If An 18-Year-Old High School Student Can 3D Print With GrabCAD Print, So Can You!

As an 18-year-old senior in high school planning to study business in college in the fall, you would think I’d have no connection with engineering whatsoever. It’s true, I really don’t, but with an eye in business, I see great potential for the 3D printing industry. As 3D print technology becomes more accessible to people of all skillsets, it wouldn’t surprise me if the technology changed the way we build and innovate in the future.

3D printing adoption in aerospace

A great deal of new research and application development for the full spectrum of 3D printing technologies continues apace across the aerospace industry. Despite the simplicity of the umbrella term, this is a vast and diverse global industry that encompasses commercial aircraft, satellites, military, and defence aerial vehicles (planes/helicopters/drones), rockets and space vehicles, and, of course, applications for and on the international space station (ISS).

The GrabCAD Print public beta is ready early! Get in here and check it out.

Last month we finally spoke publicly about GrabCAD Print. While it was a great feeling to let the cat out of the bag, we know that engineers only start to really care about things when they can get their hands on it. Well, buckle up. Today is that day. We're psyched to announce that the GrabCAD Beta is no longer private. Click here to get started. Keep reading to find out what the private beta participants thought about our new software.

Making 3D printing in manufacturing a reality

One of the negative side effects resulting from the past couple of years of media hype around 3D printing has been an over emphasis on the past and the future, with much less emphasis on the present. Right here and now in 2016 the impact of 3D printing on the global manufacturing industry and its supply chain is significant, but not as significant as it could be for a 30 year old industry. It’s an overlooked fact, and it bugs me that much of the current value of these technologies gets overlooked in favour of plastic trinkets (destination land-fill site) or futuristic innovations of 3D printing that will potentially enrich our lives in ways we can only imagine — and we dedicate inordinate amounts of time — and column inches — relaying such imaginings!
