Presentation Title: Renaissance Engineering via Additive Manufacturing
Abstract: Additive manufacturing, commonly referred to as 3D printing is a disruptive technology destined to inspire creative and technical minds for future innovation in our lives. An excellent analogy can be drawn from the progress in 2D printing, which evolved from carved wooden blocks to printing press and modern computer-printers. This talk will survey the potential future of manufacturing by 3D printing concept for customized, on-demand, on-site, and distributed innovation, which will allow us to creatively engage in science and technology in our everyday lives..
