SkillsUSA Additive Manufacturing Competition

2021 Smart Speaker

Students were required to design a smart speaker, called a “pebble,” using a set geometry that then was printed by Stratasys on one of its commercial Stratasys J55 Prime 3D polymeric printers. The teams were required to leverage color, material, and finish in a meaningful way. Bonus points were added for a pebble that was not just beautiful but touched on functionality as well.

In all, more than 6,500 career and technical education students – all SkillsUSA state contest winners – competed in 103 different hands-on trade, technical and leadership fields during the national conference.
