3-D printing has arrived at Otamatea High School. 

By Lee Dainty


The long coveted and awaited Flashforge Adventurer 4, 3-D Printer has arrived. It will put the Digital Technologies course at the edge of new innovations, especially when combined with the laser cutter. Students can now produce tangible outcomes that can be evaluated, modified, and refined to suit their needs.

Students can create 3 dimensional models using Computer Aided Design software, then send the file to the 3-D printer which produces a small model in about 20 minutes.
