16 Oct Careers Visit to
A group of students visited CENTRAL SCANNING LTD in Bromsgrove. The company 3D scans objects from coins to cars, planes and buildings on and off site and recreate models in all manner of materials. The team demonstrated several types of scanning systems ranging from handheld to large volume and many different 3D Printers printing a variety of materials including the new Stratasys J750 full colour printer. We learnt how they were involved in 3D printing rhino horns to create prosthesis for hunted and injured rhinos. They also make prosthetic hands, feet and limbs for humans. We actually got to hold the scanners and scan objects. The technology was phenomenal and the objects they were writing were amazing..some of the stuff was to be used in films and TV shows. We could have stayed all day and played with their equipment.
