A local company, Dulaney Drafting and Design, will return to Rock Valley College to describe how to get started with 3D Printing. Russ Delaney, of Dulaney, Drafting and Design, has spent most of his life in the printing industry and owns and operates a 3D prototype company.
This event is free and open to the public and will take place Wednesday, April 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Student Center Atrium on RVC’s main campus (3301 North Mulford Rd.). Seating is limited so an RSVP is required. You can RSVP at myrvc.org/3d.
3D Printing is touching all aspects of life. Healthcare uses 3D printers to create prosthetics, 3D printers are being used to build bridges and houses, home owners are using 3D printers to replace broken items around the house, and chefs are now using 3D printers in high end restaurants.
This event is sponsored by Rock Valley College Computers & Information Systems (CIS) monthly meet-up “HackNights.” CIS teaches courses in iOS Development, photography, web design, and networking. Chuck Konkol, RVC CIS faculty, utilizes 3D printing in his iOS Mobile App Courses (CIS-280) and iOS BootCamp (CIS-290).
