3D Printing Can Change the World
September 21, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Can a 3D printing manufacturer change the world? Detroit native Samantha Snabes wants to change lives through 3D printing. Please join her to learn how she plans to revolutionize the face of rapid prototyping, by creating a new gold rush in recyclables.
Samantha, co-founder at Kickstarter funded startup re:3D Inc.® is breaking through the current limitations of 3D printing to unlock new applications and growth markets worldwide.
Gigabot, re:3D’s flagship technology, enables industrial strength, large format 3D printing at an affordable price point. With a build volume of eight cubic feet and robust construction, Gigabot can print objects up to 30x larger than competing desktop models.
The Texas-based company has sold printers to customers in 50 countries. They include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, NASA (which has five) and the Federal Aviation Administration. Universities that have purchased Gigabots include the the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, the University of Texas the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and local Lawrence Tech University.
