Moveable spiral pendant Designed by SoJ 2015 DFI student Natalia Antunovity  A symposium and exhibition showcasing technological developments within the industry.

Future Technologies is a dissemination seminar that describes the various steps a company might wish to contemplate and understand if it were considering exploring the potential of adopting Additive Manufacturing Direct Metal Laser Manufacturing/Sintering DMLM technologies as part of its product offering.

We invite you to drop in at any time to this free to attend event allowing you to examine the most up-to-date and emerging of the various digital technologies now available. Attending this event will give a true overview of the many facets of current and future CAD, 3D printing/Additive Manufacturing, laser scanning and many more applicable tooling and technology solutions.

Whether you want to see CAD and 3D printing in action for the first time or perhaps you need to share your successes (and failures) with a likeminded group of your peers then the best way to experience this is at this event. Come along and be in the company of jewellers, designers, giftware manufacturers and other creatives.

There will be numerous opportunities during this day long event to interact and network with the various technology vendors, fellow users and service providers as well as seeing a stunning exhibition of 18 carat gold jewellery manufactured using the most recent addition to the Additive Manufacturing stable of technologies, Direct Metal Laser Melting, which uses the precision of a laser beam to melt and fuse together fine gold powder in order to quite literally ‘print in gold’!
