Upcoming Events

iPads Revisited: 3D Scanning/Printing Demo

MIDEA, the Marcus Institute for Digital Education and the Arts in collaboration with ATX Hackerspace

date: Thursday, December 6th, 2012
time: 1:45PM - 3:45PM

AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center
1900 University Avenue, Austin TX 78705

The event focuses on current iPad initiatives in museums, while also exploring new applications. This afternoon session will be about the use of 3D scanning/printing in the museum where we'll be teaching people hands-on how to use their iPads with 123D Catch to scan their museums.

Many in attendance have probably not yet experienced a 3D printer in action! Having one onsite to see and smell would really solidify the concept for the attendees and will help them brainstorm the place of this technology in their museums and public programs.
