The Expanding Role of Desktop 3D Printing

This presentation offers an introduction to the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer - a fast, easy-to-use, and affordable tool for making professional-quality models. Attendees will learn how desktop 3D printers can dramatically reduce the time and cost of rapid prototyping, model making, product design, and concept development. The presentation will walk participants through the 3D printing process, step-by-step, starting with a CAD file and ending with a printed part. Samples of prototypes, parts, and models will show off capabilities of the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. In addition, attendees will learn the properties of PLA filament - a high detail, high strength bio plastic that can render models in great detail.
