Autodesk technology futurist Dr. Jordan Brandt to discuss "Educating the Generative Generation" on Friday, Jan. 30; 3D Systems-Gentle Giant's Louie Tucci to discuss "From Screen to Print: The Physical Birth of Digital Art" on Saturday, Jan. 31.

Already revolutionizing industry, arts, entertainment and education, 3D printing is the technology of today and the future. Keynote sessions will touch on both at 3D Printer World Burbank, which commences Jan. 29-31. 

Keynote Address: "Educating the Generative Generation"

New generative design and additive manufacturing technologies are accelerating the convergence of traditional disciplines. Engineers and architects of the future will speak a common computational vocabulary, with the skills to coax millions of design iterations from artificially intelligent machines on the path to optimal solutions. Likewise, the education of our next gen(erative) designers will shift away from explicitly drawing ideas to framing the problem and learning how to ask the right questions.

Take an inside look at how 3D Systems and Gentle Giant Ltd. are helping digital artists push the boundaries of art and design. The historical divide between traditional and digital art is under constant scrutiny as technology blurs the line between the virtual and real. Will the USB stick of today be the Monet of tomorrow? See how 3D Systems is working to solve real-world problems while helping to birth a new age of digital art.

Attendees at the 3D printing industry's main event also will have front-row seats for an epic battle between 16 leading entertainment and gaming industry artists as they square off head-to-head in a LIVE Sculpt-Off on Friday, January 30. Other attractions include multiple 3D scanning and printing demonstrations, SeeMeCNC's 16-foot-tall Deltabot called "The PartDaddy," a 3D printed unmanned aerial vehicle (UVA), 3D printed guitars, lamps and shoes, and a 3D print art gallery featuring renowned artists Joshua Harker, Gil Bruvel and Academy Award winner Kevin Mack.
