Building Bodies in the Classroom: 3D Printers and a Comparative Anatomy Class

3D printing is the process of taking a digital model and making it a physical object. This session will review the broader implications of 3D printing technology as well as offer examples of how it is currently being used at John Carroll. The session will include a live demo by Jay Tarby of the MakerBot Replicator that is available for use in the Center for Digital Media. Chris Sheil, Ph.D., will describe how 3D printing has enhanced learning in his Anatomy course, allowing students to replicate rare and unavailable skeletons and bodies for classroom use. Please join us Wednesday, April 5, at 1 p.m. in Grasselli Library, Room 202 (the LoPresti Room) for this event. Lunch will be served. RSVP to Pat Hoffman (phoffman@jcu.edu) if you plan to join us.
