‘Innovation in 3-D printing: A review of the recent Consumer Electronics Show’
JPL materials scientist and Caltech visiting associate Doug Hofmann will speak Thursday, Feb. 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hub, 111-104.
3-D printing is one of the largest key disrupters in the current information technology decade and will continue to be for years to come. The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show featured the largest-ever display of 3-D printing technologies aimed mainly at consumers or small companies.
Hofmann will focus on the emerging technologies related to 3-D printing that were displayed and how they might affect JPL’s near-term needs. The talk will also feature some of the 3-D printing work that is already being done at JPL.
The workshop is part of the Learn, Experience, and Participate (LEAP) Innovation series sponsored by the Office of the CIO.
