Rhino in Education

a place to shine a light on the work of students and teachers

I dislike it when folks use the "fear factor" of 3D printing by bringing up 3D printed guns.  Now I direct them to these great news stories:

  • This awesome dad 3-D printed a prosthetic hand for his son - MSN
  • Father makes son's prosthetic hand with 3D printer - Fox News
    • Collaboration
    • School kids
  • Robo Hand - Google +

Please post more positive reports you find.

Thanks,

JN

John, positive is good, but we also need to make sure that teachers (and everyone else) understand that there are thousands of fabrication technologies... and the 3-D printing is only one.

It is like telling someone the can be a chef if they just learn to use a microwave.
