SXSW 2018

Exploring new frontiers in digital fabrication

We have entered an age of exponential manufacturing. Traditional fabrication processes have recently been disrupted by advances in automation techniques, exploding capabilities in computer power and novel material technologies. 3D printing has created unprecedented opportunities. But what is next? Intelligent and self-assembling materials are paving the way for tomorrow’s applications in smart production processes, large-scale printed complex architecture, and industrial fabrication techniques.
