Can 3D Printing Go Green?
730 Montgomery St. San Francisco, CA 94111
But with the growing revolution in 3D printing comes growing waste. How can we build integrated system solutions that favor recycling and sustainable, compostable materials (biomaterials) that still fulfill all the technical requirements to be used at the large-scale?
On May 2-4, join swissnex San Francisco, Startup Nectar, and swisscleantech for a series of inspiring lectures and hands-on events that attempt to answer these questions and examine the possibilities (and challenges) of 3D printing and biomaterials.
Hear from leading scholars and entrepreneurs about the bright and sustainable future for in-home manufacturing. Make your own biomaterial and put it to the test in a 3D printer. And discover how innovative companies are taking cues from nature to make their technologies and solutions cleaner.
Thursday, May 2: The Ethics and Sustainability of 3D Printing, evening conference and panel discussion
Friday, May 3: Sustainable 3D Printing Summit, day-long workshop for 3D printing experts
Saturday, May 4: DIY Biomaterials: A Factory in Your Kitchen, afternoon workshop
