Inition, a pioneering creative 3D technology and production company, are opening the doors to their Shoreditch Demo Studio to provide a workshop on 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies. This is a unique opportunity during the festival to gain hands-on experience with some of the latest 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies and learn from some of Inition’s experts who have been working with these technologies since 2006. Inition’s 3D scan and print team work with a wide-range of clients in architectural model making, product design, engineering and cultural heritage and are increasingly working with the film & TV industry. Creative agencies are also waking up to the huge potential of 3D printing for mass-customisation and crowd-sourced generative 3D printing projects. As 3D printing is becoming more widely-used, 3D scanning becomes ever more important as an acquisition tool. Inition’s workshop will follow-through an object from scan to print, revealing some of the techniques and challenges faced. Attendees will have the opportunity to get a body part (!) scanned and one person will be chosen to receive a finished 3D print! All attendees will be able to take away their raw scan data to use in their own 3D projects - just bring a USB key along. Limited to 30 places so please book early.<br><br> Questions answered : <br>How has 3D printing developed traditional craftsmanship methods?
