Discover the numerous ways 3D printing is positively impacting industries from fashion to health care in an innovative and interactive program tonight at The Cowles Center. 

Four world leaders in 3D printing technology will be available to teach you about business applications, manufacturing, entertainment, art, architecture, and fashion using 3D printing at this year’s Spark! Annual Celebration of Innovation hosted by the Sabes Jewish Community Center.

Award-winning architect and 3D printing fashion designer Julia Koerner, whose pieces are exhibited in museums around the world, will be available to demonstrate some of the capabilities of 3D printing. Koerner will reveal a few of her latest creations for the first time in a runway-style show—Minnesota’s first 3D printed fashion show.

You’ll want to put your thinking cap on as you learn how this cutting-edge technology is not only making it possible to create fashion, but also to create cars, food, human organs, personalized prosthetics and various other items. If that isn’t mind boggling, Robert Sukhudyan, president of My3DNA, will discuss how his company is using 3D print scanners to scan people’s bodies to create a 3D replication, better known as a figurine—3D selfies, anyone?

Come for the VIP reception at 5 p.m., which includes a pre-party at Mason’s Barre and a chance to network with professionals, or just come for the event. VIP tickets cost $250 and include premiere seating, and event only tickets cost $36. For more information visit Sabes JCC.
