months event will focus on 3D in the Engineering Realm. We will have two
presenters covering the Engineering side of workflows in 3D. First we will have
Luke Gustafson present on Operation Manual Development, recently he was a
featured artist on nPower. Our second presenter will be our AAUGA President
Larry Kleinkemper. He will show us his process of scanning buildings and
environments and creating computer models from that
I encourage all 3D Artists, Freelancers, Students, Hobbyists to come out and see the core of product development.
