Unpicking the hype of 3D Printing


David ten Have visits our School of Engineering this week, to present a high-level tour of digital fabrication and 3D printing in particular.

David's presentation will unpick some of the hype, address some of the strengths, highlight the weaknesses and address some of the opportunities. The presentation will not focus on the technical process, but will look at the social, design and economic contexts.
