Objet Launches ‘Scholar’ 3D Printer Package for Schools
Israel, Nov 9, 2012 - Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in
rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, announced the release of an
accessible, attractively-priced and all-inclusive 3D printing package for
schools, colleges, universities and institutes of higher education.
Objet30 Scholar Package was developed to make Objet’s 3D printing systems
and solutions even more accessible to the strategically important education
market,” says Gilad Gans, executive vice-president for Objet. “It provides
students and faculties across multiple disciplines - particularly STEM
curriculum studies - with increased opportunities to create and prototype
advanced design ideas.”
Tailor-made 3D printing solutions for the education market are a
strategic objective of Objet. The company’s 3D Printers have been adopted by
many of the world’s leading universities and research departments, including
Virginia Tech, University of New Orleans, Art Center College of Design,
Purdue University, and The Technion.
The package was designed with educators in mind allowing academic
institutions to focus on creativity. It includes the Objet30 Scholar
professional desktop 3D Printer; two or three year supply of rigid opaque 3D
printing materials (Objet RGD240 rigid blue and support material) which
Objet will store and deliver on-demand; a desktop Water-Jet system to remove
the support material; training for users; maintenance of the 3D printer; and
technical support. Objet30 Scholar customers are also entitled to further
discounted 3D printing material re-fill packages.
Objet30 Scholar provides 28 micron layer accuracy and the material features
high-detail visualization for simulating the precise look of standard
plastic products. As well as giving students the ability to develop a 3D
printing project portfolio, the Objet30 Scholar package provides graduates
and post-graduates with valuable knowledge and experience that can help
support future design and manufacturing careers in Fortune 500 companies
that operate similar professional 3D printing systems.
