This May, one of the longest-running 3D tech exhibitions, RAPID, will be marking its 25th anniversary. Hitting a new U.S. city every year, RAPID effectively demonstrates a growing interest in 3D scanning and printing across the nation – the 2014 Detroit show posted an impressive 51% increase in the exhibitor count, promising to set a new record this year.
Want to know what’s next in the 3D world? Come to Long Beach, CA, where an array of leading developers and manufacturers will be sharing their vision of the future of the industry. Artec and our partners from Rapid Scan 3D will be presenting our new 3D scanning solutions along with the bestselling Eva and Spider handheld scanners. Eva and Spider have been put to use in a wide variety of industries, from prosthetics to CGI, because they’re fast, precise and require no targets to render the object’s geometry correctly.
The show will see the U.S. premiere of Space Spider, a handheld 3D scanner that incorporates the best features of Artec Spider, whilst boasting an improved accuracy system and a ten times faster warm-up period for achieving maximum precision. Space Spider was designed to work in space – hence the name. Down here, on Earth, it’ll come in handy where accuracy matters most, for instance, in prototyping, reverse engineering, quality control and the space industry of course.
The RAPID expo will be complemented by a series of workshops and discussion sessions, focusing on additive manufacturing applications, new materials, standards and quality assurance. RAPID is your event to explore the unlimited possibilities of how 3D technology can advance your business.
Where: Stand 654, Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, CA
