Print Your Own Invention

In a recent interview done with Scott Simpson of The Vancouver Sun, Dr. Leo Stocco talks about the advantages of stereolithography: a 3-D printing technology that can produce prototypes of design and parts. Students working with the 3-D technology can quickly see their designs come off the page and into three-dimensional reality. "It just allows you to do really cool, creative things. It's five bucks worth of material. They screw it up, no big deal. I let them print a second one,” said Leo to the Sun.
