Longtime Stratasys partner Neri Oxman will be featured as a keynote presenter on Monday, February 5. Just this past December, in collaboration with Stratasys, Neri and her team unveiled “Vespers” at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. These breakthrough 3D printed death masks were created in large part leveraging Stratasys’ full-color multi-material technology. If you are unable to attend the keynote in person you can watch the live webcast here.
Later on Monday, Stratasys customer VER will be on-hand to explore 3D printing and rapid prototyping to power fast-paced broadcast television coverage of professional sports and entertainment. Teaming with Stratasys, VER developed the popular “Front Row Cam” in conjunction with ESPN. The camera leverages a production-grade thermoplastic enclosure to facilitate hard-to-achieve camera angles during the broadcasts of both Major League baseball and the US Open.
