Community Playdate: "Design for Additive Manufacturing" by Chris Williams

Friday, September 12, 2014
Location & Time: 

Moss Arts Center - Sandbox (8:30-9:30am)

Join us as we hear from Dr. Chris Williams (Associate Professor in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Education, Director of the DREAMS Lab, and ICAT Senior Fellow) about his research on additive manufacturing (aka "3d printing"). In the realm of additive manufacturing, Chris’s expertise is focused in both process improvements and in creating a suite of design tools to guide the use of additive manufacturing to create functional, end-use artifacts (i.e., “Design for Additive Manufacturing”).

"Community Playdates" are open discussions of topics and ideas from ICAT, Virginia Tech, and the community. We welcome any interested students, faculty, and community members to join these discussions, and enjoy coffee/pastries from the Next Door Bake Shop!
