Fireside Bytes, Episode 1
The Rise of 3D Printing, with Satish Chandar
IITAA event calendar had a fantastic start to the year with the inaugural edition of ‘Fireside Bytes’ – a series of ‘theme-based’ networking events and workshops.
Nearly 30 IITians and family members got together at Dhakshin restaurant in Crows Nest on March 12, 2015, to participate in what was an exciting and stimulating discussion – not to mention the most delicious South Indian snacks degustation menu that was on offer. :)
What was it all about?
The session for the ‘first episode’ was led by Satish Chandar and tackled a super-interesting and relevant topic around 3D Printing. In particular, the focus was to discuss the benefits of 3D printers, demonstrate some real-life use-cases and share ideas on how we could get the best out of them.
Satish was supported by Howard Wood from 3D Printing Studio, one of the most prominent advocates of 3D printing and host of a popular TedX event in Sydney.
Satish and Howard covered off:
We had a real-life personal 3D printer and a number of actual ‘printed’ objects made out of different materials and printer types on display.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening session with a few interesting sparks of brilliance and light-hearted fun bytes:
All in all, a great evening well-spent learning about 3D printing and hanging out with IIT mates!
