From Dreams to Reality: The Magic of 3D Printing

In this talk, we embark on a journey from the realm of imagination to the tangible world, exploring the transformative power of 3D printing. With a blend of humour and insight, we delve into how this revolutionary technology turns mere dreams and spools of filament into concrete reality. We'll have a real 3D printer on stage, breathing life into a model right before your eyes. This isn't just a talk; it's a live showcase of the future being printed layer by captivating layer.

3D Modeling

As we unravel the mysteries of 3D printers, attendees will gain a firsthand understanding of the inner workings of these remarkable machines. But the learning doesn't stop there; we also dive into the art and science of 3D modelling, where ideas are sculpted in the digital ether before being brought to life. Additionally, we'll show you where to find and download free 3D models, enabling anyone to start turning other people’s creative ideas into their own reality.

Join us as we journey from the whimsical to the practical, demonstrating that with a bit of filament, a dash of creativity, and the push of a button, the only limit to what you can create is your imagination. Welcome to the magical world of 3D printing, where your dreams aren't just dreams — they're the next object on the print bed.
