3D printing is “just another tool in the tool box,” but the implementation of this technology within the ceramics curriculum has its challenges. Among those are facilities, funding and competent staffing. The rewards become evident as students embrace the technology to carry out their concept in a unique way not possible without it.  This week, join Shoji Satake for his part of the co-lecture, “TEACHING TECHNOLOGY: CHALLENGES AND REWARDS”  and stay tuned for Anna Calluori Holcombe’s portion of the presentation next week on Fab Friday!

Sharing global resources is at the heart of the DIY 3D printing community. The increasing availability of inexpensive materials and an open source knowledge base has facilitated their application in ceramics studios and institutions worldwide. Extrusion-based ceramic 3D printers can print any clay and can be combined with any other studio process, allowing these digital tools to be combined with hand forming methods and facilitating experimentation and collaboration across all studio processes. Join Bryan Czibesz for his Thursday Afternoon session, “DIY CERAMIC 3D PRINTERS FOR EXPERIMENTATION AND COLLABORATION,” recorded live at our 2016 conference and rebroadcast on YouTube for your continued clay cravings!
