Dimension’s STARBASE

By on August 30th, 2010 in learning


3D printer manufacturer Dimension is contributing back to the community by working with STARBASE Minnesota on a way to deeply involve students in the process of 3D manufacturing. The students, from Minneapolis area public schools, are shown problems, data and techniques and they work out solutions. 
One of their projects has been to design a mission to the Planet Mars. They design the rocket parts using 3D modelling tools, which are then actually produced on a Dimension printer. The rockets are then launched (if they work) and the students learn what works and what doesn’t. Experimentation is the path to the truth.
