3D Printing: Small object, big impacts
3D printing appears everywhere, not only does the media report about breakthroughs in medical procedures, the technology is also within reach for every digitally skilled handyman. Dr. Toon Roels (Materialise) elaborates on the different technologies that hide under the collective name of 3D Printing, the physical and chemical processes that underlie, and what precisely makes this production technique so different from the traditional manufacturing processes. We look at what is already possible today, what the major research fields are, and what impact 3D printing can have on our industry and everyday environment.
The lecture will take place in auditorium D0.07 at the VUB, campus Etterbeek, Pleinlaan 2, 1050 Brussel.
Attending the lecture is free for members of KVCV, others pay € 4 (payment cash on the spot).
The lecture starts at 19h00. After the lecture the attendees are invited for a reception in the corridors.
