Presentation Summary:

In his upcoming talk, Michael Giannattasio will be covering what the additive manufacturing techniques mean to the new inventor/entrepreneur. We now are becoming aware of what 3D printing is and how to make something from our own desk but, what are we really making? How can we turn these new tools into something productive and meaningful? He will present his perspective on how this newly accessible technology is impacting and will hopefully empower future designers and inventors. He will also touch on what SALT Makerspace is and what it can offer to the CNY community.
