3D Printing

For 3D printing’s use in education, it’s a matter of bringing objects out of the computer screen and into the real, physical world - and the into the hands of students for inspection, analysis, and other processes that benefit from physical manipulation.

Here are just a few examples of how schools and students can use a 3D printer in the classroom:

  • - History students can print out historical artifacts to examine
  • - Graphic Design students can print out 3D versions of their artwork
  • - Geography students can print out topography, demographic, or population maps
  • - Chemistry students can print out 3D models of molecules
  • - Biology students can print out cells, viruses, organs, and other biological artifacts
  • - Math students can print out 3D models of problems to solve
