Speaker: Ralph Bagnall, Owner:

For about the cost of a good mid-sized sedan, a workshop can be outfitted with all the equipment Needed to make more than half the items in your home. Reasonably priced CNC mills, Plasma cutters Laser engravers and 3D printers are making it more possible and economical than ever to buy what you need made locally by someone you know.

This seminar will introduce attendees to the ideas and concepts of "Additive Manufacturing", "Distributive Manufacturing" and the return of locally made products. These ideas are poised to change nearly everything we know about building and distributing products, so learning about them now will help prevent surprises in the future.
