WMG invites SMEs to explore innovation and technology in new workshops


We are pleased to announce that the WMG SME Group has some new workshops on offer to help SMEs discover innovative solutions to current challenges. Run by industry experts, these two- day workshops will cover:

1. The Visualisation Journey: Product to Digital to VR

Wednesday 27th September  – Thursday 28th September 2017


A ‘hands on’ workshop to demonstrate to SMEs how their product can be converted into digital form, visualised in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) and authentically lit to show how it would appear in a real environment.

This two-day workshop will help SME manufacturers better understand the ‘visualisation journey’: how visualisation of their products in VR/AR can help boost productivity, resulting in improved business growth.

You will also gain direct knowledge from WMG’s highly experienced team who have helped a number of businesses visualise their products authentically and in doing so saved thousands of pounds through avoiding the need for physical prototypes.

2. Design It, Make It, Break It

Wednesday 18th October  – Thursday 19th October 2017

9:30 – 4:30

A two-day workshop to provide insights into the product design and development process using 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. The workshop will also explore how Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) can increase the rate of product development and consider the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure your design survives real world scenarios.

This workshop will help SME manufacturers better understand 3D CAD and how ALM and FEA principles can stimulate new ideas and generate business growth.
