SyncFab Design for MFG Opening The specialist audience was welcomed accordingly on the special occassion of MFG Day 2015 and day 1 of the inugural LA Innovation Week – two exciting initiatives highlighting the importance of Manufacturing and Los Angeles as a global destination for innovation. SyncFab’s mission to “Design and Make Local” fit perfectly with these two initiatives. SyncFab Design & MFG Day 15 Opening MFG Day has gained more momentum given the backdrop of Advanced Manufacturing which collectively represents cross-applications of CADCAM, Robotic Automation, Logistics, 3D Printing (Additive) and Tradtional (Subtractive) Manufacturing. Synchronized Fabrication or “SyncFab” is a reference to the synchronization of those parts of modern advanced manufacturing making local industry more accessible to innovative small business hardware startups and more sustainable and eco-conscious by extension. Functionally, the SyncFab platform is a growing community marketplace connecting collaborative product developers and small business hardware startups with established local manufacturers. Following these opening remarks an introduction was made for keynote speech from CAD software industry leader – Autodesk.
