Dunwoody College of Technology (Dunwoody) was founded in Minneapolis, Minn., in 1914 with the vision to provide a rigorous, industry-focused technical education. As the oldest and only non-profit technical college in the region, Dunwoody has garnered an international reputation for its successful approach. Dunwoody incorporates hands-on, applied learning with 3D printing playing a key part in the curriculum. Students learn critical thinking along with practical, real-world skills that are in high demand. “In the last three years, there has been a huge momentum increase in 3D printing at Dunwoody and students want programs centered on it,” said E.J. Daigle,…

Episode 6: Design a model that looks simple, but does something unexpected. To achieve this, use the capability of Objet Connex 3D Printers to print with multiple materials.
Educators and students, see how far you can go with 3D printing technology with Stratasys’ next “Think it. Print it” education lesson video. Episode 7: Shed some light on 3D printing by creating a beautiful light box. To get this effect, you will use the multiple material capabilities of the Objet Connex 3D printers to print with multiple materials.
Many people are familiar with the work of M.C. Escher. We have all learned to appreciate the impossibilities that this master of illusions artwork presents to the layman’s eye. Many of the so-called ‘impossible’ drawings of M. C. Escher can be realized as actual physical objects, Prof. Gershon Elber of Technion’s Faculty of Computer Science has done just this. His research team has developed a unique CAD application for designing “impossible” 3D objects, with the 3D printer in Technion’s Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning The Belvedere comes to life in a 3D model. All M.C. Escher works (C) the…
The 3D printing process explained visually. Begin by sketching your product concept or idea on paper. Elaborate your idea using 3D CAD software or any 3D content program. Then 3D print the idea using an Objet multi-material 3D Printer which produces all moving parts and different color/material properties in a single production step. A few short hours later you hold a finished, ready-assembled product or prototype. Feel it, test it to validate that your concept really works. This process helps save substantial time and expense by confirming a design before you begin mass production manufacturing.
Robotic snake is able to propel itself forward via the clever use Objet’s 3D printers used to build the underbelly of the snake with 2 different friction coefficients.
As seen on the Objet blog (http://blog.objet.com/), Sam Green (Creative and Content Manager, Objet), explains how this concept lamp was created on the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer. All parts of the lamp were created in a single print job – with no assembly involved.
The advances now occurring in 3D printing allow you to dream up a world of possibilities – right from your desktop. 3D printing represents the cutting edge of the next major paradigm shift in design and manufacturing. Anyone can now produce highly accurate and realistic models, prototypes, production parts or finished assemblies from the ground up, in a single step, within a single machine that you can own and operate from your office or desktop. The 3D printer in this film is the Stratasys Objet30 Pro, the only desktop 3D printer able to create prototypes with incredible resolution accuracy…
Sam Green from the Objet blog visits the Pompidou Center in Paris to witness first-hand some of the incredible 3D printed objects designed by Neri Oxman for her ‘Imaginary Beings Mythologies of the Not Yet’ exhibit which features 18 prototypes of the human body. All models were 3D printed on the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer – the only system of its kind in the world capable of creating diverse geometric 3D forms using a mix of different materials at the same time, in the same model.
In this insightful interview, Neri Oxman,architect, designer and professor of Media Arts and Sciences and Director of the Mediated Matter group at the MIT Media Lab, explains the differences between ‘additive’ and ‘subtractive’ manufacturing. Inspired by things that ‘grow’ in nature, Oxman uses the world’s most advanced 3D printing technology – the Stratasys Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer to produce some incredible models which were on display at the Pompidou Center until August 6th 2012 at the ‘Multiversites Creatives’ exhibit. Neri also explains 3D printing within the wider paradigm shift in technology and manufacturing – comparing it to the Gutenberg…
