A Collage of 3D Printing Possibilities


The first time I used 3D was in 2004, in a course at university, but the quality back in those days was so horrible that I didn’t use it further. Of course, the materials are very different, especially in terms of weight.

3D Printing and How to Make Almost Anything


Abel has many years of 3D printing experience under his belt, and teaches both introductory, advanced students, and community members the art of 3D design, 3D printing, and making, through courses such as “How to Make Almost Anything.” In the fall, the course is offered during the day.

At the same time, universities can increase their appeal as centres of education by utilizing the expertise they have gained to offer a corresponding range of courses on key 3D printing technology topics. EOS Academia programme promotes 3D printing at universities and research institutions.

Of course, there are still kinks that need to be worked out. In 2004 he unveiled a transformational printing technique called Contour Crafting. Space is known as the final frontier, and humans have long dreamed of conquering it.

Engaging Students is Key

Wohlers Talk

In 2004, the average annual income for a high school drop out was about $16,500, compared to more than $26,000 for a graduate. student when he began to apply concepts in hands-on courses. Some of them are beginning to bring additive fabrication (AF) and 3D printing into their courses, which is a perfect fit. The U.S. has dropped to tenth place worldwide in high school completion, according to the September 2007 issue of Manufacturing Engineering.

Now, of course, it has—with occasional exceptions–been reversed. Articles such as this one which ran in BusinessWeek in 2004 bemoaned the “China Price,” product prices so low that manufacturers located in higher-cost countries simply could not compete. A new study of global manufacturing costs by The Boston Consulting Group finds that, just since 2004, China’s cost advantage over the U.S. Of course, such studies should always be taken with a grain of salt.
