Physical Prototyping at UBC and Open Robotics Demo

Speaker: Jon Nakane

Description:

Prototyping tools are available on campus for students looking to fabricate their ideas into physical objects. On display will be physical prototypes from UBC Engineering Physics and other local groups making use of waterjet cutters, 3d printers, laser cutters and other tools to put together physical prototypes for academic courses, capstone projects and extracurricular teams.
