Imagine the impact of a student touching a mathematical function, studying a deep-sea predator without the need for high-pressure tanks, or feeling the intricacies of rare African art - all made possible by 3-D printing. Engineers and designers have been using 3-D printing to create prototypes for over a decade, but in recent years 3-D printing has become more sophisticated and less costly. In this workshop, you'll learn about the 3-D process, see a variety of 3-D examples, and hear how professors have used this technology to enliven the learning process.
