A picture says more than a thousand words. But a 3D model to look at and touch says even more than that. Becoming 3D is partnering up with the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery and Science to show and explain their visitors the world in more details – in 3D.
Leveraging 3D-printing technology, it enables people for a hands-on experience on whatever subject they are interested in. Unlike classical paper printing, in 3D-printing, models are created by adding layer on layer until the desired object is replicated in real.
“We are very excited to partner with the Museum of Discovery and Science to bring this dynamic 3D technology to the kids and families of Fort Lauderdale,”… “The museum is a terrific venue to expose both children and adults to one of the fastest growing technologies in the world. Our goal is to increase awareness in order to foster creativity and innovation.”
– Grant Sadowski, Becoming 3D CEO
3D-printing is very popular right now for several reasons. In this case it enables for a whole new dimension of learning and comprehension. I am certain it adds a lot of value to the museum visitors to be able to see, turn, twist and touch objects. Many people have a strong learning capabilities for haptics (things you touch) and can finally benefit from that.
Becoming 3D is an interesting Startup company that you might want to check out in more detail. If you require modeling or realistic simulations they might be able to help. They also have a focus on education and learning and prepared a bundle for schools, which want to embrace this way of learning.
