HCID 2014: 3D printing now and in the future. Martin Stevens & Trupti Patel, it is 3D Ltd

  1. 1. “A 3D printer in every school” Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education July 2013 Martin Stevens it is 3D 3D Design & Print for schools
  2. 2. 3D printing in context •What is special about 3D printing? • Sculptor v potter • Additive v subtractive • Layering • Personalisation • Everything can be printed •Is it is 3D a 3D printer company? • What is 3D printing without design?
  3. 3. Our solution • Grounded in the curriculum • Provide design tools for all • Train teachers in modern technologies • Cross-curricular projects • More learning, less teaching • Hands on experience for pupils
  4. 4. The issues for schools 3D Machining 3D Scanning 3D printing 1. Exam results 2. League tables 3. Cheapest route 4. Easiest route
  5. 5. The real issues 3D Machining 3D Scanning 3D printing • Pupil engagement at school • STEM • Entrepreneurialism • Design, creativity, innovation • Employability skills
  6. 6. 3D products 3D Machining 3D Scanning 3D printing • 3D printing • 3D design • 3D CAD training • 3D scanning • 3D machining • 3D visualisation
  7. 7. Benefits of using 3D technologies •Teaches creative skills •Teaches technical skills • Whole school relevance • Soft skills for employment • Motivation • A 3D future
  8. 8. Relevance of 3D technologies in the classroom (and across the school – whole school benefit) • Most effective use of ICT in curricular delivery •Design & Technology, but also… • Geography (eg terrain maps) • Sciences (eg atomic structure or double helix) • Art & Design (eg jewellery design & make) • Any other subject
  9. 9. 3D printing history 1980’s - today Rapid prototyping Engineering Architecture and jewellery It all changed in 2009 Additive fabrication / manufacturing 3D printing
  10. 10. 3D technologies now
  11. 11. 3D technologies now - engineering
  12. 12. 3D technologies now – prosthetics & casts
  13. 13. 3D technologies now - architecture
  14. 14. 3D Technologies now - fashion Catherine Wales Pia Hinze Joshua Harker
  15. 15. 3D technologies now – chocolate
  16. 16. 3D scanning - museum pieces CyArk
  17. 17. 3D technologies in the future
  18. 18. 3D technologies in the future - medicine
  19. 19. 3D technologies in the future – house building
  20. 20. 3D technologies in the future - aerospace 3D printed parts fly in UK strike jets
  21. 21. 3D technologies in the future – space NASA
  22. 22. 3D technologies in the future – at home
  23. 23. 3D technologies in the classroom Talk to us if you want to: stimulate children’s imagination motivate them improve results prepare them for the future What can you imagine? What can you design? Imagine, design & print Martin Stevens - www.itis3D.com
