Can’t Find What You’re Looking For? Make It Yourself With 3D Printing
The 3D printing revolution is here and has the potential to turn each of us into designers and innovators rather than just being consumers of standardized, off the shelf products. Join LIL 3D Printing/Memorables for an interactive presentation and discussion on the evolution of 3D printing and photogrammetry as it moves beyond prototyping and niche manufacturing.
You will learn the evolution of 3D Printing technology and its use and highlight the revolution it is creating by unlocking the world’s creative potential.
Learn how 3D printing companies are:
- Promoting design democracy by empowering users to identify and create solutions to address their specific needs or desires, outside of the standard box.
- Combining 3D imaging and printing to improve product quality, reduce production times and create personalized custom products.
- Enabling entrepreneurship among artists, designers, architects, engineers and craftsman.
Mark Sherman, owner, LIL 3D Printing is an independent 3D printer located in Milton.

Michelle Hawco, owner, Memorables Inc., uses photogrammetry to produce 3D images of people and pets; which can be printed as keepsakes, used to produce custom fitted prototypes, assess body shape and extract measurements, or produce digital assets for animation and video games.
Every month the Innovation Centre hosts informal, and free, presentation on a topic of interest to the residents, members and friends of the Centre and the Milton business community. It is being held at the same time as the monthly Silicon Halton Day where Silicon Halton members come to cowork as our guests for the day. It’s an open-drop in session, and all Milton entrepreneurs are welcome to attend. You bring your lunch, we’ll bring dessert.
