Abstract

This presentation provides an overview of recent advances in 3D printing and digital fabrication. At the heart of these processes is the desire to translate three-dimensional objects designed in the virtual space of the computer into tangible objects. Additive and subtractive processes at a staggering array of scales are being used in a variety of disciplines to produce tangible prototypes and sculptures with increasingly varied functional and material properties-from electronic circuits at nanometer scales, to biological substrates, to high-density tooling, to architecturally-scaled structures and functional firearms.
