Morning Forum (9am until 1pm)
Speakers from industry, education, research and the creative communities will present on a broad range of topics, from how they are using 3D printers in their work, through to the impact that these technologies are beginning to have on diverse fields including clothes and footwear design, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, and the medical industries. During the break, participants will get a chance to see 3D printers in action.

- Gavin Artz (ANAT)
- Researchers from the University of South Australia
- Other speakers to be confirmed.
Afternoon Technical Workshop (2pm to 4pm)
A limited number of participants will learn about the technologies involved in more detail, from the basics of 3D design through to the science behind 3D printing. articipants will get the chance to try out some of the technologies involved themselves.
I know there isn't a lot of notice, but it should make for a very interesting day. I'll be assisting in a presentation of various software available to artists and designers that aren't the usual CAD options - thus mentioning / demonstrating Blender.
Hope to see some of you there!
