Lecture 14 - Fri Oct 10 (8-10) Ljungstig & Tyrland

Time & Place: Friday October 10 at 8-10 in E3.

Guest: Daniel Ljungstig and Anders Tyrland from 3DVerkstan 

Title: 3D Printing: Hype or a truly disruptive technology for the future? Our kids might have the answer! 

Talk: There has been intense media coverage on 3D Printing over the past two years - but the technology has however existed for more than 30 years. Why is this? We will present the current state of 3D Printing and the intense developments going on all over the world at this very moment. We will showcase examples and have an open discussion about the future. Daniel and Anders will also demonstrate creating an item on a desktop 3D Printer. It is possible to apply for borrowing a 3D Printer for experimenting in the course if a project group is formed around this subject.

AboutDaniel is a KTH MSc CS alumni who after 17 years as an IT Project Management Consultant has shifted and started to work with 3D Printing. Anders has worked 13 years in the Media industry as a producer and editor of films, TV shows and commercials. Together they now work with knowledge and new technologies related to 3D Printing and have founded two companies in that business. They are also heavily involved in the Maker Movement, being co-founders of Stockholm Makerspace and they enjoy participating in MakerFairs and related events all over the world.
