In April 2017, the “Experience Day by Roland & Promakim” interactive event provided attendees with the latest best practices and solutions using Roland DG technology at ATÖLYE. Around 200 people including makers, designers, students from colleges and store staff attended the event to discover what they can create with Roland DG devices in four areas, including print & cut, textile, UV printing, and 3D digital fabrication. Roland DG users shared their experiences with visitors. You can check out video highlights of the event below.
