The second stop on our trip around the Southwest for Stratasys’ new J750 Full Color 3D Printer was in fantastic downtown Salt Lake City. This device is reinventing 3D printing, and we are showing it off in person so people can see it up close along with holding incredible parts it makes in their hands.
The 3D Printing community in Utah is very mature and the attendees were mostly very experienced users of many different additive manufacturing technologies. So we focused on real world applications for the J750 as well as other Stratasys systems.
We were fortunate enought to have a customer, Ultradent, present the fantastic ways that they use their FDM and Polyjet printers to make prototypes, tooling, and production parts.
As is usual in this type of an event, the discussion between and after presentations are the best part. People from Aerospace, sporting goods, medical devices, and consumer products swapped stories, suggestions, and tips.
It was also a family affair. with Jame Barker’s latest family addition was in attendence to help spread the word on the value of 3D Printing with Stratasys solutions:Beyond the little guy, the other hit of the afternoon was the J750. As seasoned additive manufacturing profesionals they see the incredible leap forward this machine represents – truly reinventing 3D Printing and opening up a huge range of oportunities.
Denver was the first stop on a trip around the Southwest for Stratasys’ new J750 Full Color 3D Printer. We are showing this machine that is reinventing 3D printing off in person so people can see the device up close and hold the incredible parts it makes in their hands.
The Denver event was hosted by St. Patrick’s Brewery in Littleton, right down the street from PADT’s Colorado Office. Several customers and PADT employees gave talks on how to better use 3D Printing, including a presentation from Mario Vargas on the new Stratasys J750.
On top of all of that, local radio station KDMT, Denver’s Money Talk 1690, did a live broadcast from the event. Radio Waves have huge collection of radio stations. You can listen in here. Again, PADT employees and customers talked about 3D Printing as well as the new Stratasys J750.
We also made the local paper, check that out here.
KJZZ’s Mark Brodie interviewed PADT’s Eric Miller as a follow on to the blog post Eric did on the AZ BioTech industry. He asked great questions on where the industry is and what we should be doing next.
With the increase of interest in 3D Printing from the general public, PADT has been asked to speak about the technology over several different forms of media. The local Phoenix TV stations were kind enough to come in and learn about the technology, including a great interview on the local PBS station. We have been asked to give presentations to schools, inventor groups, and even a conference on traditional digital printing. Last week we crossed over into a new area for us, talk radio.
Don’t worry, this was not political talk radio… we are still waiting for Rush Limbaugh’s call. A local financial station, Money Radio, wanted to talk about 3D Printing. Renee Palacios and your truly were interviewed by John Barnabas, host for “Happiness, Opportunity and Technology.”
If you need someone to talk about 3D Printing to your organization or if you are in the media and need recognized experts who can explain the technology, contact us and we would be happy to work with you.
Local station Money Radio – 1510AM 99.3FM – is broadcasting a show on 3D Printing from PADT. Technology, Opportunity and Happiness, hosted by John Barnabas, will be broadcasting live from PADT on July 29th from 12 noon till 1:00 pm. The show includes a studio audience and will focus on how 3D printing is impacting business and the markets.
There is room in the audience for about 30 people, so register now to reserve your seat. We will cover the basics of the technology, but the real discussion will be about how this technology has and is transforming the way people innovate, and the way companies manufacture products. Lunch will be served and we will keep the discussion going and giving tours after the broadcast for anyone that wants to learn more.
If you can’t attend, you can listen live in Arizona on 1510 AM or 99.3 FM. And you can always listen from anywhere over the web here.
