3D Printing Symposium
3D Printing Panel

3D Printing Panel

12 November 2013
5:30pm - 8:00pm
Santa Clara, California



3D printing is already influencing how we dress, eat, fly, drive and more. The technology, where a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape is recreated from a digital model blueprint, is fast becoming one of the hottest tech trends of 2013. After all, it has the potential to affect major industries like aerospace, medicine, transportation, and manufacturing. The cost-effective, yet high-quality features of 3D printed objects, along with the accompanying virtual marketplaces and cloud-based consumer software, are bringing the technology within the reach

For more than a decade, PARC has been at the forefront of developing printed electronics (PE). This technology employs advanced materials that can be treated as inks and used to build additively transistors, circuits, sensors, and batteries. Printing functionalities rather than just images on paper unleash “printing as a manufacturing tool." Printed electronics also enable 3D printed objects that are intelligent. Integrating printed electronics with 3D printing introduces (thousands of) new and exciting possibilities in many industries, including healthcare & wellness, sports & fitness, packaging, prescription drugs, and more.
