Are you ready to be inspired and have some fun? Our 2015 Keynote Speaker, Devon Harris, was an original member of the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team and captain of the 1992 and 1998 teams. Remember the Disney movie, Cool Runnings?

30 Years of 3D Printing and Beyond… Yes, it’s been 30 years! (Jasmine/Magnolia)
Like many technologies that seem to loom in the background for years, 3D printing has skyrocketed to prominence over the last several years. Although the technology has been around since 1984, its evolution has allowed it to expand into manufacturing, construction, bio-medical and so much more.
John Beihler, author, blogger, photographer, technologist and 3D enthusiast will take us on a journey into the history and world of 3D technology.
Going beyond simply using the technology for making prototype parts, John will share real-world examples of how this technology has changed our lives and will continue to do so for a long time.
