HT2 Educational Institute Bundle

The 3D printing world is growing at a rapid place and becoming a valuable solution in many industries. Along with that comes the growing need to prepare our future workforce with the knowledge and tools to continue this technology. That is why we are offering all valid educational institutions a significant discount on our HT2 printer and filaments for a limited time only. 

Our HT2 printer is a great tool to teach, and learn, the vast potentials of 3D printing.

  • Open materials platform
  • High & Ultra performance polymers (ULTEM, PEKK, etc.)
  • Filled materials for any application (Carbon, Glass, ESD)
  • Endless material options & the ability to profile your own materials

Current Educational Institutes with an HT2 Printer


Grand Valley State University Adds GearBox HT2 Printer

Two industrial 3D printers were installed in the Shape Corp. Innovation Design Center, giving Grand Valley students opportunities to learn additive manufacturing (AM) and collaborate with area industrial partners to design and build parts or prototypes.

The new equipment also gives Grand Valley’s applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI) a second location. A unit of the Padnos College of Engineering and Computing, aMDI has space in the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences. Money to purchase the 3D printers and related equipment came from the $1 million in federal appropriations Grand Valley received last year to expand aMDI’s capacity to better serve clients.

Supporting Ferris State’s New Additive Manufacturing Focus

Ferris has one of the leading Plastics Engineering programs in the USA and has a long history of innovation in this space. The university is adding Additive Manufacturing curricula to continue it’s leadership in advanced manufacturing technology.

Quote from Matt Howlett “We created this 3D printer to answer the question of how to enable the printing of higher-performance materials. Ferris has always been great for my family. I have my son who went here, and he has a family now,” said Howlett, president of 3DXTech, a leading supplier of carbon fiber reinforced 3D printing filaments. “I understand this technology and what it can do for students and really help bring up their level of understanding and education in this technology. When I could, I wanted to make sure I gave back to Ferris, so I donated one of the Gearbox HTG2 3D printers, which is now installed in the Additive Lab. The students now can coalesce around it and learn the technology better.”
