September 14, 2015: 3D Printing for Humans: Medical, Food and Space Applications, presented by Scott Summit

We are pleased to welcome Scott Summit to present: “3D Printing for Humans: Medical, Food and Space Applications.”

Newly available 3D printing tools mean that many of the methods we’ve used to improve human lives through development of prosthetics, casts, exoskeletons and more can be completely reconsidered.

These new technologies lend themselves not only to new approaches to problem solving, but also to new business models that allow the integration of design, medicine and technology. As a result of this, more meaningful and individualized solutions are being created.

Summit will explore applications where combinations of 3D printing and 3D scanning are applied, such as limb loss, scoliosis and exo-skeletal robotics. Next-generation applications, such as 3D printing in space, and the printing of food will also be discussed.

Scott Summit, Senior Director of Design at 3D Systems, which acquired the company he founded, Bespoke Innovations, in 2012, is a 3-time TEDx speaker. Summit’s designs have won international recognition and his clients have included Apple and Nike. Summit’s designs can be seen at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in NYC, where 10 products will be shown until May 2015.

The meeting will be on Monday, September 14th, 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.

This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Clear Capital, and TEKSystems.
