(PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Kashmir Robotics, Autodesk Fusion 360 and Solid Concepts have teamed up to present a free 2-part webinar which will explore how 3D Printing has been implemented into the execution of UAV production, and what that means for future UAVs.
On February 6th and 20th at 1:30PM EST, join Autodesk Fusion and Solid Concepts for an in-depth discussion on:
- Additive manufacturing and 3D Printing
- The resources available to participants in the UAV challenge (and how to receive those resources)
- The historical uses of 3D Printing in drone technology, from conceptual and functional design
- Workflows and best practices to prepare 3D models for fabrication
- 3D Printing materials and their strengths and weaknesses
While focused on instructing and challenging the Wildlife Conservation Challenge’s 100+ teams, the webinar is an excellent resource for anyone in the engineering, design or production industry with regards to aerospace, UAVs and how additive manufacturing has been integrated into countless aerospace programs.
