3D printing to change the world!

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 - 14:00 - 15:00


Brook Drumm of Printrbot fame will be on campus to talk about 3D printers and how the space is evolving into a vibrant hobby and professional industry. What are the challenges of new products in this space? What are people printing on these 3D printers that can bring about much needed positive change in their communities?


From Wikipedia:

Printrbot is a 3D printer created by Brook Drumm and originally funded through Kickstarter. It is aimed at beginner home users through its small size factor, low cost and ease of assembly. Printrbot uses fused deposition modelling to produce plastic models of 3D objects.


The session will be in DTC 597 (5th floor) from 2pm to 3pm at the SFSU Downtown Campus, co-located with Prof. Minu Kumar's "Product Development and Management" class. The talk is open to the SFSU campus community.
