- Intro to 3D Printing
February 20, 2016
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
What’s the Deal?
What’s all the fuss about 3D printing? It seems like everyone is using it these days. From companies “printing” machines to bakers “printing” sugar cubes
that look like pop art. But what does this process look like exactly?
Pietro will offer an introduction to this fascinating technology with a guided tour of his home-made 3D printer.
Starting from the visual explanation of what 3D printing means, you will learn the inner workings of a 3D printer and see the steps from the conception of an object to its realization. It is also your opportunity to ask all you always wanted to know about using or building 3D printers.

Meet our expert: Pietro
After studying aerospace engineering, Pietro pursued a career as a researcher in the oil and gas industry. While is day job is mostly spent on computers, he reserves the crafting and tinkering for the spare time (when he is not cooking, that is). Wood working, metal working and robotics are his favorite ways of relaxing.
