3D Printing: Myth vs Truth

Sunday, March 15
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Long Center
West Pincer Lounge
701 W Riverside Dr

From a major VC firm’s thirty million dollar investment in the industrial-grade 3D printing space, to the news that Home Depot is one of the major retailers to sell consumer-friendly 3D printers, it’s clear that 3D printing has reached its inflection point.

And perhaps its hype point, too.

The technology is decades old, but now there’s an ecosystem in place that moves it beyond the maker edges to mainstream center. This panel will provide an insider’s view on the myth vs. truths of 3D printing and where the industry is heading.
