Last week Public Knowledge hosted the second 3D/DC event on Capitol Hill. More than 20 representatives from the 3D printing community came to Capitol Hill to showcase the innovation taking place in their field.
Members of Congress, staffers, enthusiasts and people walking by the Rayburn House Office Building came in to see 3D printing in action. Some of them for the first time. There were so many printers and exhibitors there that it was easy for every participant to find something they were intersted in. This event showed that 3D printing wasn’t just about making toys out of Lego plastic. This event showed people how bright the future of printing could be. Printing is becomming an educational tool and soemthing that other fields are starting to take advantage of. Allowing the participants to see the scale and scope of 3D printing.
3D/DC showed that the future of 3D printing is now. More importantly, in the midst of 3D printing patent drama and the conversation of undetectable 3D printed guns, it was refreshing to see all of the good things people are doing with this revolutionary technology.
