1:30 PM ET: Networking Activity & Discussion Session: 3D Printing Metal with $600 Printers and Rapid Response Additive Manufacturing

Grab a cup of coffee or your lunch and spend 45 minutes with us! We know virtual events often lack networking time, so we've built in time each day for small group breakouts. During this session, we will be learning about about Somerset Community College's Rapid Response Additive Manufacturing Initiative (RRAMI) project, and how they are using $600 3D printers for additive manufacturing certification programs, 3D printing metal parts for welding, and preparing for emergency response manufacturing. Small group breakouts will discuss how your maker ecosystem can best prepare for future emergencies when rapid response is needed.

This session is sponsored by MatterHackers.
