3d Printing for kids Education


3D printing in curriculum. 3D printing is now for everybody. Kids love to do 3d printing.

Recent case study about STEM program can easily show us how much effect our schools curriculum has now a days.

STEM teachers told about,“I have students who don’t do any kind of work at all, but they’ll do 3D printing. It’s engaging enough that they actually want to complete assignments and show them off. They love it.”

“One of my students told me she now wants to be a biomedical engineer”.

Stratasys J750 3D Printer

————————————————————

 

The Stratasys J750 3D Printer introduces one-stop realism with full colors and multiple materials. The J750’s goal is simple: to put the “rapid” in rapid prototyping. Color comes naturally to the J750: neutrals and neons, shadows and highlights, textures and gradients — over 360,000 colors automatically mapped from your design software for photorealistic models. Users can […]

3D  Printing in Space: A Thermoplastic for Additive Manufacturing from Stratasys

—————————————————————————————————-

Equipment used in space encounters extreme environment, for example, large temperature changes in short periods of time, extreme radiations, and so on.  One problem encountered in space is rapid build-up of electrostatic charge.  To address such conditions, Stratasys Advanced Materials has developed ESD PEKK, a thermoplastic for additive manufacturing that has electrostatic dissipative (ESD) qualities.  The ESD properties combined with excellent mechanical and thermal properties makes ESD PEKK suitable for advanced electronics applications, for example, for use in space.

Super Bowl 50: Whiteclouds Providing 3D-printed brace for Panthers’ Linebacker Thomas Davis

Link Posted on Updated on

Panthers’ linebacker Thomas Davis injured his arm before the Super Bowl 50 game.  He had surgery to put metal plate and screws in his arm.  He said “I’ve got two weeks to heal up.  Come on, you know me. I ain’t missing the Super Bowl, you know that.”  However, he may get some help from a 3D printing company Whiteclouds.

Whiteclouds, a 3D printing company obtained a 3D scan of his arm and 3D printed arm brace for him.  The arm brace is made from a blend of plastic and rubber.  The arm brace was 3D printed in 30 hours using Stratasys Connex machines.  Whiteclouds is based in Ogden, Utah.

Investing in 3D Printing: 3D Printing Robotics and Technology Fund

——————————————————————————————

The first ever mutual fund focused on 3D printing and additive manufacturing was started in January 2014 and called 3D printing and Technology Fund.  In June 2015, the fund was renamed to 3D Printing Robotics and Technology Fund.  The fund is managed by 3D Printing Fund Advisers, LLC, with Alan M. Meckler as the Lead Portfolio Manager and John M. Meckler as Co-Portfolio Manager.  The fund can be bought online from  Schwab, Scottrade, Vanguard, or from the fund’s website http://www.3dpfund.com/.  The fund has Institutional Class shares (TDPIX) and Investor Class shares (TDPNX).  The top holdings of the fund include Stratasys, Autodesk, Dassault Systemes, Hewlett-Packard Co., General Electric Co., and so on.  Some of the larger companies such as General Electric Co. are included since they have been acquiring companies focused on 3D printing technology.

This is not an investment advice.  Before investing, please consult the prospectus of the fund.  Please visit the fund’s website (www.3dpfund.com) for further details.

3D Printing for Aircraft Components

————————————————

3D printing allows airlines to increase fuel efficiency by decreasing weights of parts at low cost.  Airbus has selected Stratasys technology to use 3D printing build parts for their aircrafts.  This technology was demonstrated at the Paris Air Show which was held in Paris, France from June 15th to June 21, 2015. 3D printing allows creation of parts with complex geometries used in aircrafts.  The technology is used for manufacturing interior components of aircrafts.
