  • Digital Fabrication and 3D printing is one direction the future of manufacturing could go in. What does that mean for your future? Potential jobs designing objects or building/repairing 3D printers. What does that mean for you now? Design and make your own stuff! If you have an idea, you can build it. A 3D printer can be your present-making machine -- never buy another gift, create personalized, customized creations for your friends and relatives. A 3D printer can be your fixing machine -- Broke your phone case? Print a new one. Broke a knob on your dishwasher? Print a new one. A 3D printer gives your physical creations an “ undo ” button -- Printed an iPhone case that was too small? No bother, scale the design up and print a new one.
  • Show a 3D design (Mr. Jaws) Start the 3D printer printing Mr. Jaws
  • Shoes, accessories and even clothing is now being 3D printed.
  • Build a model of your dream home, or build a model of the home you grew up in.
  • Even chocolate can now be 3D printed
  • Medical devices customized fitted to an individual
  • Tools for the home
  • Customizable objects - Example: Phone case. Everyone has one, you want yours to be unique. Replacement Parts - Example: The new iPhone comes out and you can buy new accessories, or you can print your own. Art - Example: Design sculptures digitally (with an ‘ undo ’ button) and then print them in real life. Design your own products - Example: Game pieces for your own game like Monopoly for your school or family. Or a headband for your earbuds...
