3D Printing -- Learn what it is and how you will be able to use it

3D Printing is a term that doesn't describe what the tool is and what it you will be able to do with it.

This is part of Wikipedia's description of it:

"The technology is used in jewellery, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many other fields." (Bolding added.)

Here is more from Wikipedia:

"Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting and drilling.

"3D printing is usually performed by a materials printer using digital technology. Since the start of the twenty-first century there has been a large growth in the sales of these machines, and their price has dropped substantially.

You can find more Wikipedia explanations and more examples of its uses here.

Our speaker will be Mike Martin. Mike will talk about 3D printing and how his company uses it. But he will also have a live demo with a 3D printer to how the printing works.

More about Mike will be shown here later.

Come to the meeting and you will be amazed by what you will see.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
