"Models produced by the Objet24 are very versatile. They can be painted, drilled, machined, or used as molds for vacuum forming and casting, so we're using it on a very wide variety of projects," says Belcher. "Printing to an accuracy of 0.1mm, the Objet24 provides the high level of detail and precision required for this sort of work and the students get hands-on experience of why this is important and what the issues could be around both the design and manufacturing process. So it's practical, educational, and the kids enjoy using it too."
The Objet24 3D Printer also features in the popular and expanding Design Technology IB Diploma course, where students focus on the use of CAD software and CAM equipment to produce excellent functioning prototypes.
ACS Egham purchased the Stratasys Objet24 through UK distributor Tri-Tech3D. Tim Smith, Sales Manager at Tri-Tech, comments, "It's fantastic to see the depth and breadth of the 3D printing projects at Egham school. The students really seem to be getting the most out of the fine detail, accuracy and versatility of the models printing with the Objet24 3D Printer."
