LEO's story includes a number of 3D printed objects forming the basis of the narrative and offering an opportunity for readers to download and print the objects. Carla will share the process and motivations behind the project, as well as what happens when you unleash new visions out into the world and allow people to download and remix them at will.

In this webcast you will see:

  • Stories and objects that explore the ways that 3D printing will affect everyday life in the near future
  • The design process for brainstorming and concepting new products
  • Tips and tricks for modeling 3D printable objects
