    3D printing adds an incredibly powerful tool to the design process. As the industry moves beyond 3D-printed Yoda heads and Pokémon, we unlock even more-dramatic efficiencies and advantages for developers. In this talk, we'll look at how pairing parametric modeling with 3D printing enables users to iterate faster than ever before and build fully functional prototypes. Lastly, we'll explore how 3D printing's "slicer" software is quietly one of the biggest drivers of the technology.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to go beyond plastic trinkets: 3D printing functional prototypes
    • Learn about pairing parametric modeling with 3D printing: fail faster, succeed sooner
    • Learn about Slicer technology and MinFill: how software advancements define 3D printing
    • Learn about disrupting typical design, as well as 3D printing and breakneck iterations
