Koontz-Bryant Learns About 3D Printing


How did that solid cube get inside that puzzle? It was put there by a printer!

Recently, Martha Shotwell, Koontz-Bryant’s Controller, visited Hermitage High School’s Career and Technical Education Center.  Henrico Business Council’s Education Committee sponsored the field trip to show committee members the breadth of available training. Martha was particularly interested in the CAD/3D animation lab, where students used design software and a 3D printer to create puzzles and other complex objects. The tour also included Precision Machining, Practical Nursing, Automotive Technology, HVAC, Veterinary Science, and lunch provided by Culinary Arts. Choosing from scores of course offerings in 16 nationally recognized “career clusters,” students can earn occupational credentials and college credits. Career education has come a long way from Wood Shop and Typing!

Here is a look at other types of objects the printer is able to create.
