3D printing production – the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file – is still in its infancy, but there are numerous indications that this historic shift is already well underway.
A growing number of innovative companies are experimenting with 3D printers, propelling the technology closer to the mainstream market. Companies like General Electric, Boeing, Ford, Nike, American Pearl, Hasbro, and Hershey’s are already using the technology.
If you’re curious to see how the new technology works then you’re in luck because starting on July 29 the Franklin Institute will be hosting an innovative 3D printing workshop. The workshop will teach you how to turn those designs you’ve imagines into physical formations with just the click of a button.
The workshop will take place on July 29, August 26 and September 19 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. For non-members the cost is $50 and $30 for anyone who will be sharing a computer and print design with another participant. For members the cost is $40 and $25 for anyone who will be sharing a computer and print design with another participant.
To register for this event, call 215-448-1200 (option 4) or visit the Franklin Institute website.
Non-members – $50; $30 for additional participant. Additional participants will be sharing a computer and print design with another participant.
