SME Contracts Todd Grimm for New Book
Edgewood, Kentucky, December 15, 2002 - - Todd Grimm, founder and president of T. A. Grimm & Associates, Inc., has signed a deal with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) to write a book on rapid prototyping. Slated for an early 2004 release, the book is tentatively titled "User's Guide to Rapid Prototyping".
SME, which has two books on rapid prototyping authored by Paul Jacobs, has asked Grimm to write a manuscript that targets those that are new to the technology. According to Grimm, "I plan to write a book that is the right balance of technical information and common business practices that addresses the key questions of new users."
The demand for a book of this type should be large, if industry experts are correct in their belief that the barrier to growth in the rapid prototyping industry is a general lack of awareness and education. In each of the past four years, experts have commented in a panel discussion on the future of rapid prototyping that the #1 barrier is the lack of information available. The panel discussion is an annual event, moderated by Todd Grimm, at SME's Rapid Prototyping & Manufacturing Conference.
