The Horizon Report identified a few early-adopter institutions that are ahead of the game and already putting 3D printing to use. We’ve linked to each of them below (along with the description provided in the report) so you can check out some of what the investigators saw as great examples. edudemic.com
3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. www.ted.com 3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. Think: a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing[1] is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. en.wikipedia.org 3D printing - Wikipedia
The Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) is a multidisciplinary unit, created in 2009, combining programs formerly housed in the Departments of Educational Policy and Administration, and Work and Human Resource Education. www.cehd.umn.edu
3D Printing is an SFF Process which creates parts in layers. Each layer is formed by spreading powder and selectively joining the powder by ink-jet printing of a binder material. www.dtic.mil
3D printing is the process of creating an object using a machine that puts down material layer by layer until the desired object is formed. Such printers use specifications generated by computer modeling applications or by3D scans of existing objects. www.educause.edu
People from a broad and diverse array of industries and backgrounds and levels of expertise described similar ways that 3D printing helped them get past key cost, time and complexity barriers. bigthink.com

He doesn’t plan on realizing the dream until 2014. So just because he has plans to build the world’s first 3D-printed building, it would appear that others have time to nab the title first. techcrunch.com Sure, 3D printing is fun and cute. And products like the Makerbot and Form 1 will most certainly disrupt manufacturing, even if it's only on a small scale. But the possibilities of 3D printing stretch far beyond DIY at-home projects. In fact, it could entirely replace the construction industry. …

The graduate and professional student governance on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota rests with the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA). gapsa.umn.edu The graduate and professional student governance on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota rests with the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA). All currently registered full-time graduate and professional students at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and full-time Pharmacy and Medical Students at University of Minnesota-Duluth are members of GAPSA. It was established in 1990 as a non-profit (IRS 501 (c)(3)) confederation of independent college councils representing all graduate and professional students at the University of Minnesota to the Board of Regents, the President of the University, the University Senate, the University at large and wider community. GAPSA serves as a resource for member councils, as the primary contact point for administrative units, as a graduate and professional student policy-making and policy-influencing body, and as a center of intercollegiate and intra-collegiate interaction among students.
For more than 100 years, our faculty, students, staff, and alumni have had a deep and historic impact on society. www.cehd.umn.edu
