AIA Continuing Education
3D Printing Technology Briefing
BluEdge will be providing a 3D Printing/Rapid Prototyping presentation. BluEdge is trained by Objet Geometries, Stratasys, and Materialize. The demonstration will cover the benefits for architects and engineers to prototype their designs, how other Architects (both locally and nationally) are using this technology (reducing costs, marketing, etc.) along with learning the plusses and minuses of different 3D printing processes. Everyone in attendance will be able to hold and feel all of the sample models of all the different technologies, and have the ability to ask any questions they may have.
Branding with Graphics in the Built Environment
The presentation is focused on architects and designers who have the need to brand space with environmental graphics. Participants will be guided though the essentials of branding space; communicating with your vendor, graphic resources, and options for printing and display. Samples of cutting edge graphic solutions will be presented.
Taking MPS to the Next Level
BluEdge will be providing a Managed Print Services presentation. BluEdge has a long history in the world of MPS and is looking to show ways of expanding programs to be more encompassing. The demonstration will cover the benefits for architects and engineers of a complete MPS program and the advantages of expanding the scope of the programs.

There will be a discussion of VR deliverables and a demonstration of both desktop options and wearables. We will speak on the process of photo-realistic visualizations and best practices to achieve optimal results.
Other (Non-AIA) Classes
Hyperlinking / BlueBeam (Paid Class)
BluEdge, a leader in document management for the AEC industry, will give an overview of the latest trends in project dashboard creation and hyperlinking techniques to improve team collaboration, enhance project communication and maintain knowledge continuity. This overview will also feature a brief demo of the industry standard BlueBeam software solution.
We will cover the mindful MATERIALS initiative, and how they are leading the sustainable products movement in the built industry. Then, we'll present our own line of mindful MATERIALS listed wall coverings and wraps, and their application in both architecture and construction industries.
