Rapid Customization: Product Design Through Digital Sculpture and 3D Printing
With the convergence of Rapid technologies, product customization is more and more available without the high price of custom.  

From medical devices fitting patients perfectly to housewares customers choosing custom textures for a product to customized toys, manufacturers are able to offer their customers custom options utilizing an on-demand manufacturing model, compressing time to develop and in turn democratizing manufacturing.

Interactive Projection Mapping: A Visual Instrument
Projection mapping is a technology that up until recently has been reserved for professional visual and animation studios. Erick Calderon is developing systems that put projection mapping technology into the hands of a broader audience. Join us for a crash course on projection mapping as well as a live demonstration of innovative techniques that allow us to bring the technology home.

3D Imaging Technology as it Applies to Historical Documentation, Preservation and Education
In the winter of 2012, the Tall Ship ELISSA was put into dry dock in Texas City to makes repairs to her hull that were sustained in Hurricane Ike. Being in dry dock afforded the perfect opportunity for SmartGeoMetrics to conduct a 3D historical documentation of the as-is conditions of the hull while at the same time working with the Galveston Historical Foundation to explore ways to use this data in the creation of educational resources. Plans are now in place to document all spaces in the ship to allow for virtual access via on-shore kiosks as well as through the Internet.

Gamification - For Marketing, Training and Education

epic software group, inc. is a 23 year old multimedia development company located in The Woodlands, Texas (www.epicsoftware.com). The company's work includes 3D Animation, Video Production, and Panoramic photography for Commercial/Industrial applications. Their clients are generally from the energy industry and include many service and manufacturing companies in and around the Houston area. 

Last year epic developed a 3D "walk through" using the Unity 3D game engine. This online application allows a viewer to explore a drilling rig just as you would in a 3D game environment. This application was developed through HARC (Houston Advanced Research Council) from a grant by the General Land Office of Texas. epic is now developing applications for training, safety simulations, and marketing purposes.  The use of powerful game engines for interactive 3D environments is poised to take off over the next couple of years. epic software group will provide 3DCamp attendees with a sneak peek into the future.

Copyrights, Ethics and Responsibilities of 3D
Copyrights are important to all artists. Creating artwork is how artists make their living. When copyrights are infringed upon, the livelihood of the artist is at stake. Working with 3D art artists enter a digital world where their work can be copied and sent around the world with a push of a button. There are advantages to this digital process, but there are liabilities.

With the ability to use the digital images of others, 3D scanning real objects and 3D printing or CNC milling to reproduce images, how can an artist be sure that they are not infringing on another person’s copyrights and how can they protect their own artwork?

Along with the Intellectual property discussion of Copyrights Bridgette will begin a dialogue about the responsibilities and ethics of 3D technology as it relates to such things as Bio printing and regenerative medicine, the 3D printing of guns and the changes in the digital world we live in.
