The level of detail provided has been invaluable. This session was a veritable fountain of knowledge. By far the best/most useful presentation I have the chance to attend.
3D printing means using specialized software to create physical objects by accepting digital information. In this process, layers of material are added one upon the other until the shape of the object is formed. The object can be made using a number of printing materials, including plastics, powders, filaments, and paper.
3D printing usage gained momentum during the past decade, and its use in medical applications is growing at a rapid rate. Forensic medicine and pathology are two forensic science fields that have huge potential for this technology. Constant research is done to decipher the ways in which this technique can benefit forensic investigators. This technology can be used for several purposes, like weapon comparison, injury reconstruction, rebuilding dental evidence, teaching purposes, disaster victim identification, courtroom demonstrations, etc.
This webinar on "Use of 3D Printing in Humanitarian Forensics", will focus on the evolution of 3D printing in forensics, its uses and challenges, and the future prospects of this field.
