Click Here for Meeting Details


Desktop Metal offers a complete system that can be run in an office environment.  Desktop Metal machines have the ability to print in a broad range of alloys - including steel, aluminum, titanium and copper, the core technology "microwave enhanced sintering.

Desktop Metal has already earned a number of fans with its 3D printed metal technology — Lowe's, Caterpillar and BMW were all among its earliest clients. Tthe Massachusetts-based startup also raised $115 million of venture funds in July.

"You don't need tooling. You can make short runs of production with basically no tooling costs. You can change your design and iterate very fast. And now you can make shapes you couldn't make any other way, so now you can lightweight a part and work with alloys that are very, very hard, with very extreme properties." - Desktop Metal CEO Ric Fulop

Come see and hear what this 3D printing technology is all about with PADT as our presenter and enjoy complimentary food and beverages.  We will also have mini tours of the Engineering School's Innovation Floor.

Join us at our new Tech Talk location,  the Innovation Floor at Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science (RSECS) at the University of Denver, brand new October 2016.

Entrance: On Wesley Ave near York St. Can also enter on the Iliff Ave side. Look for signs pointing to the Innovation Floor.

Parking: There is street parking around the Ritchie School on Iliff. Also check Wesley, York, Gaylord and Harvard. Your registration for this event will help us possibly obtain free parking for future events.
