New this year to the ESU 11 Media department is a Makerbot 3D printer. Local schools have been designing objects in 3D modeling software programs and sending the generated files to be printed on ESU 11’s MakerBot printer. Industrial Technology teacher Bill Ford of Bertrand Public Schools has used this technology in his classroom having students print their work in order to provide them with a working object. Industrial Technology class students designed parts, had them printed and then assembled them to make this working Air Engine. Please contact the ESU 11 Media Department to find out how to have your student designed projects printed.
