Low cost 3D Printing workshop- Trieste, Italy
As part of the 3D Printing for Science and Sustainable Development workshop, Louise Leakey was invited to speak about the African Fossils project in the context of 3D Printing for use in education. A small gathering of some 65 people from many different countries met at the The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, in Trieste, Italy.
Several very interesting talks were given in the course of the three days, as well as an opportunity to play with 8 different low cost printers and to design printable objects as well as to print them.
Louise took the opportunity to print out one of the files (KNMER-1813) from the African Fossils site using the PrintBot Jr and PLA plastic.
