Educating students of any age and in any discipline, you know you can use 3D printing as a core part of your curriculum to excite your students, enrich learning and encourage their advancement.
Yet, you have a dizzying array of 3D printers and technologies from which to choose. It’s tempting to immediately gravitate to the 3D printers you hear a lot about in the media. And the low initial purchase prices of plastic-based hobby-grade 3D printers certainly make them interesting. However, as an educator, you aim to make professional-quality 3D printing technology fully accessible to your students, easy to use and maintain, and safe and affordable for the school and your students on an ongoing basis.
