3D Printing Will Change Everything -- Upcoming Event
On Feb. 18, we will host a provocative discussion, “3D Printing Changes Everything,” on 7th floor conference center of University Hall. A panel of practitioners, designers and technologists will take on the future of 3D printing and how it is changing industries, and how industries are approaching problem solving, design and innovation. Panelists will discuss and predict the impact 3D printing is having on all of our lives.
The panelists will also discuss the ways 3D printing is changing design, innovation, rapid prototyping and will discuss the long-term impact 3D printing will have across consumer and business industries. Join us as we unveil the future of design thinking, rapid prototyping and how all industries are transforming.
Event is free and open to the public, and food will be served!
