TriMech & Convincing Your Professor to Get a 3D Printer

At 10 am EST on Tuesday the 17th, TriMech is holding what sounds like a fun and interesting interview-style webinar called “How to Convince Your Professor They Need a 3D Printer.” TriMech Application Engineer Stephen Choi will discuss some of the important reasons your professor should get a 3D printer, including the fact that the equipment in which schools invest should reflect current technological advancements, as well as promote realistic career expectations for students. Choi will cover the main types of 3D printers used by design and engineering firms, how the technology is used in today’s industries, prototyping and research applications using 3D printers in a class or research environment, and more.

“Professional grade 3D printers are crucial for establishing a solid career foundation in today’s economy. 3D printers have become so accessible that smaller manufacturing and design teams can acquire high-level printers to use in their prototyping, R&D, and final product designs. Many industries are turning away from the plastic extrusion printers in favor of 3D printers because of the benefits and advancements in technology.”
