3D Printing the Future - The Exhibition will take visitors on an in-depth look at how the process of 3D printing actually works, how it is used and how it affects our daily lives. From fashion to décor, entertainment to toys, medical devices to possible human organs, 3D Printing the Future - The Exhibition illustrates 3D printing's boundless and mind-blowing potential to re-shape how we live, work and play.
3D Printing the Future will offer an inspiring glimpse of the future through 3D-printed objects, live demonstrations, and hands-on 3D printing, along with the amazing possibilities for the future. Visitors will watch 3D printers in action as they take an immersive journey through all applications of 3D printing, including:
Guests will learn how 3D printing is revolutionizing the world of modern medicine and be able to view a variety of 3D-printed medical objects, including prosthetics and a knee, provided by the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) at USF.
3D Science & Technology
Visitors can explore how 3D printing is helping scientists and researchers working in some of the most remote places on Earth. Guests will also learn how 3D printing is being used to help solve crimes, build cars and houses, along with sending replacement tools to astronauts in space.
The exhibition's guest curator, AIST will act as primary content provider for this section where guests can see how this futuristic technology is being used to preserve our past. AIST will illustrate how ancient sites and artifacts are brought to life in surprising detail and show how scientists are using 3D printing and scanning to advance our understanding of ancient people, places and animals.
In 3D Fun, visitors will discover everything from 3D-printed musical instruments and toys to 3D-printed fashion and jewelry. This section will illustrate the modern conveniences that 3D printing can provide in the future, like printing a replacement part for a dishwasher or an extra place setting at the dining table for unexpected company. Additionally, this section shows how the fashion industry has embraced 3D printing as a tool to create beautifully innovative and customized items including clothing, jewelry and accessories that are perfectly tailored.
Because 3D printing is a hands-on world, visitors will have the opportunity to play with 3D printing concepts in this hands-on workshop. Guests will be able to draw with the world’s first 3D printing pen, and families can even take part in an interactive story featuring 3D-printed models. This fun, imaginative story time will offer a glimpse of new ways to tap into the imagination of children through tangible story-themed play that they can design and print out.
3D Live Showcase
This live stage show will feature a variety of fun and fascinating demonstrations, including interactive scanning, and step-by-step walk-throughs of the 3D printing process. This show celebrates the fruits of creativity and the “maker movement” using 3D printing.
Risks and challenges
While raising the funds for the exhibition is our biggest hurdle, we are aware that there are other challenges that may present themselves. There is always the possibility of a delay in product shipping or the printing of artifacts. Another challenge will be to transform our exhibit space into the perfect environment for 3D Printing the Future - The Exhibition. Walls will be painted, display cases purchased and assembled, and multimedia displays created. With your help, we are confident that we can create this new and exciting exhibit space for you, our guests!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
