02 Nov DMI AND FORSYTH CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL ANNOUNCE THE GRAND OPENING OF A 3D PRINTER DEMONSTRATION FACILITY IN THE SCHOOL’S STEM DEPT.
David Johnson, the engineering teacher at the schools STEM Academy loves the addition to his classroom. “The ProJet 460plus is an amazing technology that allows the kids to produce three-dimensional color prototypes of their designs. So instead of just being able to design it in the computer and look at a two-dimension technical drawing…they’re actually able to prototype working models.” Johnson said.
3D printers are quickly becoming a necessity in classrooms from elementary schools to medical schools. The ability to manufacture parts, models and prototypes on demand is not only a great enhancement to CAD software training, but it can simplify complex concepts in just about any educational curriculum.
