Computer Aided Design and Manufacture has been popular in schools for two decades but surprisingly little use is made of it domestically because of the lack of access to technology. 3D printing is more accessible than laser cutting and our hope is to change that by making laser cutting available as part of our educational provision. Where 3D printing takes hours, laser cutting takes minutes and the key thing is to develop the ability to quickly and accurately make products, test them and develop the designs cheaply and with a postal service. There is obviously a limit to what can be achieved online but our plan is toi tour our proivision to local comminuties on our CAD CAM bus while at home our students can brush up on their CAD skills and designs.
