April 2, 2013 at T.S. McHugh's

In this Queen Anne Science Café, UW Tacoma’s Mark Ganter, Ph.D., Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, discussed 3D printing. From building tools to creating food, 3D printing, or the process of making solid objects by printing layers of materials on top of each other, can meet a variety of needs. Join UW’s Mark Ganter, Ph.D., to explore what 3D printing is, how it’s used, and what it might mean for the future.
