2 thoughts on “Early 3D Printing

  1. Once upon a time many many years ago (late 90s I think), on a trip to the RSNA (Radiological Society of North America) meeting in Chicago, one of the vendors there was one doing 3D prints using lasers and powdered resin. They were trying to promote their printers for creating 3D models from CT images for surgical purposes. Among the “freebie” items they were giving away at their booth were 3D prints of similar mathematical objects. Was pretty cool stuff.

  2. Like a lot of techie people who are yet uninitiated into 3D printing, I think there’s a perception that this stuff sprang up only in the last decade or so. Always good to have faulty notions like that blown away. 🙂
