From the good folks at Mediabistro…

Mediabistro’s Inside 3D Printing Conference will address 3D printed firearms and more as it continues its world tour in Chicago this July 10-11.

Rep. Bill Foster of the 11th Congressional District of Illinois will deliver a keynote presentation at the conference to discuss digital manufacturing’s connection to policy, education, and jobs.

Michael Guslick of will also host the session, Additive Manufacturing Meets Hobbyist Gunsmithing, and speak about experiments with gunsmithing applications of 3D printing, the latest work done by others in the field, and the legal issues inherent with such pursuits.

The event will also tackle 3D printing’s impact on food, fashion, art, architecture, design, engineering, and more.
