3D Printing & Design Workshop

Presented by California University of Pennsylvania’s Southpointe Center for Innovation

In a State of the Union address, President Obama said that 3D printing "has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost anything."

What do you know about 3D design, 3D printing and scanning – even 3D software?

Will 3D printing be the next major technological revolution?

Imagine villages in the developing world printing parts for farm equipment or water pumps, and the solar panels that drive them. Imagine mobile production plants quickly deployed in disaster zones, printing out anything from arm splints to tent stakes.

This workshop includes a demo of 3D printing and students will use 3D software to customize an item for themselves, working in teams of two. Their file will be emailed to them so they can have it printed. The students will vote on the coolest design executed in their workshop. The designers will be sent their free 3D printed creation!

Science and technology topics include:
IT, Business, Manufacturing, Nanotechnology, and Graphics

Capacity: 30
