Oct. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- On Monday October 1st, Governor Herbert presented two students and one teacher a curious award in honor of the ground breaking ceremony for the Museum of Natural Curiosity located at Thanksgiving Point. As the recipients held their award, they examined the peculiar device they received, which appeared to be made out of plastic. After analyzing their award closer, they discovered that the mechanism was indeed made of plastic and that the cogs were intended to move, and that they did, with just a flick of the thumb!

The method of creating a moving mechanism can only be done using a process called additive prototyping. This process happens to be the specialty of Invent-A-Part, Inc. Rapid prototyping involves the use of 3D printers that build precision parts by manipulating using various types of plastics, using an additive method which builds layer by layer in succession. By means of Computer-aided design (CAD), Invent-A-Part caters to the imagination and creativity of anyone and everyone.  The Curiosity Award was created from the ground up, all in one piece. The final result of a functioning moving part is something that can only be achieved by the rapid prototyping process described above, by Invent-A-Part.

Invent-A-Part has also revealed a new 3D printer for home, school and work on Kickstarter ( .  Bringing 3D printing technology to the home, schools, teachers and the workplace.
