The first tests conducted on Medical Lake Middle School's new 3D printer produced this bolt and nut.

An anonymous donor wanted Medical Lake Middle School students to have a leg up in the ever-changing world of technology, so they now have a 3D printer.

Exactly what they will do with it is still a work in progress, but the possibilities are virtually endless.

3D printing is used for both prototyping and manufacturing of actual parts or accessories for products.

Real-world applications are common these days, according to teacher and robotics coach Chad Powers, noting that a bicycle seat he just purchased came from a 3D printer. Powers teaches sixth-grade science and Project Lead The Way.
