• Welcome

    Welcome to the PLM Components Innovation Conference, taking place on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th September in Downing College, Cambridge, UK.

    We invite customers, partners and analysts to come and network with an outstanding line-up of industry experts and CxOs and share ideas, best practices and applications for Parasolid, D-Cubed, JT, HOOPS Exchange, HOOPS Visualize and Kineo.

     

    Discover how software vendors spanning 3D product design, simulation, manufacturing and visualization are benefitting from openly accessible and flexible software components in the light of transformational technologies that impact our industry, such as additive manufacturing, cloud/mobile, robotics and deep learning.

     

    Cambridge provides the ideal setting for our conference, with its rich history of geometric modelling that dates back to the 1960s.
