Stratasys Ltd. announced it is co-sponsoring a coast-to-coast 3D printing road show based out of a recreational vehicle being called the “3DRV.” The 3DRV will tour the United States to explore how 3D printing and additive manufacturing are changing the way things are designed and manufactured, and  the possible implications for business and society at large.

The eight-month roadshow kicked off late-May in San Francisco and includes more than 100 planned stops and visits with companies, students and individuals across the country. As part of the tour, the 3DRV will be visiting Stratasys Headquarters in Minneapolis on Monday, June 30.

The journey will be documented through video, multimedia, and stories by TJ McCue, a 3D printing enthusiast, writer and owner of Refine Digital. Along the tour, people will be able to interact with the 3D printers to see how the technology can be applied in design, manufacturing and a variety of applications across industries.

 “Like the Internet in the 1990s and smartphones in the last decade, 3D printing technology is expected to become highly accessible, and it is likely poised to usher in a new world of design and manufacturing possibilities," said Gilad Gans, president of North America Operations for Stratasys.
