Winners Announced For 14th Annual Stratasys and GrabCAD Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge

Winners Announced For 14th Annual Stratasys and GrabCAD Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge

One of my favorite industry challenges is the global Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge by Stratasys, because it charges students to use advanced 3D printing technology to either redesign a product that’s already in existence, design an original work of art or architecture, or create an entirely new product that improves how tasks are accomplished. We’ve seen some pretty […]

PADT Uses 3D Printing to Create a Better Bike Rack

PADT Uses 3D Printing to Create a Better Bike Rack

Bicycles are great to have – they’re fun, they’re good exercise, and they’re an eco-friendly way to travel. If you’re planning to take a bike somewhere far away, though, you’d better have a way to mount it on your car, because they don’t typically fit on the inside of most cars. Nathan Huber of Phoenix […]

High School Senior Develops 3D Printed Biomimetic Robotic Prosthetic Hand

While I never participated, I remember students in my high school’s more advanced science classes working together for the egg drop challenge, where teams built a container that would hold the egg during the drop and cushion it as best it could – the goal was to complete the drop without having the egg break. These days, […]

Middle School Robotics Team Uses 3D Printing to Help Restore Kentucky’s Bat Population

Have you ever found an animal utterly fascinating, while also being slightly creeped out by it? I feel this way about snakes – I think they are really interesting animals, and I’ve handled them before, but I also wouldn’t want to just happen upon one when I wasn’t expecting it. The same goes for bats; […]
