Coex 3D Attends WTEA

On March 17th, 2022, Coex 3D was proud to be one of the exhibitors at the 53rd annual Wisconsin Technical Education Association Conference. It was great for Coex to be back at a show! Like so many other shows that went virtual for the past 2 years due to the pandemic, the 2022 WTEA Conference ended up bringing over 400 schools from throughout the state of Wisconsin to check out all of the great exhibits. Attendees enjoyed getting up close and personal with machinery, ranging from simple hand tools up to complex CNC equipment and everything in between.

On display in the Coex 3D booth was a Creality Ender 3 printer along with a variety of 3D printed products. We also had many samples of the huge variety of colors that are available in our filaments. Since our educational customers range from having very simple 3D printing programs to quite expansive, it was important for Coex to show not only our PLA, ABS and PETg, but also show our engineering-grade materials including CoexNylex™ and CoexFlex™. The flexible materials never disappoint with many people being fascinated by the finished products.

Coex has been a proud supporter of Education for many years and is proud to offer a 20% discount to all schools and STEM-based non-profits. “We haven’t been able to have a lot of communication with so many schools due to the pandemic and it’s great to see how many schools have been establishing or adding to their 3D printing programs,” said Todd Louthain-Director of Coex 3D. “Attendees that we spoke to were excited to learn that Coex 3D manufactures filaments right here in Wisconsin and many schools were excited to become part of our discount program”.

If you are an educator or if you know someone who is involved in technical education or a STEM-based non-profit, please encourage them to get in touch with us to learn more about how the program works. They can also apply here.

Coex 3D is also proud to sponsor select educational and STEM-based programs and projects. Recently, we were fortunate enough to be able to provide filament to the SFROBOTICS FTC #6914 robotics team in St. Francis, WI, used to make their Wall-E robot.
