WCHS Art Department recognized for 3D printer production

EKU Professor and Tim Withers

EKU Professor, Dr. Scott Townsend, recently visited Tim Wither’s art class to check out his 3-D Printing and design course. In this visit, Withers was able to show off his student’s capabilities with the program and his own knowledge of it.

For this project, Withers did a scan of Miss Kentucky, who just so happened to be visiting the high school. The product turned out well, and the professor was impressed. The students showcased their understanding of the program and its workings to him, as well.

“His students were true professionals showing me how the system worked,” Dr. Townsend stated in a thank you post back to the teacher. “Thanks for a great day, Mr. Withers! I can see how these students will be leaving your class with tons of skills no test could ever begin to measure!”

The program, as shown by this display of knowledge, is giving the students skills in 3-D printing and the design thereof that is impressive to those working in higher education.
