In March 64 Layer Geeks explored the many options for 3D scanning and got to see large format industrial prints. We kicked off with a high-level overview of what 3D printing is and how it's used. Next, people had a minute to shout out about their projects. Mortuary applications for 3D printing- unforgettable! Then, we took a look at updates in the industry and talked about how we, as a community, can work together. Next, Skylr of scanned a slice of pizza and showed us the many ways to do it. Next, Alex of ProtoPlant regaled us with stories of printing on industrial machines, showing us actual large-format prints as well as finely detailed chainmail.

In April, we'll take a look at how 3D printing is literally changing lives by giving people back the use of their limbs.
