3-D printing will be a hot topic

The AWFS fair’s College of Woodworking Knowledge will present a two-part seminar on 3-D printing in the Small Shops Ten & Under track.

Part 1: 3-D Printing for Woodworking is scheduled for July 20 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. (PST). Matt Stultz, Make Magazine’s digital fabrication editor and founder of HackPittsburgh and Ocean State Maker Mill, will guide attendees through some of the technologies involved in 3-D printing and help separate fact from fiction. He will address CAD, 3-D scanning, types of 3-D printers, machine control software, 3-D printing materials, and some of the communities that are developing around 3-D printing.

Part 2: 3-D Printing: Applications in Woodworking follows on the same date from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Experts from Autodesk’s Pier 9 and Make Magazine will guide attendees through some of the best examples of how this flexible tool is being used in the woodworking industry, as they share some of their own experiences incorporating one of the oldest maker skills with one of the newest.
