Industrial Revolution 3.0 & Future of 3D Printing

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Sunday 10th March, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

What is the future of manufacturing, design, and creativity? How are 3D printing and the maker movement shifting the global economy?

Mike Senese, Senior Editor at Wired, and Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO and Co-Founder of 3D printing marketplace Shapeways, will discuss how 3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing and democratizing creation for everyone.

Sharing their perspectives from the front lines, Mike and Peter will outline the key trends of Industrial Revolution 3.0: collaborative design, open access, creative commerce, green production, and a DIY ethos. They will discuss the limitations of mass manufacturing and explain why digital fabrication enables individuals to find and make products that truly meet their unique needs.

What open source did for software, 3D printing can do for physical things. Turning bits into atoms has never been easier.
