The Rapid Prototyping Association and The Plastics Molders &
Manufacturers Association of SME announce the first of its kind event,
1-2, 1998 at the Somerset Inn in Troy, MI.
Register Now for the two day multi-speaker event that will provide an
overview of reverse engineering with specific information for deciding
which technology fits your application.
* If you have an old product and no CAD exists and you need to make
design changes, or you just need a new die, you need to learn what
reverse engineering options fit your application.
* If you want to really check out your competition find out how other
companies are using scanning to create FEA models of competitive parts.
* If you are a rapid prototyper learn how rapid tooling can be done from
reverse extraction and how fast your development cycle really can be !
During these two days, presentations will take you through the steps:
You will hear case studies from many different manufacturing areas,
presentations on all types of scanning, and discussions about which
applications fit which technologies.

We are pleased to offer multi-speaker presentations from the following:
Jim Rollins, Scientific Measurement Systems
Steve Gaspardo, Gaspardo and Associates
Todd Grimm, Accelerated Technologies Inc.
Bill Bellows, Woodward Govenor
Tadd Fox Imageware
Jim Williams, Paramount
