MakerBot Stories | SUNY New Paltz Innovation Center

The State University of New York at New Paltz is home to the world’s first MakerBot Innovation Center: a ground-floor room with 30 MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers. “3D printing is training students to think in a different way,” says Dan Freedman, dean of science and engineering at New Paltz. “If students come out of here knowing about 3D printing and different applications of it, it will give them a better chance of starting a career.”  

MakerBot Stories | Brookhaven Memorial Hospital

Steven Jaworski, a biomedical technician, had to replace so many cables that monitor patients’ vital signs that he ordered cable tethers from a medical supplier for $24.50 per cable, or $73.50 for a set of three. But surgical scissors cut through these tethers easily.   Then Jaworski appealed to the Brookhaven administration that a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer could help solve his cable problem. He designed a tamper proof cable tether. Between the dense black PLA and thick wire, it costs $7.94. It holds all three cables, and surgical scissors can’t cut through it.  

MakerBot Stories | A. MacArthur Barr Middle School

Vinny Garrison is the technology teacher and racing commissioner at A. MacArthur Barr Middle School, in Nanuet, NY. Over the course of seven weeks, each eighth grader will shape a footlong wood block into a car and make a set of wheels on a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer. Students eager to challenge the all-time record craft wheels weighing as little as eight-tenths of a gram. (Stock wheels can weigh as much as five grams each.) Others create elaborate patterns worthy of a custom rim shop while learning engineering principles.  

MakerBot Stories | Whitby School

Leslie Perry at Whitby School in Greenwich, CT uses MakerBot® Replicator® Desktop 3D Printers in the school’s Design Technology classroom to spark an interest in 3D printing and design and teach problem solving. In this project, students learned 3D design to create their own boats and buildings for a fictional place called Whitby Harbor, and then brought their ideas to life.

MakerBot Stories | Feinstein Institute for Medical Research

What if doctors could grow you a new windpipe from your own cartilage cells? A team of surgeons and scientists at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research has grown cartilage on a scaffolding made from ordinary MakerBot PLA Filament.   MakerBot provided the Feinstein Institute with a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer, which has two extruders. Lead researcher Todd Goldstein converted it into a low-cost bioprinter by replacing one extruder with a syringe that dispenses the chondrocyte-collagen “bio-ink.”

Makerbot Stories | Pratt Institute School of Architecture

For a course at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture, Leland Jobson and Andrew Reitz designed an artificial iceberg that is also a floating resort. They used a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer to make a model of vaulted chambers of ice. “The way me and Andrew were able to be more confident in pursuing this project was having a way to build it,” said Jobson.   The MakerBot Replicator in the school’s Digital Futures office also helped them to develop the concept. 3D printed study models, they said, help them see their ideas more objectively than on a computer…
