Come hear Bill Steele, Founder of Polar 3D, talk about 3D printing’s current state, where it came from and where it’s heading. In this talk, he’ll also show us all how to design a 3D object and then print it live during the talk. In this talk, he will also cover their platform, known the “Polar Cloud,” where students can interact with other students and teachers from all over the world to collaborate on their designs and to build the knowledge required for their future. And knowing Bill, he’ll probably even show us a secret project or two he is currently working on.

Bio: Bill Steele, formerly of Microsoft as our local DE, founded Polar 3D in 2012 to develop a 3D printer specifically for the educational space. Bill’s unique Polar Coordinate based 3D printer design has won numerous industry awards and along with the supporting “Polar Cloud” platform (developed by he and his Co-Founder, Ed Estes,) is quickly becoming the defacto standard for 3D printing in the classroom.
