3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), refers to various processes used to synthesise a three-dimensional object. In 3D printing, successive layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source. (source: Wikipedia.org)
This lecture by Professor Iain Todd from the University of Sheffield is a presentation on the most recent developments in rapid prototyping using additive manufacture - 3D printing.
Start time: 7pm.
Refreshments will be available before the start of the lecture from 6.30pm in either Room 002 or 003, Babbage Building.
