Atlanta, GA, July 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The technology available for prototyping has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few years and has become much more accessible to startup entrepreneurs. Slingshot recently participated in a RAPID Prototyping event where guests were taken to a few local Atlanta facilities to learn about the lay of the 3D printing and prototyping landscape. The event was highly anticipated and covered on the Forbes.com website in an engaging article which discusses additive manufacturing.
Slingshot utilizes leading technologies as part of an efficient innovation process. Slingshot has been a pioneer in 3D technologies, and has been involved in developing 3D imaging technologies for NASA and Lockheed Martin. For the past 11 years, Slingshot has worked with startups and corporations alike to innovate, design, engineer, prototype, and manufacture new products in a cost effective manner. The SPDG portion of the event focused on educating participants in the areas of Innovation, New Technologies and Processes, Manufacturing Solutions, and 3D Technologies.
“New technologies have greatly expanded the opportunities for efficient and effective innovation. But, the full promise of these technologies can only be realized through their combination with a strong innovation process, which involves design thinking, efficient decision making, and a cross-discipline effort to achieve the innovator’s business goals,” said Noah McNeely, CEO and one of the original founders of Slingshot, after the event. Slingshot looks forward to participating in future events and continuing to share our experience to educate the product development community.
