On June 1st, iMaterialize participated at TedxKids Brussels. The purpose of the event was to educate a group of 56 ten-year olds in the art of production by providing them with a hands-on experience with the sorts of technologies affecting our social environment. The day included a series of workshops, one of which was about 3D printing, hosted by iMaterialize.
They couldn't have made a better choice for educating the next generation into the workings of rapid prototyping than by using an Objet24 desktop 3D printer!
Following it's official launch at the tail end of 2010, the Objet24, which combines Objet's industry-leading high-resolution 3D printing with an affordable price tag, has already become an instant hit with engineering, design and architectural departments in schools and universities the world over.
As iMaterialize write on their blog show report, the kids were fascinated by the Objet 24 and by watching the machine in action were able to appreciate how it uses the additive layer process to build complex models – a process that can be quite a challenge to imagine until you see it for real.
If you think your students, school or department could benefit from the industry's leading 3D printing technology and would like an Objet representative to provide you with more details, click here.
