A 3D printer in action.
As part of Madison County’s efforts to highlight the rapid development of county-based companies in the technology sector, the Grants Committee has arranged for a 3D printing demonstration for members of the Madison County Board, elected officials and department heads.
The 3D printing demonstration will be conducted by Scott Rocca, a principal owner of Griffin 3D, an Edwardsville-based 3D printing company.
The Grants Committee meeting will be at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9, in the Probation Department Conference Room, on the third floor of the Administration Building, immediately adjacent to the Madison County Board Chambers.
The meeting is open to the public.
3D printing involves making three-dimensional objects from digital models by applying layers of quick-drying material on top of one another.
