RU3D? 3D Printing and the Future of How We Make Things

Howon Lee (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering)

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a manufacturing technique in which a 3D physical object is created by directly joining constituent materials. 3D printing has received significant attention in recent years due to its potential impact in industry, defense, healthcare, and even for hobbyists. This seminar series will introduce the principles of various 3D printing technologies, their capabilities and limitations, and emerging applications of 3D printing. In addition, recent implementations of 3D printing will be introduced including 4D printing and bio-printing. Students will have opportunities to use 3D printers to print their own 3D designs.
