“This project not only helped a member of an endangered species, but it gave our students a hands-on understanding of the 3D printing process and how to carry an idea through from a concept to a design to a usable object,” said Sue Prince, Library Media Specialist, Mystic Middle School.
“This project demonstrates how our end-to-end 3D printing solutions provide a seamless workflow that can enable enhanced results from the classroom to the lab to the factory floor,” said Derek Johnson, Director, Product Management, Professional Printers, 3D Systems. “With the right tools and the right focus, no problem is too big, or too small, to solve.”
