My Project

We spend lots of time in class learning how to build 3D models and prepare them to print on our Makerbot Replicator+ 3D printer. Now we need some help getting those models printed. Makerbot filament can be expensive, and that is why we are asking for your help to get our class all sorted with several new spools of filament. Can you help?

3D printing is the future.

This technology takes leaps and bounds daily, and the adults of tomorrow need to learn how to use it and innovate today. Thank you.

Mr. Patel
Grades 6-8
