    12 Questions with KSU Motorsports: 3D Printing For Formula SAE

    March 26, 2015

    We’re getting ready for our 3D Printing event with Stratasys and KSU Motorsports next week in Marietta, Georgia. This week, we had a chance to sit down with the team’s president, Alec Blair, a Senior at Kennesaw State University majoring in Mechanical Engineering Technology. He was able to give us an in-depth look at the impact 3D printing has on their team’s performance and the school’s engineering program.

    TriMech Donates 3D Printers to Virginia Tech

    November 12, 2014


    TriMech and Stratasys donated four MakerBot 3D Printers to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University to help commemorate the opening of Goodwin Hall, Virginia Tech’s newly constructed Signature Engineering Building. Along with the MakerBots, Virginia Tech purchased an Objet500 Connex 3, Fortus 360, and uPrint-SE Plus.
    These additions to the AOE 3D print lab are part of an ongoing effort to position Virginia Tech as a leader in engineering innovation and advancement. The department now has a total of seven PolyJet and FDM 3D printers, providing students with increased access to this rapidly evolving technology.

    Aerospace engineering applications include printing models for the program’s Subsonic Open Jet Wind Tunnel and as instrumentation for graduate level research in the Virginia Tech Stability Wind Tunnel. Several undergraduate labs will also take advantage of the large platform machines for underwater glider design competitions. The school has already designed vertical stabilizers for their underwater glider on a 3D printer. In the Ocean Engineering program, graduate-level research takes advantage of larger machines to print props, nose cones, and other components for various research projects advised by Dr. Neu.

    The advanced AEO 3D print lab offers a wide range of additive manufacturing capabilities and prototyping solutions. The new Objet500 Connex3 printer has one of the biggest build envelopes offered by the Connex platform and offers multi-material and multi-color printing.
