$69.99

Intermediate Skill Level

3D printing technology has made its way to the forefront of scientific learning and technology development, and the Orbis is a great entry point for beginners. The Orbis challenges students to 3D print several of their own components from ready-made designs, opening them up to the incredible possibilities that 3D printing can provide. Students take those printed components, pair it with a lightweight airframe, and blast off toward the sky!

  • Early entry path into 3D printing.
  • No CAD required!
  • Various STL files for wholly unique rockets!

The Orbis bulk pack provides you with the 3D printing files, and all of the additional components for 12 rockets. These rockets can come out looking very unique, depending on the filament you use to print the components and how you choose to decorate the airframe.

For launch, the Orbis uses Estes Mini engines, allowing you to launch this rocket over and over as affordably as possible.

The Orbis in the Classroom

The Orbis is a great kit for the classroom because it shows the connection between 3D printing technology and modern product design and iteration. With the Orbis you will choose from several 3D printed components to complete a rocket, and then launch that rocket toward the sky.

Students embrace the Orbis like any other time they are introduced to the world of advanced technologies. The value from the Orbis comes from showing students the path from idea to technology. After building an Orbis, a student will understand how they can take their ideas, use additive manufacturing, and create real world tools and technology.

Included with this kit

Airframe

The body tube and engine mount are included with this kit. It makes it easy to combine your 3D printed components with the safety of an Estes Model Rocket Engine.

STL Files

For the Orbis, you have several different files to choose from. We’ve included 3 different fin plans, as well as 3 different styles of nose cones to make a wide range of drag profiles and visual characteristics.

Recovery System
