We’re very excited that Mixed Dimensions (Makeprintable’s parent company) has won the EY Jordan Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Baha Abu Nojaim, Mohannad Taslaq, and Michael Makdah accepted the award on behalf of the Mixed Dimensions team. We think that this is great recognition for 3D printing in Jordan as well and hope it inspires many more people to start 3D printing businesses in Jordan.

This is a great little project for teacher’s to do with their third graders. The kids construct a Oregon Trail kit with common materials and 3D printing and learn about American history. A model of an Airbus A320 for your printing pleasure. A Savonius wind turbine is a vertical turbine that will work no matter which way the wind is blowing in.  If you’re a medical student or a medic in training one of the things you will do will be to try to access someone’s airway. This Cricothyrotomy Unlimited Trainer  3D printed training kit makes it easy and cost effective for people to learn how to do that.  There could be a vast number of applications for 3D printed medical training kits. This key organizer seems like a good little tool to have.
