Presentation at Ars Mathmatica in Paris

Recently Mark Ganter from University of Washington and Laura West from Fresno City College gave a presentation titled why collaboration matters at Ars Mathematica in Paris France.  We discussed the research we started before beginning to work together and more importantly the results of our collaboration.  Since beginning our work together, we have come up with an effective metal casting formula for 3D printing, several materials that print straight out of the bag and a material that casts both metal and glass (watch for upcoming post by Charlie Wyman) well straight out of the bag.  If you would like to see the powerpoint slide show of our presentation head to the post on Open3dp.
