Short Courses

3D Printing for Scientific Applications (Hands On)

Sunday, February 4
8:00 AM - 3:15 PM
Location: 17A

The availability of low cost, high quality 3D printers has led to the rapid adoption of 3D printing by practitioners in numerous fields, including the life sciences. Printing technologies and materials have expanded beyond those involving polymers and metals to include paper, cells and other biological materials, enabling many new and unexpected applications.
In this course we will cover the process of creating 3D-printed objects, with an emphasis on applications in the life sciences. We will survey the state-of-the-art of 3D printing and then discuss the practical considerations of creating your own objects, from initial conception to physical reality. We'll demonstrate several techniques for generating 3D models, discuss how to optimize models for printing, and compare printing techniques and material options. Attendees will have the option to generate 3D models using publicly available software on their personal computer. Live demonstrations using a 3D printer during the course will provide hands-on interaction by all attendees.
