Results presentation

On April 22, 2024, a presentation of the results of the 3D printing project took place in the UPrint 3D building at the Palacký University in Olomouc. This presentation was attended by secondary school teachers and students who actively contributed to the creation of 3D models on the topic of cultural (craft) heritage of the EU within the Czech Republic. The Secondary School for the Hearing Impaired in Valašské Meziříčí, the Secondary Industrial School in Přerov and the Higher Vocational School and the Secondary Industrial School of Electrical Engineering in Olomouc were involved in the project.

The presentation began with a tour of the UPrint 3D workplace, which is located in the Science and Technology Park of the Palacký University in Olomouc. UPrint 3D uses the most modern technologies for 3D printing from metals, thermoplastics, photopolymers and paper. During the visit to the specialized UPrint 3D center, the students got to know the printers, technologies and materials used by the center.

After the excursion, the students presented to each other their printed 3D models, which they worked on intensively during the project. All participants had the opportunity to view these models and at the same time exchange their knowledge and experience gained during work on the 3D printing project.

At the end, the students received certificates and a small gift for their work and the results of the 3D print project.

The second meeting in Velenje

In Velenje, Slovenia, on September 20 and 21, 2023, the second meeting of the partners involved in the 3D Printing project took place. This meeting was particularly interesting as it brought together not only the project partners but also teachers actively engaged in the project, collaborating with their students to create 3D models. It was a pleasure to meet this enthusiastic group of teachers, working hand in hand with their students to enhance their 3D skills. During the meeting, the students showcased their final 3D models, providing us with an opportunity to engage in discussions with both teachers and students regarding their positive experiences and the challenges they encountered along the way. One of the memorable highlights was the school tour, which allowed us to explore most of the classrooms. Overall, this meeting was filled with unforgettable experiences.

3D Models by students of the Slovenian School of Mechanical Engineering

Throughout of 2022/2023 school year, students of the 3rd year of VET program Mechanical Engineering from School of Mechanical Engineering, Geotechnics and Environment had been studied computer modeling as part of the vocational module Spatial modeling and documentation preparation. As a part of their final assignment, they described and produced 5 models representing different elements of Slovenian natural and cultural heritage (haystack, water mill). In doing so, students developed their professional and practical skills and at the same time they learned about the natural and cultural heritage of their home region.

Schools Put Together Teams and Select National Cultural Heritage Objects

Teams have been set up within three of the Bulgarian schools that take part in the 3D printing project - The National High School of Applied Arts "Trevnenska shkola", Tryavna, Maths and Science High School "Academician Ivan Gyuzelev", Gabrovo and SU "St' Paisiy Hilendarski", Zlatitsa. Furthermore, an important step has been taken: the careful selection of objects from the national cultural heritage that will serve as the focus of the project activity. Harnessing the power of 3D printing technology, these chosen artefacts will be meticulously recreated with attention to detail, celebrating and preserving the richness of the nation's cultural legacy.

Visiting the secondary school for the hearing impaired in Valašské Meziříčí

The first school involved in the 3D printing project is a secondary school for the hearing impaired in Valašské Meziříčí. On May 31, 2023, we took the opportunity to visit the school and greet all the gifted students who are actively involved in the project. It was great to meet a bunch of enthusiastic young people who shared 3D printing ideas with us. We discussed their ideas with individual students and selected the final 3D modules.

Call for schools

In all participating countries the partners have started involvement of schools into the project. The planned aim is to involve at least three secondary vocational schools in each country into the activity about development the own 3D project on the topic of cultural / craft heritage. The involved schools will get access to the platform with all projects developed so far. Moreover, there will be opportunities to share experience and visit the School Centre in Velenje.
