ICYMI 3D Printing For Lighting Professionals


If you were one of the 100+ attendees from over 15 countries to attend our 3-D Printing for Lighting Professionals webinar on September 16th, you would have learned how this new technology will revolutionize the lighting industry. This program provided a comprehensive overview of Additive Manufacturing — also known as 3D printing — followed by an in-depth panel discussion about the different processes, equipment, and materials used in the production of a three-dimensional object, with emphasis on how to produce a variety of luminaire components, as well as the latest trends. Since we couldn't travel to see the process and the manufacturers couldn't travel to us, this webinar was supported with video clips and gave a first-hand view of the 3-D printing process.

IESNYC Members can view the Webinar On Demand. Login required.
