Event Details

The Design Institute of Australia NSW Branch presents a discussion and interactive workshop with three leading industry practitioners who will show you how they utilise 3D printing and rapid prototyping technologies in their work and explore how they see the future of design, manufacturing and construction evolving with the rapid pace of technology.

Topics will include:

  • The use of rapid prototyping for manufacturing by incorporating new technologies with traditional craft and industrial manufacturing processes.

  • How designers, engineers and scientists are using new digital manufacturing technologies to create their works and the way in which the values and logic of the digital are imposing themselves onto the material world.

  • The significance of 3D printing in the current context, and how the role of the product designer could be impacted. What this paradigm shift means in practical terms for designers, identifying opportunities and challenges for designers across diverse disciplines, from medical to fashion.

 

In conversation with Nicholas Karlovasitis (VP DIA NSW) will be:

- Andrew Simpson | Vert Design | Principal Designer

- Jennifer Loy | Professor Product Design | UTS | School of Design

- Matthew Connell | Principal Curator | Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences

 

This event is in keeping with the DIA's commitment to promote design as a professional and a core contributor to the quality of business, society and our environment. This is an official DIA Accredited Designer™ presentation and will accrue 2 CPD points towards DIA Accedited Designer Status.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
