Detroit Manufacturing Conference to Feature 3-D Printed Slot Car Race and Other 3D Printing Exhibitors

Rapid 2014 (which has already confirmed about 100 exhibitors) is a great representation of the industry’s growth,” says Debbie Holton, director of events and industry strategy at SME in Dearborn (formerly Society of Manufacturing Engineers). “For an organization like SME, which has been the additive manufacturing industry leader and authority figure for nearly 25 years, it’s an exciting time to see decades of the industry’s research and hard work receive global recognition from entrepreneurs, consumers, and media alike.”

New features to the conference, to be held June 9-12, include a concept called 3-D Playground, where visitors using a 3-D printing machine can scan a design or photograph of an actual object. SME is also teaming with Materialise, a Belgian-based 3-D printing company that has its North American headquarters in Plymouth Township, to offer a slot car race. Exhibitors and attendees are being challenged to not only create, but also to race their own 3-D-printed slot cars, Holton says.

WD will be on the conference floor, representing the Association of 3D Printing. Keep tuned to the 3D Printing Podcast for up to date news on the show.
