The 3-D Printing Revolution Dreams made real, one layer at a time

Sarah, you mentioned 3-D printing in this week’s lecture.  I happened upon this article – such a crazy concept to get your head around!

  1. Thanks for this article! For those of you physically located in Madison, you may wish to check out Sector67, which has numerous 3D printers that you may use, a special student membership rate for which all of you would qualify, and classes to learn more about 3D printing tech. I took one of these classes late last week and wrote up an article about my experience. Check it out here: http://illusionofvolition.com/2013/02/23/i-made-that/

  2. I was thinking about 3D printers while I was reading the article by Yan Quan Li. The article mentioned that the Canadian National Institute was digitizing braille books to be made available online. With a 3D printer and a basic base for the braille to be printed onto, the books could be fairly simple to print out in remote communities (as always the money for the technology would be a barrier)
