3D Printing, or Rapid Prototyping, is revolutionizing the product design and development process. Saint Louis University Parks College professor and mechanical engineer, Sridhar Condoor, presents an overview of 3D printing technology, new developments in the field, and applications in product design and medical arenas. This presentation aims to help participants understand how to leverage 3D Printing technology.

A Kern Entreprenurial Engineering Network (KEEN) Fellow, Dr. Condoor helped to launch the Parks College Tinker Lab through the award of a KEEN grant to foster in engineering students a spirit of innovation to create personal, economic, and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work.

Rapid Prototyping is a Science in St. Louis Series partnership of the The Academy of Science – St. Louis, St. Louis County Libraries, the Photosynthetic Research Antenna Center (PARC), and Washington University’s Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement (under a St. Louis project grant). Science in St. Louis is based upon work supported as part of the Photosynthetic Antenna Research Center (PARC), an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences under Award Number DE-SC0001035. We also would like to thank the National Science Foundation for support awarded to Kaitlyn Faries through the Graduate Research Fellowship Program under Award Number DGE-1143954.
