Find out if it is applicable for my artistic pursuits.
Since I have very little knowledge of the technology, I would like to learn as much as I can about the technology, what kind of starting materials or programs are used, are there places in St. Louis where one can use a 3D printer (for a fee). Is there interest in, or is it practical to set up a co-op for people to do their own 3D printing?
My background is in art. Sculpture, metalsmithing, and jewelry. I want to explore the use of 3D printing in my artwork. I have also done a lot of teaching and worked in the sales promotion industry in print production.
