April 2018 Presentations:

Main Presentation

Main Presentation was by Aaron Hartman, Chief Executive Maker showed us all about the latest and greatest happenings in the 3D printing world.
Aaron is an approachable, heart-felt, passionate and dedicated maker who spends all his mindspace on 3D design, engineering challenges, robotic competitions and innovative 3D printing techniques. Call him a geek or better yet, call him to help solve a product development conundrum. Raised in a family of teachers, he’s an excellent trainer and instructor enriching others with new skills, knowledge and understanding to be a better maker.
After dedicating two decades of learning robotics and 3D modeling, in 2014, Aaron founded Bits to Pieces and Steel City 3D Printing. As an engineer and product developer, design and innovation has become second nature. Over the last few years, a number of engineering firms, architects, schools and libraries have relied on Aaron for his expertise, training and 3D printing of 3D models or prototypes.
In 2017, Aaron Hartman pursued his vision to create a neighborhood makerspace offering easy access for creative minds to a maker community with learning expertise. For Aaron, it’s a “fitness club” for the innovative mind and budding inventor. Creation Labs also offers “napkin to product” 3D printing services and printers for engineers, product development and architectural firms.
