Sunnyvale, Calif. — Rapidform Inc. announced the first ever Rapidform Success Training Conference. This exclusive event is available to users of Rapidform XOR, XOV, XOS and RapidWorks to sharpen their skill set in 3D scanning, reverse engineering and quality inspection. More than just a user conference, the Success Training Conference focuses exclusively on hands-on training to ensure that every Rapidform user gets the most value out of his or her software. The inaugural conference will be held at the Las Vegas Hilton, April 14-17, 2009.

Every course is limited to no more than 15 trainees to ensure that every attendee gets the most possible value from the conference.
Attendees will also have the ability to become a Rapidform Certified Professional via an exam after the conference. This newly available recognition is invaluable to 3D scanning service providers and others to set themselves apart in the world of 3D scanning.
Success Conference attendees will be able to network with some of the most expert users of 3D scanning technology in North America. An evening industry reception hosted by Rapidform will also allow attendees to experience the latest in 3D scanning technology, from laser and white light scanners to CT and 3D X-ray.
