How to use a 3D Printer in schools

Posted on 25 August, 2013 at 22:25

The latest “Must Have” in Technology is the 3D Printer. A 3D Printer has the capability to create a three-dimensional solid object. Unlike the printers we use today, a 3D Printer will permit students to take their CAPA and TAS artworks and Engineering and Technology projects to a whole new level. It permits students to design the blueprints of their projects using sophisticated software and higher order thinking that current classroom practices are limiting in. At around $2,500, the 3D Printer unit is now an attractive option for schools to adopt. 3D Printers permit students to print in plastic and in metal. Both materials are relatively cheap to purchase as is the software to use. Starter packs for schools are also available from 3D Printer suppliers
