3D Printing Is Now for Everyone

Lane Hauck, MS

Not long ago, 3D printing required a refrigerator-size $20,000 machine. Today anyone who wants to learn this skill can produce 3D prints at home for about $200. Several factors have contributed to this revolution, most significantly the benefits of the open-source movement. This presentation begins with a brief history of 3D printing, highlighting the open-source components, then moves to the nuts and bolts of jumping into this exciting technology.

Instructor: Lane Hauck has a BS in Physics and an MS in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science. Early on in his career, he discovered that the programmable calculators he was using were more interesting than the problems he was trying to solve using them. This interest led to an early start into microprocessors and microcontrollers. Hauck has designed acoustic instrumentation, video games, biomedical instruments, and computer chips. He has 37 patents.
