3D Printing Applications & Uses

October 14, 2015

Sean O’Reilly of Boston’s 3D Printsmith will talk to us about his experiences with 3D Printing and Scanning. Sean plans to provide a brief overview of how various 3D Printing methods work, different methods of scanning objects, current and future applications including Medical Applications.

Sean is the Founder of a local 3D company called 3D Printsmith, specializing in optical scanning, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, and project engineering services. Projects & clients include include MIT (where he also guest lectures on designing for 3D printing), Harvard, Partners Healthcare, Boston area Museums, and many local sculptors and product development companies. He holds a B.Sc in Plastics Engineering from Athlone Institute of Technology, Ireland.

3D Printing is a popular topic at the moment and the processes involved from scanning to printing can be time-consuming and complicated. After this talk you will have a good idea of how 3D Printing works, what’s involved in scanning a object to be modeled or printed, and have an overview of the current applications that 3D Printing are currently used for, and what this technology may be used for in the future.

If you have any specific questions or areas you would like Sean to cover please let us know!
