3D Printing and Future Careers

My colleague and I have been teaching 3D Printing to educators at Castleton University for a few years now.  It has amazed me that even in this short time how much 3D printing has progressed.  Some people ask me why students should learn how to 3D print because they don't understand what it is really good for except tinkering.  My answer...take a look at the new careers out there using the concepts of this technology!

This technology, now called, additive manufacturing, is everywhere... construction, medical field, fashion, archeology, and so many other places.  Just take a look at a couple of these videos and see what it is being used for.

I think you get the idea.  This technology not only requires students think creatively, but also to use software to make their vision come to life in 3D using specialized software.  It is a different way of thinking and creative problem solving.  The uses for this technology are expanding rapidly and career opportunities for students who have had exposure and experience creating in this way will really have a leg up in the industry.
