About this workshop

Learn to scan, augment and print any object - even yourself! You will learn to 3D scan an object, augment that to create a design, and print it to create your idea. You’ll practice by scanning, augmenting and 3D printing a mini-you to take home. Get tips and tricks from Gerardo Hernandez, a JPL engineer who's been 3D printing for more than 4 years.

Why 3D printing? Need to prototype for your next build? You can print that. Need a new coffee mug? You can print that. How about an iPhone car holder? Yup. Current available technology means, in a matter of minutes, you scan anything and recreate it through 3D printing.
