Tech Tuesday: MakerBot and 3D Printing

On July 29th (originally scheduled for the 29th April), we have a very exciting Tech Tuesday focused on 3D Printing, with a live demonstration:

MakerBot 3d printer


3D Printing is the process of creating a solid object from a digital model. With the right equipment and designs, you can print virtually anything. The technology has been around since the 1980s, but in recent years the price of a 3D printer has dropped dramatically. Consumer units can be purchased for as little as $3,000. These printers are affordable, personal fabrication tools, compact enough to sit on any desktop, and can allow anyone at any skill level to become producers, inventors and artists.

3D printers, in an academic setting, could allow students to participate in project-based learning that is experiential in nature with real-world applications. 3D printing engages students in the world around them, kindles a curiosity about how machines work, how objects fit together, and how the designers, architects, and inventors who build the products, spaces and technology in their lives have found solutions to a variety of design problems.

Mike Pritchard, Enterprise Account Executive at MakerBot, will demonstrate 3D printing, how Innovation Centers are transforming education, how 3D printing turbocharges rapid prototyping, and answer your questions.


MakerBot Industries is a Brooklyn, New York-based company founded in January 2009 producing 3D printers. They have distributed about 45, 000 3D printers worldwide.

The session will take place in DPC 5800 (Executive Boardroom) on July 29, 2014 from 10-11AM.

Mike Pritchard, Enterprise Account Executive at MakerBot, is coming to DePaul on April 29th to demonstrate 3D Printing. Over the weekend, Mike sent me a photo he took at the University of Illinois MakerLab. The MakerLab is part of the business school, but also services many different departments.
