We're very excited in Room One that this week our School took delivery of our new 3d Printer. We've spent the last two or three days organising the printer, running test prints and preparing to problem solve with it. If you are unsure about a 3d printer and what it is capable of you can view this new item here or have a look at the Room 8 class page, as their students posted about it this morning.

This video is the test print of a balloon car, which didn't work perfectly, but was pretty close. We are continuing to refine our printer and our students are confident that we can get it working completely early next week. This video was filmed, time lapsed and put together by Lucas from Room One on Friday 28th February 2014.
Does your school have a 3d printer? What can you make using a 3d printer? What school application should we have with it? What can we consider using it for?
