Inside/Outside is a two day technical symposium that brings together two lenses for leveraging professional desktop 3D printing for professionals. Inside, focuses on medical uses and how to communicate and prototype around the very small. Outside, focuses on built environments, working with scales greater than 1:1, and uses that extend architectural models to communicate and develop ideas with the aid of desktop printers.

Each day includes a keynote talk from an emerging technology expert, industry and faculty presentations, and interactive workshops on scanning, print preparation, and applied case studies. Full conference schedule and speaker list coming soon.

We will also be hosting an opening reception on Wednesday August 7th , 6:30-8:30pm for a chance to hear from our speakers and network with other attendees.

Thursday Keynote:

Amy Alexander

Amy is the Senior Biomedical Engineer in the Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology’s Anatomic Modeling Lab in Rochester, Minn. In her role, she uses advanced medical software to convert 2D radiological imaging data into 3D printed models. Her main focus is working directly with surgical teams to digitally plan a patient’s boney reconstructive surgery, and then design and print surgical cutting guides precisely aligned to that individual’s case.

Friday Keynote: 

Melodie Yashar

Melodie Yashar is a design architect, researcher and co-founder of Space Exploration Architecture (SEArch+), a group building upon a 10-year portfolio of academic space research and practice developing human-supporting concepts for space exploration. In 2015 SEArch+ was awarded the top prize in NASA’s Centennial Challenge for a 3D-Printed Habitat for the proposal "Mars Ice House."

Full Schedule

On Wednesday, August 7, there will be an opening reception from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. This will allow presenters and attendees from both days to connect, learn more about the symposium talks and workshops, and enjoy some light refreshments.
