Scott Klososky | 3D Innovation: Changing the World One Piece at a Time

For all of the history of humanity to this point, we have not had the ability to deliver a physical item instantly over great distances. Now we can.  We have not had the ability to construct certain types of intricate parts and pieces. Now we can. We have not been able to rapidly scan a physical item and replicate it minutes later. Now we can. 3D printing and additive manufacturing are providing new options for innovating the construction of physical objects made ​of metal, plastics, glass or even organic matter. The implications of this burgeoning area of technology are staggering. Scott Klososky will paint the picture as to what is going in the world of 3D printing, and share his thoughts on how this is changing our lives.

Martin Short began his career on Canada’s “SCTV Comedy Network,” where his work garnered an Emmy Award. Short’s proven ability as a comedic chameleon and his host of hilarious impressions brought him to the attention of Saturday Night Live. With the tremendous exposure he gained on Saturday Night Live, he was on the Hollywood fast track and quickly crossed over into feature film work. Short made his big screen debut in Three Amigos, where he worked alongside former Saturday Night Live colleagues Chevy Chase and Steve Martin. Over the years he has continued to land plum comedic roles in theatrical releases such as Inner SpaceThree FugitivesClifford, Tim Burton’s Mars AttacksJungle 2 Jungle and The Big Picture, among others. Perhaps his most memorable role was that of the scene-stealing Franck, the wedding planner in Father of the Bride. He later reprised the hilarious portrayal for Father of the Bride II.
