Help Bring 3D Printing to Kemps Landing Old Donation School

Makerbot Replicator 5th Generation

Public school funding is a hot topic, and every school in the country could use more money to help improve students’ experience and ability to learn.

While textbooks, desks and classroom supplies are essential considerations, there’s much more required – you have the opportunity to give one school the immense capabilities offered by 3D printing technology thanks to a new Indiegogo program.

TRiBOT 3-in-1 Machine Closing in on Goal on Kickstarter


There’s a wide range of processes involved in manufacturing and design – injection molding, CNC milling, and 3D printing are three of the most complimentary of those, certainly.

That might end soon if the TRiBOT All in One crowdfunding campaign is successful. It’s a Kickstarter project with a goal of $30,000, and it’s set to end on November 1, so time is essential to get your funds behind this machine.

While there’s a range of 3D printing software out there, they are generally developed by printer manufacturers rather than software developers.

On the one hand, that’s not only logical, but a good thing, as it ensures complete adherence to the printer’s capabilities and limitations.

However, it’s also problematic, as it means that people using multiple 3D printers have to learn to use yet another software suite, and fill up their bulging hard drives even further.
