ACS Egham students 3D print robots, jewelry and board games

Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, today announced details of some of the fun-packed 3D printing projects taking place at ACS Egham International School, based in Surrey, UK.

ACS Egham's trailblazing Design and Technology department installed a Stratasys Objet24 3D Printer in summer 2012. Three members of staff - Mr. Belcher, Mr. Spicer and Mr. Weatherley - trained to use the easy-to-operate equipment and have since made the 3D printing technology available to classes across the Middle School - for children aged 11-14 - and the High School - for 14-18-year-olds.

"We want to open up the world of rapid prototyping to as many students as possible," says Mr. Belcher, from the Design and Technology department. "The Objet24 is ideal for design students looking to produce highly accurate 3D printed models for visual aids, fit and assembly testing and functional applications."

The 3D Printer was first used by Grade 8 students to design and print components for a robotic design assignment. Belcher enthuses, "Having a 3D printer in the school is fantastic for projects like these because the children can let their imagination run free in their designs. They're not confined by difficulties with production, whatever geometry they can come up with in their design can be reproduced with 3D printing, and we can see if the design works in the real world."

Grade 10 pupils have 3D printed molds and positive objects for jewelry design projects and also highly detailed pieces for board games.
