3D Printing

At the conclusion of the 2014-2015 school year, Model's Parent Organization purchased a Makerbot 3D printer for the school! Throughout the current school year, this new purchase has allowed students to extend their knowledge base with a variety of digital programs.

Examples of Use

  • Future City students were able to design and print a miniature blimp
  • High School students in Mrs. Park's technology courses have been working with Sculptris (design program) to design and create projects
  • Primary Talent Pool students experiment with 123D Sculpt to create files for the 3D Printer!
  • Other platforms being used by students include Unity and Blender
