What can 3D printing do for you?
The novelty of 3D printing makes for a fun hobby for some and an industry imperative for others. In the last month we have had members and campers in our MAKE Camp print keychains, chess pieces, and figurines. One of our Maker Fellowship students delved into CAD and designed a compost bin. It’s worth noting that the bin looks like R2D2, is comprised of six separate parts, and measures 12 inches tall. Recently, another member stepped in to learn about the process and the possibility of printing a maquette of a product she is developing. The latter example of prototyping is in line with 3D-printing’s industry application.
ModernTech is an outfit focused on 3D-Printing products and services. In partnership with theClubhou.se and TAG Augusta, ModernTech is offering a Lunch and Learn presentation on additive manufacturing. This event is free and open to the public and will be held on Thursday July 30th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at theClubhou.se. 3D-printing specialist Jim Kolassa of ModernTech will be discussing how 3D-printing is changing the ways products are designed and manufactured. Visit ModernTech’s website here to learn more about what they have to offer.
