Some take aways:
- The hands on classes were a great opportunity. I enjoyed the Sand casting/Investment casting class and having the opportunity to touch, feel and pour molten tin into the mold and release. Sometimes that’s all it takes to have a clearer understanding of what you are trying to convey. I enjoyed Siobhan filming me as well!
- Meeting the Stratasys people face to face was a pleasure. A few I have relied on for help when Jeremy, our own Application Engineer, was out; it was nice to thank them in person and chat about up and coming advancements at Stratasys. I received a couple more connections in different departments if need them.
- It was amazing to see ALL the different technologies out there! I was blown away at some of the parts I saw; it was nice to be able to ask questions (you know I like that!) and find out what it took to achieve the parts with their technology.
- I enjoyed the Stratasys hands on class with Jigs and Fixtures and being able to watch Jeremy insert magnets, remove break away support etc. I had hands on with creating a license plate holder and using a ‘jig’ to place and glue the letters where they needed to go.
- I’m very proud to be there representing 3DVision Technologies and Stratasys. I heard a lot of positive feedback on the machines and technology and learned some tips to keep in mind when discussing certain machines with future customers.
- Let’s not forget- “if your microwave is broke you can always heat your ham sandwich in the Fortus 450 or Uprint!” JUST KIDDING!
