Mastergraphics Presents: The Future of Making Things

MasterGraphics is proud to present the Future of Making Things. 

Societal changes, increased customer expectations and disruptive technologies are changing the manufacturing landscape at an alarming pace.  And regardless of company size or the products you produce, your competitive advantage relies on adapting to these changes.  



Manufacturing is changing at an alarming pace. Your competitive advantage relies on adapting to it. Learn how:

  • New technologies such as additive manufacturing, cloud design, simulation, and mobile are driving speed and disruption into all aspects of manufacturing and how you can incorporate new strategies for success
  • We must change to meet new customer demands for customization and configuration
  • Connected products (IoT) and network intelligence is the new normal
  • An integrated product development platform to help shorten delivery cycles

During our presentation, we will be focusing on three trends:

  1. The means of intellectual and physical production - how we design and fabricate things - are becoming more accessible to everyone.
  2. Demand - who the customers are, where they are, and what they want - is fundamentally changing.
  3. Smarter and more interconnected Products - are becoming the norm and will have major impacts on external (differentiation, preference) and internal (process and data) factors. 



We're blurring the line between Manufacturing and AEC!

JP Cullen, Wisconsin’s largest self-performing general contractor, presents an innovative approach to prefabrication and modularization in the traditional construction industry.

Attendees will leave the session with a deeper understanding of how building components should be designed to be manufactured for the construction industry. 



3 hours that will show you how Buildings, Design and Workflow are changing and how the owners and designers are being impacted:

  • Reality Capture
    • 3D Scanning is being used by architects and contractors to save money by reducing errors and time on-site for measurements. So how does it work, and why should you be using it
  • Conceptual Design
    • A napkin used to be the canvas of a building’s first thought. You now have the ability to sketch in 3D, how does that change design? Workflow? Can you actually USE that “sketch” for something more than sopping up a spill?
    • How do you explain the design you see in your head in three dimensions to someone that does not have your training and can’t seem to get past it won’t look “Just like that” ? There are tools available that are helping those creating design to share that design, quickly, easily, and they are winning work with it.
  • Engineering
    • The façade is important, it houses those things that allow it to “work”. What makes it efficient, and how are great designers using what they know to make buildings perform more efficiently?
  • Virtual Design Documentation & Conflict Resolution
    • Conflict in building design. How do we reduce it and how much time can it save us? Look at what workflows and tools are helping keep projects on time and under budget.

The Breakout session is limited to 20 people and we’ll take a deeper dive into the technology being used in design.
