Project Lead The Way Selects ZPrinter 450 as Preferred Color 3D Printer for Early Engineering Education
Students can experience prototyping’s impact on design,
working exactly like professional designers and engineers
Project Lead The Way(R), which has exposed more than 500,000 students to its programs in more than 3,000 schools throughout
“Research indicates that more prototyping earlier in the design process yields better results in terms of product quality, cost and time to market,” Project Lead The Way Director of Operations and Technology
Z Corporation 3D printers are the industry’s fastest and only ones capable of printing in multiple colors for high-impact presentation. The ZPrinter 450 is the most highly automated, which is critical for an education setting, and most optimized for a clean, contemporary classroom environment.
“No-touch” powder and binder cartridges enable clean loading of build materials. An integrated fine-powder removal chamber reduces the footprint of the system. And unlike 3D printers that attach support structures to models that later require removal with dangerous razors or chemical baths, the ZPrinter 450 supports models with loose powder that is removed automatically. These capabilities make the ZPrinter 450 as safe and unobtrusive as a standard copier.
“Engineering education is critical for our quality of life, our competitiveness, and our economic future,” said
