Theme of the seminar were the various printing technologies, the current technological change, the necessary software and a 3-D scan of your own body. Then, the students were able to experience the 3-D printers in the branch office and print their own body scan - they were doing a lifelike image of your self in a mini format. In very practical way, they got an insight into the art world of the future. +++
