Call for Submissions: Ideas, Insights, Inspirational Stories in 3D Printing


Ideas. Information. Insights. Inspirational Stories.

My name is Steve Kayser. I recently joined the Polar 3D team to help get the word out about the Polar 3D mission, "Inspiring Students to Think Like Entrepreneurs."

Share Your Story?

To help fulfill this mission we feel it's important to share ideas, information, insights and inspirational stories. This is where you come in. We'd like to invite educators, entrepreneurs and students to share your hard-earned knowledge and wisdom about design thinking and curriculum development using 3D printing.

Editorial Requirements

The editorial requirements are simple. Be helpful, authentic and transparent. We're going to publish articles, images, videos, tips and tactics here.  If you're interested in contributing to our collaborative knowledge sharing effort, email me at, with the subject line - Submission. Article length and depth are up to you. Typically 500-1500 words works best. An accompanying image also helps. In addition we encourage you to sign up for updates (using the subscription button on the right side of this page) so you can benefit from the shared knowledge and wisdom.

Making Meaning

Inspiring students to think like entrepreneurs is the goal - but remember - students can be from 6-years of age to 106. The reason to inspire students to think like entrepreneurs? To help change the world for the better. And... to make meaning. What do I mean by making meaning? The opportunity to make a difference. 3D printing, even though it's been around awhile, is still in its embryonic stage. But what it has been accomplishing lately is no less than astounding. Watch the videos below. You'll understand what I mean when I say making meaning. And we look forward to your submissions
