Data @ Your Desk Virtual Workshop: Using 3D Printing for Data Analysis

3D printing allows for the creation of tactile objects from digital files. This process is often used for additive manufacturing processes, but can also be used for the creation of physical objects from any data. An experimental method of data visualization sometimes called “data physicalization” plays with the idea that presenting datasets in 3D-printed “visualizations,” capable of physical manipulation, allows for additional insights due to a new way of interacting with the data. This session will expose participants to some concepts that may allow for investigating their data in new ways, give several examples of ways of physicalizing data, and discuss some potential pitfalls.
