Three graduates of Beijing Chaoyang Experimental Primary School recently received a design patent certificate from the State Intellectual Property Office, in recognition of the 3D-printed, simplified Luban lock they created, a traditional Chinese toy. The school bought 3D-printers in 2014 and offered related classes, where the students made the lock. Representatives from the school said they would contact manufacturers to help to commercialize the patent.
