Smith visited with Dr. Towell in July to learn more about HPU’s printer, which Dr. Towell uses as a teaching aid in his 3D Engineering Printing course. 3D printers create three-dimensional objects by printing successive layers of a variety of materials including plastic, metal, ceramic and glass. Scientists are currently studying the effects this technology will have on society.
