Blowing Rock 3D Print Club
ROCKED the Competition!
Join us in congratulating Blowing Rock's 3D Print Club on winning the 3rd Annual Direct Digital Manufacturing Competition held at NCCET in Hickory! This was only their second competition ever and they WON! Students were tasked with creating and printing a catapult and firing it at distances between 10 - 20 feet.

After Blowing Rock tied with a high school, the competition went into sudden death ... resulting in another tie and a second sudden death!
