A student at the Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Center for Giftedness and Creativity has created a high-quality 3D printer, to print stereoscopic geometric shapes, as well as building designs (maquettes), and provides the required drawings with high speed and accuracy.
The student, Abdulaziz Issa, told «Emirates Today», that the idea of the device depends on programming the laptop with a specific model of the required forms, and connecting it to the printer with certain measurements, and connecting the programmed computer to the printer needs about three hours so that it can carry out printing orders, then the dimensions and distances are determined. For each of the geometric shapes or “graphics” to be printed, to come out with the required accuracy.
He added that the choice to implement the idea of the device came based on the entrepreneurial market need for it, as the demand for the three-dimensional image became more than others because of the accuracy of the details, especially in construction and engineering works in general, and the device is also used to form metals in a precise way into several designs. According to the needs of the work to be accomplished, as many designs involve parts and assemblies in their manufacture that need to be in multiple forms and with a high-quality design, especially in the aviation and other industries.
He stated that the completion of programming the device took about three weeks, as the computer and printer were programmed in proportion to the work required to be printed in a three-dimensional way, noting that the device allows entry into many industrial fields that require great accuracy in the design of its parts, which is provided by this device, as most companies It imports what it needs of these industrial parts from foreign countries, and that the device they are working on will save a lot of importers if it reaches its final form of production.
Issa said that he “loved reading in the field of electronic innovations, and participated in all the workshops organized by the Emirates Science Club,” noting that he aspires to become one of the world’s most famous inventors, to raise the name of his country high.
