3D Printing Educator Spotlight On: Jayda Pugliese, 5th Grade Teacher with a STEAM-Focused Classroom, Philadelphia

Jayda Pugliese is a young—and already award-winning—teacher who can serve not only as an inspiration to the fifth-graders she is teaching, but also to the rest of the world. The learning in Ms. Pugliese’s class is top-notch, with math students progressing impressively, and many working above their grade levels overall. The tools are impressive as […]

Teacher Uses School's 3D Printer to Make a Plastic Finger for Injured Student to Take Exams

When I was in elementary school many years ago, a good friend of mine was injured when one of the fingers on her right hand accidentally got smashed in her family minivan’s sliding door. It was near the end of the school year, but we still had plenty of homework and quizzes, and as my friend was right-handed, […]

Jerusalem: Second Year Design Student Creates 3D Printed Lace for Historical Dress

Ganit Goldstein, a jewelry and fashion student at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, is showing some serious design strengths just in her second year. One can only wonder what’s ahead for the young artist as she has used not only her design skills but also those left brain, analytical skills in […]

From the Desktop to the Service Bureau: Made for Me Releases Results of Industrial Designer’s Survey

If you have access to a 3D printer, whether at home, the office, or at your university—where perhaps there is even an entire room of shiny machines in front of you—chances are you are dying to use the technology whenever possible. And while there are many things that are faster to procure from a quick […]

50 Schools in Estonia Get a Free New MakerBot 3D Printer to Instruct a New Generation of High-Tech Citizens

Chances are, if you’ve even heard of Estonia, then you probably know very little about it. Over its long and storied history, Estonia has been invaded and occupied by Denmark, Sweden, Germany, and, until about 30 years ago, the Soviet Union. With that type of history, you may think that Estonia is a struggling nation, but […]

3D Hubs Releases Worldwide 3D Printing Trends Report for March 2016

While it’s not always fun to see March roar in famously like that fierce post-winter lion, with winds that blow the mail right out of your hands in the afternoon, we do rather enjoy seeing a good shakeup otherwise when it comes to competition in the 3D printing marketplace. And for the Worldwide 3D Printing […]

Tiny Two-Legged Kitten Saved by British Columbia Community, Students Make 3D Printed Wheelchair

Kittens are just synonymous with cuteness overdose. There’s nothing like seeing the feisty little furballs prancing, cavorting, and getting into general mischief all over the house. And while they might be known as the independent domesticated pets that often don’t have a care in the world for humans and often even turn their noses up […]

3D Print Your Own Articulated Star Wars Imperial Shuttle with No Supports

I have no official data to back this up, but it is probably a safe bet that Star Wars space ships account for a very large percentage of available 3D printable models available on Thingiverse. Star Wars is, after all, probably the most recognizable intellectual property in the world, and most certainly among the most […]

Utah High School Students 3D Print Tripod Device to Tether iPad for Special Needs Student

Most teenagers have two things in common: a love for electronic communication devices — and a need to keep them close for ‘talking,’ which turns into a constant organizational battle as they are ultimately left somewhere, dropped, or lost. An affinity for most new electronic and high-tech innovations can generally be assured as well, and […]
