More and more resources are becoming available for 3D printers around the world. A new magazine, 3D CAD & CAM en Español is now being produced in Spanish and is the first Spanish language serial publication of its kind. The first edition was released this June and a second edition is currently in the works. The magazine comes nearly five years after the first Spanish language web content source www.3dcadportal.com was launched to fill a vacuum in the industry.
The magazine’s editor, Sergio Alvarez, stated that the magazine was started in order to make articles, editorials, and event coverage available to the Spanish-speaking world. He brings more than 20 years of experience in the 3D and additive manufacturing industry to bear in his publication. The magazine was born directly from the website as a way of creating a sort of digest that would not only be easy to browse, but would also create a permanent record of the industry’s development.
There has been significant growth in the use of 3D technologies in Latin America and it is Alvarez’s hope that with this magazine people can begin to connect with each other. In an interview with 3Dprint.com Alvarez stated:
“Before, we all just worked by ourselves or with a couple of people that we knew, and it was hard to know who else was out there working. We also always had to go to English for news. Now, we are starting to have our own conversations. Mexico is becoming a major player in design and assembly, mostly in the automotive and aeronautics industry, but soon these technologies will become more integrated into our regular design practices.”
Alvarez hopes that while this magazine is the first, it won’t be the only for long, as there are many experts and beginners alike throughout the Spanish-speaking world, who are taking interest in 3D technologies.
“3D printing is an integral part of the workflow for many CAD CAM operations, and will be part of our coverage as we look to bring together information about what is happening in the world of design, engineering, and computer aided manufacturing and share it with all who are interested.”
It is available for free download and print copies are being handed out at trade shows. The magazine will cover areas such as 3D design, scanning, and printing as well as other CAD CAM technologies.
