Get Started with 3D Printing
Joel Telling has always been a nerd – starting with erector sets as a small boy. But, since getting his first 3D printer as a Christmas present, he’s moved on to bigger things. Today, Joel is the host of the “3D Printer Nerd” YouTube channel and a go-to resource for tips, techniques and product reviews of this new technology.
Pick the Right 3D Printer
Braydon Moreno co-founded of Robo 3D to create high-performance, low-cost 3D printers. Since then he and his team have discovered they are crucially valuable in schools helping excite students in learning STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Tonight, he explains how Kickstarter got them started and a blind girl gave them focus.
3D Printing in Education
3D printers reward students by allowing them to turn their ideas into reality. Imagine how this can inspire students to learn more about engineering and program. Tonight, we talk with John Jordan, a teacher in the Stevens Point, Wisconsin, School District about how 3D printers are used in education.
3D Printing in Media
James DeRuvo has long been a fan of 3D printing to solve day-to-day challenges in filmmaking and media creation. Tonight, he shares example where 3D printing can help with props, set design and other uses both in front of and behind the camera.
