Yesterday, I was in Annapolis in the Senate Lounge with RMI Board members, Senator Kathy Klausmeier, Senator Alan Kittleman and Professor Jan Baum Director of the Object Lab. Jan scanned the heads of Senate President Mike Miller and Senators Norman Stone, Klausmeier and Kittleman. The scans will be printed out on a 3d printer at the Object Lab to produce a 2.5 inch, 3D manufactured “head shot” or bust. We will be use these to promote an RMI event in Annapolis scheduled from 9:00 am-4:00 pm on Feb 7th in the East Room, Miller Senate Office Building. It is free and open to the public. The purpose is to promote a more positive image of manufacturing and introduce legislators to rapid technologies like 3D imaging, design and printing. These technologies are vital to manufacturing competitiveness and they represent a positive image of our industry. All legislators are invited to stop by, get scanned, learn This is an opportinity for legislators to learn more about advanced manufacturing and manufactuers in their district. Their scanned images will be printed and sent back to legislators. A special thanks to Senators Mike Miller and Kathy Klausmeier for making this possible.
