San Francisco Bay ACM & Silicon Valley ACM SIGGRAPH Joint Meeting

Geoffrey Doyle, GrowShapes


6:30 Food & Networking 
7:00 Presentation

Event Details

GrowShapes CEO Geoffrey Doyle will begin with a brief history of 3D printing, the various types of technologies that exist, where we are today, and what lies ahead.

More importantly, he will discuss how the development of new structures (or combining existing structures in new ways) enables the development of new 3D printing materials. Geoffrey will also illustrate how new structures and 3D printing technologies will dramatically impact the way prototypes and products are manufactured.

The seminar will also highlight the broad range of industries which are being impacted such as engineering, manufacturing, medical, robotics, automotive, jewelry and art, just to name a few.
