3D Printing Talk

I recently gave a talk about 3D printing to the Academy of Lifelong Learning .  It went really well, other than that I had a head cold.  I thought I’d share my slides, and provide some links to supporting and bonus material.

The slides for the talk are shared using iCloud, and should work with any recent browser.  The link is RIGHT HERE.

Following are a set of relevant and interesting links about 3D printing.  Several of these topics came up in the Q&A.

There are many, many more examples of the usage of 3D printing.  Leave examples that you’ve found, or think are interesting in the comments!
