Objet LTD, a leader in the rapid prototyping (RP) and additive manufacturing (AM) industries, announced the launch of the Objet30 Scholar Package. This 3D printing package is more accessible and affordable and was developed with schools, colleges, universities, and institutes of higher education in mind.
As Gilad Gans, Executive Vice President for Objet, explains, “The Objet30 Scholar Package was developed to make Objet’s 3D printing systems and solutions even more accessible to the strategically important education market. It provides students and faculties across multiple disciplines – particularly STEM curriculum studies – with increased opportunities to create and prototype advanced design ideas.”
Indeed, Objet’s printers are already found in many of the world’s leading universities and research departments, including Virginia Tech, University of New Orleans, Art Center College of Design (as featured in the video above), Purdue University, and The Technion.
This new 3D printing software package was designed for creativity. The Objet30 Scholar package includes the Objet30 desktop printer, a 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 (in order to remove the support material), training for users, maintenance of the printer, as well as technical support. Objet30 Scholar customers will also be entitled to further discounted 3D printing material re-fill packages.
According to the Objet press release, “the 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.”
