Speakers: Chris Anderson, CEO, 3D Robotics Carl Bass, President and CEO, Autodesk, Inc Thanks to 3D printers and other increasingly cheap and easy digital desktop fabrication machines, the Web generation is now turning making physical things on a global scale. This is more than just tinkering and DIY; it’s also spawning a new sort of manufacturing entrepreneurship, powered by crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and the spread of Makerspaces like TechShop. How will this revolution impact traditional manufacturing and supply chain processes—and how soon? How will it transform engineering? Where are the biggest opportunities for innovation and economic growth on the near horizon? What are the challenges? Don’t miss this provocative and inspiring discussion between Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics and author of the new book, Makers: The New Industrial Revolution, and Carl Bass, CEO of Autodesk, a leading 3D design software company.
