HUGE shout out to Karen Lewis, our director of marketing of Microsol Resources, for coordinating an amazingly successful event. Originally slated for the Rose Auditorium in the new Cooper Union building, we had moved the event to the Foundation Building in The Great Hall for the enormous interest. Did you know that The Great Hall once had 8 presidents had spoken there since it’s opening in 1858, with Lincoln accounting his own presidency to his speech in The Great Hall in 1860?! Sounds awesome? It is!
We have had our own 3D printer grace our offices for the past year or so, and we’re always looking for things to print. Our offices have printed stuff all over the place, along very detailed models that spin, rotate, and flip to mimic real objects (steering column, ball bearings, wrenches, screw cap bottle). Yes, you can print components that move with the Z Corp machines. It’s a lot cheaper than most people imagine, and the detail is amazing. If you’re awesome enough to tour firms like Pelli or Foster, ask to check out their 3D printing labs and see for yourself. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
