Early Pricing Ends Today for 3D CIC + QIF Symposium

3D CIC focuses on CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product life cycle

Published: Monday, July 31, 2017 - 11:00

(Action Engineering: Lakewood, CO–) -- Register today to take advantage of early pricing for the 2017 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress + Quality Information Framework Symposium. The 3D CIC and QIF Symposium joint event will be held Oct. 3–5, 2017, at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado. The early registration price of $895 for this annual international event ends today, July 31, 2017. The price increases to $995 on August 1.

3D CIC focuses on CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product life cycle. With the 2017 theme of “UNITE: Engineering & Shop Floor Collaboration,” real users share their experiences with turning design concepts into manufacturing product reality using 3D models.

Action Engineering and the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium are partnering to coordinate the QIF Symposium with 3D CIC. The biennial QIF Symposium, QIF Working Group meetings, and a DMSC member meeting will comprise the QIF Summit.

3D CIC + QIF Symposium speakers represent Cisco Systems, DMSC, Gulfstream Aerospace, Hydro-Québec, The Manufacturing Technology Centre, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Newport News Shipbuilding, NIST, Raytheon, Sierra Nevada, TechAzul, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, with more speakers still to be announced.

In addition, model-based definition user groups for Siemens NX, SOLIDWORKS, and Autodesk Inventor users are being offered at an early registration price of $80. The PTC/USER Model-Based Enterprise Technical Committee will meet on Oct. 2, 2017, with an early registration price of $150. MBD user group and PTC/USER prices increase to $95 and $175, respectively, on August 1.
