Are you interested in 3D printing? Watching it work? What it can do for you? Then join us at our PDM on September 4 to see Doug Lueckemeyer demonstrate a 3D printer in full action! Door prizes will include actual product prototypes produced from a 3D printer.

Can you think of something that you would like to see printed in 3D? Bring your ideas with you to the PDM and share with the rest of us.

Looking forward to seeing you in September and having some fun!
