On Episode 21 of the "Sheet Metal Shaping Podcast" we have multi generational automotive craftsman Rob Ida from Rob Ida Concepts + Ida Automotive in New Jersey.

In this episode we chat about 3D metal shaping, what it means for the industry, and how it can be strategically used in the future.

We also discuss:
- "Minimizing production runs", and on to the next
- Being an artist vs businessman
- Finding balance in this business and being kind to yourself
- “Throw away hours” and reducing waste

- What is the Figur system of 3D metal shaping?
- How does it work?
- Is this going to replace skilled labor?
- 3rd party forming so you don’t have to own the machine
- Pushing this technology to the limit

- Using this for brightwork, trim, replacement panels
- Balancing hourly labor cost vs using technology to be more competitive
- Old school vs New Tech – Which is better?
- Is this tech deflationary?
- What can this machine not do?
- What does this cost?
