New Frontiers in 3D Printing

Food, Infrastructure, and High-Speed Manufacturing

3D printing, usually associated with small items and models, is growing up. The technology can now produce items up to industrial strength, larger than life size, and even food. Innovative startups are using 3D printing to address major shortages across multiple industries in raw materials, trained manpower and natural resources, and creating stronger, cheaper, more sustainable products.

The event featured an exclusive first look at a video presentation from Nuseir Yassin (“Nas Daily”) about Plantish, the 3D Printing startup revolutionizing food.

Join OurCrowd as we sit down with CEOs, investors and customers to discuss the impact of the transformational technology of 3D printing in very different markets.
