MEV Innovation: The 3D Printing Revolution
May 6, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Can’t Find What You’re Looking For? Make It Yourself With 3D Printing
The 3D printing revolution is here and has the potential to turn each of us into designers and innovators rather than just being consumers of standardized, off the shelf products. Join LIL 3D Printing/Memorables for an interactive presentation and discussion on the evolution of 3D printing and photogrammetry as it moves beyond prototyping and niche manufacturing.
Mark Sherman, owner of LIL 3D Printing and Michelle Hawco owner of Memorables Inc., will discuss the evolution of the technology and its use and highlight the revolution it is creating by unlocking the world’s creative potential.www.lil3dprinting.com
Learn how 3D printing companies are:
• Promoting design democracy by empowering users to identify and create solutions to address their specific needs or desires, outside of the standard box.
• Combining 3D imaging and printing to improve product quality, reduce production times and create personalized custom products.
• Enabling entrepreneurship among artists, designers, architects, engineers and craftsman.
LIL 3D Printing is an independent 3D printer located in Milton. Currently they are working on product prototypes, tooling, harsh environment coatings, artistic models, toys, games, one of a kind gifts as well as their our own product line of tech inspired gadgets. The company originally started as an off shoot of Kaida Games, a mobile applications development company. The love of 3D art over powered the desire to make games and evolved into today’s 3D imaging and printing company. Moving from their first desktop ABS printer, they quickly had to add larger commercial grade machines for added capacity. Soon they out grew their existing equipment, and its lack of colours. After upgrading to a full color 3D Printer, and then another, they most recently added a commercial grade ABS printer to the mix to satisfy the need for producing higher grade prototypes.
Memorables Inc., which opened this year, uses photogrammetry to produce 3D images of people and pets; which can be printed as keepsakes, used to produce custom fitted prototypes, assess body shape and extract measurements, or produce digital assets for animation and video games.
