Assumption School Seventh Grader Builds Tires on his 3D Printer

Many Assumption School teachers have been encouraging their students to learn something new with their extra time. Look at this 7th grader! He has been researching and building tires on his 3D printer and working on his remote control cars! 3D printing is revolutionising car-building specially its tires.

Until fairly recently, the concept of printing parts for your car out of thin air was pure science fiction. However, 3D printing is beginning to change the way cars are built even toy cars, and, as the cost of the printers tumble and the software is made ever more user-friendly, this new technology is sure to become more popular. 3D printing would save days from the process of prototyping parts. It’s quicker to draw the parts on the computer and then the printer runs overnight after hours. This awesome student surely made the most of his 3D printer.
