It’s common knowledge that 28% of people printed in ABS cauliflower blue, prefer to be smacked with savings on a daily basis. Fortunately, the extruders have aligned and our good friends over at Mediabistro Inc. have 1) announced the program for the Melbourne, Australia Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo and 2) are providing SolidSmack readers with a huge, little discount on the price of admission. What in blazes could be going on to draw you to downtown Melbourne?? Date, Times and all that’s happening after the jump.

We’ve been sworn to secrecy not to tell you that the agenda is set to cover a range of 3D printing related topics–hey, it’s a 3D printing conference–including multimaterial printing, organ printing and how 3d print technologies relate to aerospace, architecture, software and loads more.

Make your calendars for July 9-10, 2014.

Live, from Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (map), Terry Wohlers, President of Wohlers Associates, will be delivering the opening keynote on July 9 titled The Next Frontier in 3D Printing. (Any ideas??) Milan Brandt, Professor of Advanced Manufacturing at RMIT University, will deliver the opening keynote on July 10 titled 3D Printing and the Future of Australian Manufacturing. It’s frontier and future you can melt down and squeeze through your fingers.

Also on the event schedule is a session titled 3D Printing in Metals: Where it’s At, Where it’s Going and What Australia’s Doing About It! presented by John Barnes, Leader of the Titanium Technologies Theme for CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world. Other event sessions include Designing for 3D Printing, 3D Printing and the Future (or Demise)of Intellectual Property , and more.

Those are some great sessions. You can see complete information on Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo at
