Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

Our 3D professionals' Club is open to all machining students (Juniors/Seniors). To join, the students must be in good standing in all classes. The purpose of the 3D Professionals club is to expose the students to this great new manufacturing process. 3D Club members learn to run our 3Markforged 3D printers and print parts to master the process. Learning by DOING!!! The Club receives many requests to print projects; for example, printing a gift for each
of the T-TEN graduates to receive at graduation. We are currently printing gifts for all members of a department at the
school. It's top-secret so we can't say which department .... spoil the surprise!!! We invite companies/engineers in the 3D printing world to visit and talk about the process. Santavia recently visited the Machining class. 3D club members had an opportunity to speak with engineers about the 3D printing of metal ............. very cool. The engineer from Santavia was a previous machining student, so extra cool. 3D members attend field trips to local and out-of-country companies to learn about manufacturing: one example was Disney.
Dues are collected to support the club:
Juniors $10 & Seniors $5. We also host fundraisers to support the club. 3D Club has been very fortunate to receive donations from manufacturing organizations to help support the club.
