Between 18-21 october, I was participating in a conference about Education and Heritage, Tourism and Communities that was held in Viseu, at the Grão Vasco Museum. I was invited to talk in a roundtable about technologies, opportunities and ideas in the heritage field.

During the same event, we (me and my good friends of Ponto Z company) also organized two training workshops and an exhibition about 3D printing and heritage. Lot of work, before and during, but also lots of fun :)
