3D printing allows manufacturers to create inexpensive molds for low volume manufacturing. Learn how 3D printed molds can be used to vacuum form parts in a variety of materials.
Silicone molding is a great way to create objects with materials not supported by your 3D printer such as flexible, or rubber-like materials. Learn how to 3D print ridgid molds to cast flexible materials into.
Silicone molding is a great way to recreate many of an object, or create an object in materials not supported by your 3D printer. Learn some of the best practices associate with creating molds around 3D printed parts.
Learn how to configure your MakerBot Labs Experimental Extruder and change between the four included nozzles.
Join MakerBot VP of Professional Services Jordan Brehove as he discusses MakerBot Innovation Centers. A MakerBot Innovation Center is a centralized, scalable 3D printing solution composed of MakerBot Replicator 3D printers, software, supplies, and services.
SUNY New Paltz has a new mechanical engineering major and a certificate in design and digital fabrication. Students help area entrepreneurs bring their inventions to market. And New Paltz won a $10 million SUNY 2020 challenge grant. What will a MakerBot Innovation Center do for your institution?
The A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland uses an “ecosystem of making” — with two labs and a startup incubator — to teach the engineering students of today. What can a MakerBot Innovation Center do for your institution?
Montclair students learn 3D printing and 3D design from elementary school all the way through high school. This paradigm in STEM learning is possible with amazing teachers, administrators and the help of MakerBot content, community and support.
You won’t believe what the Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center created for NASA with their MakerBot® Desktop 3D Printers. The James Webb Telescope will be NASA’s biggest science mission to date, the largest telescope ever launched, and the first to carry a camera optimized for viewing infrared light, the NIRCam. Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC) is tasked with building it. That doesn’t intimidate ATC engineer Alison Nordt, who believes that the James Webb Telescope’s pictures of deep space “will change our understanding of the universe and be much more spectacular than anything we’ve ever seen before.” To…
A class of Browning eighth-graders, who designed their own Lego-style pieces, learns how to print them on a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. When the eighth-grade boys finish the project, these pieces will be mixed in to the building blocks in lower-school classrooms. When Stephen M. Clement, III, became headmaster, in 1988, parents didn’t ask much about what their boys would learn about technology, he says. Today, tours of the K-12 school for parents of prospective students make an obligatory stop at the technology lab. “From seeing it as a potential force that might wreck the finances of…
