2017 Study Abroad Blog
My first block of my study abroad was a 3D scanning and printing course. Having done 3D printing in the research laboratory I worked in back at UW I expected to know the basics of how 3D printing works and it's capabilities. However as the class went on it was clear that the 3D printing done at the Technical University of Berlin was very different from what I was used to.
Before coming to Berlin I had very little idea about what kind of city this is. Having been in Seattle and generally in the United States for all of my life, I assumed Berlin would be like any other metropolitan city I've been to, however as I discovered, Berlin has a unique personality of its own.
