going to this workshop...

    Direct Digital Manufacturing

    A blurb:

    The RMU-CARES Direct Digital Manufacturing Technology
    Transfer Center is offering this hands-on training workshop
    to current and prospective rapid prototyping (RP) and rapid
    manufacturing (RM) users. The workshop will allow users to
    compare and practice various technologies. Participants will gain
    extensive knowledge regarding commercially available DDM
    systems, including their advantages and limitations, as well as
    the ability to select technology and matching material consistent
    with their needs.

    Participants will be able to build their own designs using several
    different technologies, materials and machines. Prior to the
    workshop, participants are invited to submit solid model files
    for consideration for production by rapid prototyping or rapid
    manufacturing methods.
    So, I don't have Solidworks, but would be willing to take a file or two in for them to consider. I'm not looking for anything proprietary, anything benign but cool would work.

    Anyone have a file they'd like to see come to life?

    I get all kinds of emails for 3D printing and solid works at work. I'd LOVE to have that capability! I've seen that you can actually "print" prototype molds for casting!!!! I've called around for more info and as expected the 3D printers are crazy expensive, but there is a place in Portland, Oregon that will do them.

    Sounds like a very interesting opportunity.
