3-D Printing Saves Time, Money

Jul 13, 2016

A classroom in downtown Fairbanks has the beginnings of a science-fiction story turning practical reality. There are 20 computers hooked up to 20 three-D printers in a lab at University of Alaska’s Community and Technical College or CTC. Teachers there believe it is going to be a huge game-changer for Alaska to “print” objects instead of buying them from an outside source. KUAC’s reporter Robyne visited the lab to find out if it is true.
