Ibrahim Ozbolat, assistant professor of mechanical and industrial engineering and co-director of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Group, a unit of the
Ozbolat will highlight the application areas with special emphasis on medicine, particularly 3D printing of living tissues and organs. During the talk, various sample parts will be introduced and a demo of 3D printing will be provided to the audience.
3D Printing, the third industrial revolution, is a powerful technique to build objects layer by layer. Due to its ability to manufacture complex objects using wide variety of materials, 3D printing has been used in several areas including space missions, food industry, consumer products, design and architecture, medicine, and automotive and defense industry.
