Making, Learning, Collaborating, and 3D Printing in the Community: Dayton Mini Maker Faire

Back in March, when I visited Dayton, Ohio’s resident 3D printing bar, Proto BuildBar, I was told that its employees would be exhibiting at a local school’s STEMfest later that month, and at another educational event this summer: the Dayton Mini Maker Faire. After thoroughly enjoying my visit to STEMfest, I definitely didn’t want to […]

35 Schools Awarded 3D Printers Thanks to Dremel's #LearnMakeGive Contest: Educators Tell Us What Winning Means for Their Students

When I was in middle school shop class, we engraved plastic keychains. There was no design to them other than settling on the brief text we wanted and ensuring we didn’t get our preteen fingers caught in the heavy machinery. Kids today are also able to create their own personalized keychains — but they do […]

Marine Corps Captain 3D Prints Water Bottle Prototype, Designed to Reduce Logistical Footprint in Military Convoys

3D printing is often used in the military, to make objects like the small but useful TruClip, or munitions. We also see 3D printing utilized often in a classroom setting, to teach students of all ages about the technology so they’ll have a leg up when they are starting their careers later. The technology is also […]
