3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress

October 3 & 4, 2017  ::  Golden, Colorado

3D CIC


3D CIC 2017 Theme:
UNITE: Engineering & Shop Floor Collaboration


3D CIC focuses on CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. More than ever before, information needs to be digital and fully associated as Model-Based Definition (MBD), Model-Based Enterprise (MBE), Smart Manufacturing, and Internet of Things (IoT) continue to evolve. For discrete manufacturing, this means CAD interoperability and collaboration to enable the digital thread.

3D CIC has become a yearly barometer of the state of collaboration and interoperability strategy, technology, and solutions for commercial and government organizations. Our presenters and attendees are real-world users who represent the medical, aerospace, defense, electronics, automotive, industrial equipment, and other product development industries, with strong support by technology leaders for CAD collaboration and interoperability.

3D CIC returns to Golden, Colorado for the 2017 event, with the theme: UNITE: Engineering & Shop Floor Collaboration. Real users share their experiences for all stages of the product lifecycle, with the focus on real-world challenges and solutions for turning design concepts into manufacturing product reality using 3D models.

An event about collaboration and interoperability would be nothing without networking. This event is intentionally organized to maximize information sharing and networking with intimate seating (consider unplugging from your laptop), ample breaks, and three happy hours.

MBD/MBE CAD user groups are returning for 2017! Great feedback was provided last year about the coordination of user groups with 3D CIC. Come early to attend one or more MBD/MBE user groups on Monday, October 2, 2017.

Action Engineering produces 3D CIC with the support of 3D CIC’s founder and long-time lead, David Prawel of Longview Advisors. We are grateful for Mr. Prawel’s continued support.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for additional event announcements, registration, and sponsorship opportunities.
