SME Offers Rapid Prototyping Workshop
Edgewood, Ky., February 24 -- T. A. Grimm & Associates, Inc., a rapid prototyping consulting company, announced that its president, Todd Grimm, will conduct introductory workshops on rapid prototyping. The half-day program, organized and sponsored by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), is scheduled in six cities across the United States. Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of the technology that enables them to evaluate the advantages of rapid prototyping and determine if it is suited for their applications and needs.
The workshop offers a comprehensive review of benefits, limitations, operations, applications, evaluations and implementations. Attendees will also see rapid prototyping equipment in operation and hear case studies that highlight the potential advantages of the technology. Based on Todd Grimm's new book, Userís Guide to Rapid Prototyping, the workshop delivers insight and information required for an evaluation of rapid prototyping based on business and technical criteria.
"While there is tremendous awareness of rapid prototyping, I have found that there is a need for factual, pragmatic and realistic information on the technology and what it can do. I am pleased that SME is offering this workshop to fill the information gap for students, designers, engineers and managers," stated Grimm.
The first workshop will be in Orlando, Florida on March 5, 2004. Throughout March and April, the workshop will travel to Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, and Los Angeles.
Information on the workshop, a listing of dates and locations, and registration forms are available at www.tagrimm.com/1stlook/ and www.sme.org/firstlook/. The price is $25.00 for members of SME and $50.00 for non-members. Advanced registration is suggested.
