3D Printer World Expo 2015

Written by

3D Printer World returns to the Marriott Burbank Convention Center on January 29th. The Expo, which was launched in Burbank in January of 2014, has been expanded in both length and scope to meet strong business and consumer demand.

“Southern California is a hotbed of 3D printing activity,” says Bob Titsch, show director for 3D Printer World. “As the first event to bring the entire 3D printing ecosystem under one roof, our show in January 2014 was standing room only. This year’s expo has an expanded show floor to accommodate more exhibits from leading industry vendors and features new attractions and experiences for attendees. We’ve taken the industry’s main event and made it even bigger and better.”

This year’s expo includes the return of crowd favorites such as 3D printer drawings and giveaways, a 3D print art gallery, live design demos and contests on center stage, as well as some exciting additions, including:

  • A new 3D Printing Boot Camp seminar track

  • A new Markets and Business Applications seminar track

  • The 3DPlusMe Experience: This attraction will let attendees get a 3D face scan, cast themselves as a Marvel superhero, see themselves as that hero and, if they wish, order their personalized 3D printed character. Every attendee who gets a scan will have it emailed to them as a picture, and a few printed versions will be given away in drawings too.

  • Movie Magic: 3D printed costumes and other machinations from special effects wizards who bring the visions and imaginations of Hollywood's filmmakers to life will be on display. Several pieces and props from special effects companies such as 3D Systems’ Gentle Giant Studios, New Deal Studios and others will be featured.

  • Visionaries of the Additive Future Exhibit: Visionary artists, designers, engineers and architects are using new conceptual workflows and creative processes to push design to the limits and explore the boundaries of 3D printing. This special display will showcase some of the more exciting explorations of new ideas, forms and structures.

  • DIY Sand Casting from PLA Demonstration: This live casting demo will cover the process of using inexpensive FDM personal 3D printers to produce objects that can be converted to metal by employing PLA as a castable material.

  • SeeMeCNC’s 16-foot-tall ‘PartDaddy’ 3D printer in action! With a print volume of 4’ by over 9’, this massive Deltabot just might be the largest FDM printer in the world.

  • VIP Exhibit Hall Preview and Cocktail Reception on opening night (requires seminar ticket to attend)

Early bird discounts are available through December 15th on all levels of access (exhibit hall only, one day seminar and full seminar packages).

3D Printer World Burbank 2015 brings together the largest range of 3D printers, technology and professionals ever assembled under one roof. The three-day 3D printing event, which includes exhibits, demonstrations, education tracks, contests and networking opportunities, takes place January 29-31 at the Marriott Burbank Hotel and Convention Center.

3D Printer World Expo and Made In Space are pleased to announce that the first manufacturing device ever used off-planet will be on display at 3D Printer World Expo in Seattle before it’s put to work aboard the International Space Station. To celebrate this technological milestone and to demonstrate the incredible potential for off-world manufacturing, Made In Space also has teamed with 3D Printer World Expo to provide Expo participants with a chance to have their own idea printed in space.

“Made In Space has developed the first micro-gravity tested 3D printer and, when this printer goes to work aboard the International Space Station this fall, it will usher in a new era of possibilities for off-world manufacturing and repair, not to mention provide a practical foundation for the development of the space economy,” says Bob C. Titsch, show director for 3D Printer World events. “In honor of this achievement, Made In Space has graciously offered to give one lucky Expo attendee an opportunity to have something printed in space. Whatever it is, it will be an incredible collector’s item. We can’t thank everyone at Made In Space enough for providing our attendees with such a unique chance at history.”

“In 2010, we identified that 3D printing was the key to enabling space colonization in our lifetimes,” said Mike Chen, co-founder and chief strategy officer for Made In Space. “It’s a paradigm shift and a democratizing technology. As soon as our first 3D printer is on the International Space Station later this year, there will be a new way of getting hardware to the space station that is faster and cheaper. For the first time, space will be open to anyone who knows how to use a 3D printer."

‘Out of this World’ Contest Details

All an attendee has to do is fill out a 'Space Ticket' with his or her idea of what they would want to 3D print in space, along with contact information, and drop it off at the Made In Space booth. Attendees don’t have to worry about the technical details – Made In Space can, and may need to, modify the idea or design later. Space Tickets can be found in registration packets or can be picked up at the Made In Space booth #55 on the Expo Floor.

Founded in 2010 with the goal of enabling in-space manufacturing, Made In Space is radically impacting how we will perform space missions in the future. Made In Space’s team members and advisors include successful entrepreneurs (Aaron Kemmer, Jason Dunn, Mike Chen, Jason Lam, Alison Lewis), experienced space experts (three-time astronaut Dan Barry and Mission Lead Mike Snyder) and key 3D printing experts (Scott Summit, Gonzalo Martinez). Made In Space has partnered with top 3D printing companies to leverage this technology for use in space. The company’s Unique Innovation Lab has done over 20,000+ hours of testing of various 3D printing technologies, off-the-shelf and custom-built printers, and dozens of printer components.

3D Printer World Expo Seattle, hosted by 3dprinterworld.com, brings together the largest range of 3D printers, technology and professionals ever assembled under one roof. The two-day 3D printing event, which includes exhibits, demonstrations, education tracks, contests and networking opportunities, takes place Aug. 22 and 23 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.
