The popular Inside 3D Printing show that travels the world bringing thought leaders in the 3D Printing space to share the latest and greatest with enthusiasts via lectures, keynotes, an expo and demonstrations has expanded in New York City to an entire 3D Printing Week.
The week kicks off with a MeetUp at the iMakr Store on Allen Street and there are a myriad of cool events around town. You can get the full list here but the highlights for me are:
HCx3DP, the HealthCare x 3D Printing brainchild of New Yorker Land Grant, will feature 2 special Panels for the event. HCx3DP – Hyper’d Medical Devices on Thursday April 16 is a panel discussion that explores “How 3D Printed Medical Devices are Successful Despite Cost Slashing, Hyper-Fast Delivery, EPA Dithering, IoT Hacking Threats, etc.” Participants include Danny Cabrera, CEO & Co-Founder, BioBots, a desktop bio-materials 3D printer and Tammy Ogletree, Account Manager, North America, Mimics Innovation Suite, Materialise Biomedical Engineering Software & Services. In my role with Potomac Photonics, Inc., I’ll be speaking about Potomac’s work in microfabrication for medical devices and biotech incorporating 3D Printing with UV laser micromachining. The venue for this panel is Huge, Inc. at 45 Main Street, Suite 220, DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY.
On Friday, attention will turn to HCx3DP – Effective Public Policy in the Age of Disruption. Panelists include Andrew O’Shaughnessy, Project Manager, Health Tech, Center for Economic Transformation, New York City Economic Development Corporation, Jonathan Askin, Technology Law Professor, Brooklyn Law School, and David Solomonoff, President, New York Chapter, Internet Society.
3D Systems’ Cubify consumer line of 3D Printers will create a Pop Up Shop, featuring 3D printables from fashion, decor, craft, toys, 3DMe® collectibles and ultra cool tech gear including the new EKOCYCLETM Cube® the venture will.i.am has created for 3D Systems with Coke. You’ll also be able to purchase fashion and home products from 3D Systems’ own FreshFiber line, as well as cool products designed and 3D Printed by NOOKA, United Nude, 360Heros and Makies.
Hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it to New York this year look for my blog posts right here during and after the entire 3D Printing week.
