Imagine designing your own toy and then using a 3D printer to have it printed in recyclable ABS plastic. Or, imagine you need new curtain rings and instead of them being shipped from another country, you print them yourself. Our 3D design and printing classes promote creativity, STEM education, and the 3 R's of sustainability. They can also be used to excite students about history, anthropology, and many other subjects.
