3D PRINTING THE FUTURE
1st Edition, Cluj-Napoca
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
9-23 June 2017
Hosted by The National History Museum of Transylvania
Started as a collaboration between Scientifica and Science Museum Group, in particular Science Museum of London.
The first stage of the project provided an in-depth research and mapping of the local market, a research meant to identify and promote local initiatives that use the 3d printing technology.
In this process we have identified 11 areas for application of the 3d printing technology in Romania and started the collaboration with over 35 partners in order to create a representative image of how 3d printing is being used in Romania. In collaboration with Science Museum of London we have sucessfuly reproduced main 3d printed works from the NASA Research Centre and from main medical research centres in USA.
Following the growing succes of these collaboration, Cluj Cultural Center together with the European Comission, DG Connect, Gluon and Speedwell joined the making of the exhibition. This newly formed partnership allowed for new international work to be presented to the public.
