The speakers will consider the potential of 3D printing to replace mass production by giving individuals the tools to design and fabricate their own products. They will discuss 3D printing’s potential to impact every field from science and healthcare to art, as well as the challenges and opportunities for established companies in a new, disruptive, ‘maker-led’ economy.
This is an Under 35s Forum event. The event will be followed by a reception.
