University of Washington, Seattle
Hosted by the UW Strategic Research Initiative for Additive Manufacturing, this day-long event offers an unprecedented chance to witness the latest advances in 3-D printing and scholastic research for one of the most critical societal opportunities in modern history.
Our faculty, students and corporate partners are working together to identify and evaluate the true potential for additive manufacturing technologies to fulfill the needs of emerging technology and industry. Topics of discussion will include 3-D printing related to new polymeric material compositions, micro-architectured materials, art/architecture, medicine, prosthetic development, and microfluidics.
* The post-symposium reception will be co-hosted by Fathom Inc. which has a facility just blocks away from the UW campus. This is an opportunity to see live demonstrations of the most advanced 3D printers that are available on the market, while enjoying light appetizers and beverages with symposium participants. A shuttle service will be provided to transport (8 minutes one way) attendees to and from the Fathom facility.
