Free 3D Printers For Schools With Australian Company The 3D Printer

The free use of 3D printers for schools sounds like a bit of an improbability.

CSIRO Launches High-Tech 3D Printing Lab in Australia

CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation), the scientific research arm of the Australian government, has just launched $6 million 3D printing lab, Lab 22. And, to immediately give businesses access to the new lab, they’ve signed a deal with Canberra-based start-up Made for Me and Keech3D. Lab 22 is meant to increase access to industrial 3D printing systems by allowing businesses to have parts printed on such machines, without the capital risk of purchasing them. Alex Kingsbury, CSIRO additive manufacturing research leader, explains, “This advanced equipment is in the range of $1 million per unit, but the vast majority of small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) don’t have that amount of capital on-hand to take a leap of faith on a new or emerging technology.” Kingsbury continues, “We’re providing Australian companies with a unique opportunity to access some of the most advanced additive manufacturing equipment with the help of our experienced technical experts, for a comparatively minimal daily fee.”
