Tell us a bit about your interest in DIY, Making, or Education.

I'm a designer and some of interests are to make t-shirts with designs of cars, airplanes and sailboats on them. But I think my idea to get kids online access to 3d printers so they can print things will inspire kids to design more things. I don't know how this will work for home school kids. Kids in school that excel at math get access so kids that home school should work the same way. Some kids may print a baseball glove, or shoe to run on grass to play soccer better. Some may print a glass or cup. Others may make parts for a robot. Or print a missing part from a toy or missing knob from some equipment at home. Some may print a puppet they cannot find in a store. As a boy I made a cereal box opening to make it simple to open and close. A year or two later I believe General Mills started selling a similar design. I don't know if access to a 3d printer may have helped me prove the idea or not but it will not hurt. Some kids may make a soft tipped hammer with replaceable ends.

Introduction

Hello, I'm near web launch to help individuals & corps. find engineering, design, architect students to do research to design things that sell commercially. And give access to K-12 kids to 3d printers that study math & science.
