Spend an evening learning about 3D printing (and watching it in action) with AIGA DC and iStrategyLabs!
Registration for this event is now closed. Tickets will be available at the door.
The concept of 3D printing mystifies most people. Although it sounds as if it were ripped straight out of a sci-fi novel, manufacturers have used the technology for years. What’s the deal and why is it becoming such a hot topic?
Since 3D printing has become more affordable, more portable, and more widely covered by the media, people have started to ask questions about its applications. With the right software and the right skills, you can print practically anything—from functional firearms to prosthetic body parts. Needless to say, ethics have been at the center of many recent conversations about the technology.
But what about us—the designers? How can we harness this technology in meaningful ways? How does it disrupt and change design processes? And seriously: Where can we find a 3D printer and when can we start playing with it?
Join us on December 4th to get your questions answered at iStrategy Labs, a fast-moving and forward-thinking digital marketing and design agency in Dupont Circle. The team behind the latest work for Nickelodeon will walk us through their innovative and exciting use of 3D printing. And yes, you’ll get to see their 3D printer in action!
Registration opens on November 20th at noon, and is limited to 125 seats. The event will cost $20 for non-members, $10 for Contributors, and $5 for Supporters and higher membership levels. Learn more about the the benefits of becoming an AIGA member at www.aiga.org/join.
A portion of this event’s proceeds will go to a scholarship for the next generation of designers through AIGA DC’s Continuum Fund.
