The future is here: DEVELOP3D LIVE | April 17

Written by: X3D Media | Published:

With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), VR/AR, generative design and additive manufacturing, the world of design and manufacturing is on the cusp of a breakthrough to deliver truly optimised products. See all of this and more in action at the UK’s leading product development technology conference and exhibition - DEVELOP3D LIVE - at the University of Sheffield, 17 April 2019.

The conference brings together some of the leading practitioners and technologists in the fields of additive manufacturing, visualisation and product development technology. Learn how Brompton Bicycle is revitalising a true icon of design with bleeding edge generative design and optimisation technology.

Get a glimpse into the future of product development technology with AI-driven design and engineering tools, immersive VR and AR experiences that connect design teams together and cutting-edge computational tech that helps visualise future products more quickly, more interactively and more immersively.

The Additive Manufacturing sessions will focus on the next generation of tools to ensure your organisation is equipped with the best technology and processes - including new materials, new processes, micro lattice structures, mass reduction, computational techniques for optimal design and preparing your parts for production.

The Visualisation sessions will explore the rich potential for high-end photorealistic rendering, augmented and virtual reality. Delegates will discover how to use these technologies to better understand the performance and appearance of future products, as well as guide material choices and finish to achieve the desired perceived quality.

New for 2019 are workshops to help you dive deeper into key issues surrounding product development. This includes what Brexit could mean to your existing IP, how to best protect your designs and how to best use R&D tax credits to grow through innovation.

Alongside this, we’ll have 70+ exhibitors to show off their technology solutions, services and discuss how they can help you achieve your goals in the coming year.

The event is free to all and tickets are available at
