Advances in 3D printing technology and materials have enabled many new applications in 3D modeling, prototyping and manufacturing in fields including engineering, biomedicine, and chemicals/pharmaceuticals. From perspectives of library-based 3D printing services and a visualization software developer, the panel will introduce principles of 3D printing technologies and associated material science; discuss applications and potential of 3D printing for visualization in research, STEM education, and industry; and provide insights on 3D printing service operations, including service models, opportunities, community impacts and partnerships.

Program Takeaways

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of contemporary 3D printing technologies and trends and comparisons to "traditional" fabrication techniques.

  2. Participants will learn how 3D printing technologies are being used to advance research and education in a variety of STEM disciplines.

  3. Participants will have opportunity to interface with presenters to inquire how 3D printing and related technologies may be useful and appropriate to explore or support in their own workplace.
