University of Bayreuth, Press Release 144/2022 - 1 September 2022
Invitation to the 23rd Bayreuth 3D Designers' Day
Virtual reality, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing - these technologies have long played an important role in engineering and design. An overview of the latest developments and current issues will be provided by the Bayreuth Designers' Day of the Chair of Design Theory and CAD at the University of Bayreuth on 14 September.

The increasing complexity of technical systems, a wide range of variants, high quality requirements and time-consuming and cost-intensive calculations and tests are challenges that designers master with computer-aided methods. Ac-tual technologies such as artificial intelligence, mixed reality or additive manufacturing are increasingly changing established ways of working. The past few years in particular have revealed existing weaknesses in product development and process chains, but also offered opportunities to accelerate the advancement of new technologies.
The Chair of Engineering Design and CAD at the University of Bayreuth, headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stephan Tremmel, aims to link classic and current issues and to further develop solutions for them. With the Bayreuth 3D Designers' Day, which has been established for years, he offers a neutral platform for the exchange of information and the acquisition of information for creative engineers from industry and research that is probably unique in Germany.
At the Designers' Day on 14 September 2022, which will finally be held in the city again, representatives of small and medium-sized companies as well as students from higher semesters will have the opportunity to learn the latest information at first hand about computer-aided design, layout, simulation and optimisation, additive manufacturing and many other related topics. The lectures combine practical user perspectives and scientific-theoretical approaches. The day offers the opportunity to inform oneself compactly and free of charge about the latest trends and developments through various user presentations in three parallel series of lectures and an extensive company exhibition.
