Event details

The Enabling Innovation Team are pleased to invite you to this fully funded taster event, which is open to SMEs and sole traders based in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) area.

The Design Innovation Hub at Nottingham Trent University is offering an introduction to emerging and disruptive technologies, which includes 3D modelling, 3D scanning, 3D printing, augmented and virtual realities.

This taster event is designed to introduce these design technologies. Delegates will learn about their potential and limitations within typical SME budget capabilities, and discuss how they might be used to develop innovative processes in design and product development. This will allow you to learn the basics in a number of areas, including:

  • 3D CAD software to understand the potential for building your own 3D models
  • 3D scanning and image capture as an alternative means to generate 3D CAD models
  • 3D printing and the 3D model preparation software that supports it
  • augmented reality, and how this emerging technology might be incorporated into your design process and overall business practice.

Complimentary refreshments and nibbles will be provided.

This event is part of a series of events including;

Introduction to 3D Modelling – Tuesday 25 October 2016
Introduction to 3D Scanning - Tuesday 29 November 2016
Introduction to 3D Printing - Tuesday 20 December 2016

Enabling Innovation is a three-year collaboration between Nottingham Trent University, The University of Nottingham and the University of Derby to support SMEs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to innovate. It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
