ATTENDEES of the Muckadilla TopCrop Field Day next Friday will witness farm parts created with 3D printers.
The event, held at Maree Downs, Amby on March 16, will see Toowoomba based Jaye Hill showcase 3D printing equipment and provide an overview of the considerations for anyone looking to invest in on-farm 3D printing.
Powertec Telecommunications IoT Solutions Engineer James McCarthy will also be presenting farm ready telecommunications.
ConnectAg event facilitator Rhonda Toms-Morgan said there were lots of amazing technologies that were farm ready but without connectivity on farm were simply irrelevant.
“We are planning on having farm parts printed (with 3D printers) during the day and put them to use with the support of Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and University of Southern Queensland,” she said.
“We aim to help agricultural businesses in the Maranoa better determine what options would suit their needs and how to go about making it happen with insight from companies doing it on farms across Australia, such as Powertec.”
The Muckadilla TopCrop Field Day starts at 7:30am with breakfast at Maree Downs on the Warrego Highway, 53km west of Roma.
