The 100 people selected “reflect the breadth of new ideas and new pursuits at display in our business landscape,” says Fast Company editor Robert Safian.  Fu placed 75th on the list.

“Ping Fu has designed a better life for herself and all of us with groundbreaking 3D modeling software,” says the June issue of Fast Company.  “Her latest technical feat easily converts any physical object, from a human foot to a golf course, into a 3D model.”

Geomagic software, with its ability to erase the boundaries between physical and digital worlds, is at the center of a design and manufacturing revolution that is turning mass manufacturing into mass customization.  Applications of Geomagic software include ensuring the safe return of the NASA space shuttle, digital processes at Timberland that speed design and cut waste by 75 percent, and individualized appliances developed at Shriners Hospitals for Children for less-invasive treatment of cleft palate, an application that won the “Rapid Technologies That Will Change the World” award from Desktop Engineering magazine.

“I’m honored to accept this reward on behalf of Geomagic and its customers throughout the world, who continually motivate and inspire me,” says Fu.  “We provide the technology, but it’s our customers who develop the creative applications that help make the world a better place to live and work.”
