The concept of digital manufacturing combines all technologies that use Numeric Software Control (CNC) and that transmit data directly from a computer to a machine, bypassing drafts. Ilya Tonkig, Kukolyev Sergey, and Kurskova Alexandra are members of Baltexim company’s CNC-technology center, which promotes the technology of digital manufacturing and prototyping in Russia.

At the lecture, they will talk about the design and work of milling machines, 3D printers and scanners, which allow to quickly and accurately create both product prototypes and actual products. They will reflect on the present and the future of CNC technology, and they will demonstrate how extrusion with a 3D printer works.
