What I learned at AMUG 2017 Part 4

This is a continuation of the “What I learned at AMUG 2017 series”  This post is from Evette Brodnik, Account Manager, from our Cleveland, Ohio Office. See here for part 1, part 2, and part 3.

Some take aways:

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Let’s not forget- “if your microwave is broke you can always heat your ham sandwich in the Fortus 450 or Uprint!”  JUST KIDDING!
