Decades after its invention, by now it is clear that 3D Printing is a manufacturing technology that can change and revolutionize the way we can make almost anything. Experts estimate that it will be a key technology in this century, enabling industrial developments that were impossible before. In fact, many products in our daily life are already prototyped or manufactured using 3D Printing. Given its expected future role, it is critical to examine how it can affect our environment, shape our society and change individual lives.
Curator Marta Malé-Alemany and Materialise come together to present MAKING A DIFFERENCE / A DIFFERENCE IN MAKING, an exhibition that looks at 3D Printing with both the eyes of fascination -inviting viewers to discover a production process that allows us to make things differently- and through a deeper observation, to ponder how it can help individuals, enable social changes and positively contribute to the environment. In other words, how 3D Printing is making a difference.
