The Next Step in the Digital Revolution: Home scale manufacturing using 3D printing technology
Presenter: Gil Poznanski, Creative Technologies Activator at City of Melbourne
3D printing is a reality that has been utilised in mainstream manufacturing for prototyping for years. Now that 3D printing has become available for the home hobby market, what does this mean for the home inventor, explorer, maker and tinkerer?
Come along and discover the history of 3D printing, what resources are available, and what the public layman has been using 3D printing for, how it is impacting large business and changing the way that established specialties are scrambling to keep ahead of new ideas and implementation.
During the presentation, we will have a 3D printer building a model, and giving an example of what this technology has to offer.
