Hi Students,

Summer is coming – and for DP1 first year DT students this is usually a time to start bringing together ideas for their Major Project noting that these days a major part of this project is the Commercial Production unit and an understanding of how to mass produce your project idea. So here to get your pulses racing is some of the latest developments in 3D printing which are not only supporting designers but in many ways changing the face of design and actual manufacture (check out the 3D printed sundial – how else could this have been produced?)

Have fun over summer – but remember to keep on reading the lifeblood of designers is the amount of inspiration and reading they get from their everyday lives!
