MakerBot Retail | Yale’s Eberhart to Speak in Greenwich

MB3281_Innovator_Eberhart_blogheader

From Early Adopter to 3D Printing Master
John Eberhart, a lecturer at the Yale School of Architecture, remembers a time when the only tools available to an architecture student were two hands and a lathe. Times have changed.

Join us at the MakerBot Retail Store in Greenwich, CT this Thursday, April 24th and discover how Eberhart is using MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers to change the way students think about architecture. Eberhart will discuss his 15-year career as a professional architect and instructor at the Yale School of Architecture. Click here to register.

Eberhart was always an early adopter. He began his career at Yale as a student of architecture and was the first in his class to use a 3D computer rendering to present his final project. Yale hired Eberhart right out of college, and he got to work making the architecture program one of the most technologically advanced in the country. He even purchased a high-end 3D printer in 1999. However, there was one big obstacle: cost.

“Yale architecture students have to pay for their own building materials, and our earlier 3D printers ran students $200-400 per print,” Eberhart explains. Those prohibitive costs are a thing of the past and Eberhart’s students have made thousands of successful prints since he purchased his first MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers last year.

MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers Unleash Student Creativity
The ability to 3D print early iterations of a design gives students the opportunity to incorporate greater personality, risk, and creativity into their conceptual drafts. Eberhart says that many students are taking advantage of the broader range of possibilities by letting their imaginations run wild. In the past few years, he’s seen more elaborate lattices, curvy Frank Gehry-esque designs, and far-out concepts than ever before.

Don’t miss John Eberhart’s lecture and Q&A this Thursday at the MakerBot Retail Store located at 72 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich, CT.

    Thanks for your comment. We printed Ron G’s optimized design for this graphic, but definitely appreciate the shout-out to the original creator of the Functional Differential Gear System. It’s one of our favorite prints! – Ben, MakerBot Blogger
