STATEMENT OF A TRAINING PARTICIPANT:
“The 3D modeling training was very useful for me, and it came in the right time. Incorporating 3D design in the production companies and with the designers means that there will be a certain future progress in sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness in each stage of the production line manufacturing. This is an incentive for future collaborations that will have an improved cross-sectoral cooperation with no barriers.”
