Venue: The Blue Room, Tobacco Factory, Raleigh Road, Southville, Bristol BS3 1TF
Dates: 9th December, 2009

The symposium brought together 27 key researchers in 3D print technology to discuss current progress of the 3 year AHRC funded large grant project 'The fabrication of 3-dimensional art and craft artefacts through virtual digital construction and output' The Project finished on the 31st December 2009.

Staff from the Centre for Fine Print research reported on their individual and collaborative research practice in 3D print. Independent artists Conor Wilson, Katie Davies and Nathalie Liege illustrated how collaboration with the CFPR 3D print lab had assisted in the development of their artistic practice.

Presentations from the symposium are accessible via the link below each speaker. Some of the presentations are large files as they contain images. Audio files of each talk are also available as MP3 files - each link will launch in a new window.
