3-D Printing Comes to SMCDS

3-D Printing Comes to SMCDS

Even though February is the shortest month of the calendar year, its proving to be full of amazing news at SMCDS. On February 11, SMCDS began hosting its first after-school workshops focussed on 3-D printing. Director of Technology Jeff Day designed the course in partnership with Fab Newport, a local non-profit bringing cutting edge technology to students in and around Newport.

The workshop focuses on 3D printing design and implementation. Students are learning how to use the 3D design software, and then watching their designs come to life when they print them out on our 3D printer. It is an exciting process! Even though each class could hold up to ten students, the first class filled up within an hour, and a second was added, and it too filled up within an hour, so a THIRD class was added.

Keep your eyes peeled for some of the wonderful projects coming out of the 3-D printer workshop!
