Learn with MIT Shop Manager, Chris Haynes as he walks through best practices for implementing 3D printing into a fabrication lab or makerspace.
Educators at universities, high schools, and colleges around the world are using the Form 2 to empower students and conduct research. Find out how to read a 3D printer specifications chart and the differences between 3D printing technologies so you can decide which 3D printer is right for your class or lab.
This lesson plan challenges how students think about everyday objects by distilling them first into planar projections. Students will experience a complete design cycle, from brainstorming and taking measurements, to CAD modeling, 3D printing, and analyzing their products.
The Dodecahedron lesson plan makes use of a 3D printed kit to introduce students to hands-on methods of translating three-dimensional objects into two-dimensional space, learning about Platonic solids, geometric ratios in nature and in design, and projective geometry along the way.
The activities in this lesson plan challenge students to harness their imaginative potential via enabling technologies within the 3D realm: scanning, modeling, modifying, and printing a new take on an existing object, person, or scene.
In this lesson plan, students learn about applicable fields for 3D scanning and get to try it for themselves, preparing equipment, setting up an autopilot route, and launching their own customized drone image capture mission.
This lesson plan pulls students into a communication-centric design and manufacturing mindset, as they brainstorm, define, model, and prototype their own inventions and develop an understanding of best practices used in communicating design information through engineering drawings.
Entrepreneurs and manufacturers alike can learn how to bring a product to market faster than ever before. In this webinar, we walk through the latest innovations in low- to mid-volume manufacturing and how you can provide new services for old clients.
Learn how to combine 3D printing and moldmaking processes to speed up prototyping, save money, and help bring products to market faster, from the basics of mold design and how they apply to 3D printed molds to real-world examples of prototype molding and 3D printed molds in production.
In this guide, we walk through the basics of three moldmaking techniques easily supplemented by 3D printing: injection molding, casting, and thermoforming.
With Clear Resin's refractive properties, you can use it to 3D print your own prism at home. Learn how to finish parts to optical transparency using sandpaper and a glossy clear coat.
