Will 3D Printing Change the Way We Think?

Tuesday November 17, 2015

Event Overview:

3D printing has recently emerged as tech’s hot topic with greatest expectations. It gets touted as the innovation destined to transform nearly everything, from manufacturing to medicine to entrepreneurship. With the rise of low-cost 3D printers in recent years, the technology has turned into a movement and a catalyst to disrupt industries, businesses, and conventional ways of doing different things from buying replacement parts to designing your own custom jewelry and accessories. Bio-printing is also quickly becoming more popular, with companies like Organovo testing printed organ tissues. 3D printing is poised to be the epitome of a disruptive technology.

Our distinguished panel will discuss various applications of 3D printing, the markets that will use these technologies, and how will 3D printing come to consumers and become affordable? Other areas that will be covered include – How 3D printing is opening up a new world of creativity for the average consumer, a new paradigm for manufacturing and new opportunities for entrepreneurs. If you have some applications in mind, we can speak about what technology, material, design will be the best option.

If you want to find out how to start with 3D printing for yourself, for your company, or when you have experience but you would like to take it to the next level, you will find the right people to speak about this at the event.

  • Dr Harish Hosalkar, Pediatric and Adult Orthopedic Surgeon
