Heads up, there is a new idea on the table. Its called the 3D Professional Association. Looks like Ken Smerz, head of Precision 3D Scanning based in Chandler, Arizona has started a not for profit association focused on the 3D profession. An announcement is being planned for SPAR.
The association is going to promote education, best practices and the industry in general. Ken is the Executive Director and he is seeking interested parties to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
