3D Printing has been making headlines in recent years. The DIY community has moved it from the realm of expensive Aerospace Prototypes to under $500 hobbyist machines.
The talk will give a brief overview of the various 'additive manufacturing' technologies and demonstrate the low cost of 3D Printers.
