3D Printing Materials and Processes Presentation at MAD in NYC

Posted by in Events

As part of our 3D printing education outreach at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC Shapeways is hosting a presentation, an Intro to 3D Printing, Software, Materials, and Processes at 7pm on Thursday 14th of November 2013.

Presented by Duann Scott, the session will outline the major processes used in 3D printing such as SLS, SLA, FDM, Polyjet and more, explaining the process uses and limitations.  We will also cover many of the materials commonly used in 3D printing such as Nylon, Acrylic, Stainless Steel, Ceramics etc. covering the material properties and design guidelines, how to optimize for the materials and what to avoid.  We will also introduce some software, from 3D scanning and repair through to 3D modeling tools such as Rhino, Solidworks, Tinkercad, Meshmixer and the 123D suite.

This will not be a ‘learn to 3d model session’, but aimed at giving people an understanding of the materials and processes they are designing for.

Entry to the presentation is free with your MAD ticket, Thursday evening is ‘pay what you wish’ at the Museum after 6pm.

See you there.

    Aw, this was a very nice post. Spending some time
    and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot
    and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

    Thank you, best regards,
