3D Printing in education offers you wide range of new additional options - you can print a 3D brain, a planet, or anything you want to capture the attention of your class and help them learn

3D printing is being used in many schools to create interactive, mechanical and technical lessons. This inspires young minds and makes learning more fun. Due to 3D printing versatility in school subjects, a 3D printer can be used in any school subject. Here are a few examples:


As soon as they see it, they’ll be captivated. Young minds love the latest technology, and it’s the perfect way to help them learn together and enjoy the process. 3D printing Inspires students with hands-on learning about science, engineering, business, design and technology or whatever you choose to print.

Let us help you on your 3D printing journey, offer you the advice schools require to justify the change from learning, not just from traditional auditory methods, but also visual and kinaesthetic methods with the power of 3D printing.


3D printing sounds like something from science fiction, however its been around for about 30 years.

A 3D printer works by “printing” objects–but instead of using ink uses granular materials to build up the image in layers. The benefits of this is that students can learn though visual and kinaesthetic learning styles.

That’s up to 70% of students default way to learn, compared to the traditional auditory learning style, which is only 30% of students preferred learning style.


There are several reasons why additive manufacturing works perfectly for medical applications. An on-demand 3D printing service can be used to quickly manufacture medical devices for patients in need.

Complexity

Surgical implants require complex and organic structures to be accepted by the host tissue. These structures are prohibitively expensive with traditional manufacturing methods, but a 3D printer can create them with no additional cost.

Sterilization

Medical devices must be made from sterilizable materials. Most of the materials used for FDM printing or 3D metal printing can be sterilized by steam autoclave or gamma radiation.

Customization

3D printed parts can be shaped to fit perfectly with a patient's anatomy. Dental implants, cosmetic prosthetics, and even scale models can all be created to exact specifications.

Speed

Medical procedures seldom happen on a relaxed schedule. On-demand 3D manufacturing lets hospitals source necessary parts that can be completed with an acceptably short lead time.

Additive manufacturing has been used to produce hearing aids, replacement limbs, surgical implants, and detailed models of organs, bones, and blood cells. Access to this technology has greatly advanced the potentials of the medical field.

Prosthetics

Additive manufacturing has completely revolutionized the prosthetics industry. From cosmetic prosthetics to fully-functional replacement limbs, these devices can be customized to each individual and produced for a fraction of the previous cost.

Surgical guides

Both dental and medical surgeries require extreme precision. A 3D printed guide can help a surgeon line up holes and incisions with a patient's anatomy. Thanks to additive manufacturing, these guides can be produced quickly and to exact specifications.

Implants Models

3D printing can be used to create perfect scale models of patient-specific anatomy and structures. This allows doctors and nurses to study a subject from multiple angles and hopefully find a solution to the medical problem. Additive manufacturing is an affordable way to produce anatomical models; both medical students and experienced professionals take advantage of this technology.


Production 3D Printing offers a low-cost-of-entry and flexible alternative to injection molding when creating new toys. Allowing designers and businesses to more readily break into the global toy market and scale up. Toys are one of the largest markets for final plastic products in the world.


Toy designers can use 3D printing to create functional models to test and validate among potential users and distributors. This helps to determine the requirements for the final product.

3D printing reduces prototyping time, as it doesn’t require moulds for multiple design iterations. 3D printed prototype toys can be tested for functionality and safety, and the necessary design improvements can be quickly and easily incorporated into the final product design. This way, 3D printing significantly speeds up time-to-market for new toys.


With the development of advanced Additive Manufacturing materials, the sports industry can enjoy new opportunities for more functional equipment.

Lightweight and durability are two key standards for sports equipment manufacturing. But other than these properties, 3D manufactured sports goods can also enjoy the superior design potential of 3D printing. With lattice structure designs, high-performance sports equipment can be achieved with a much lighter weight than with other manufacturing technique. Along with weight, design for Additive Manufacturing allows to enhance the properties of these high-performance materials, hence to make the most of 3D printed helmets, shinguards, soles, shoes, and much more.


Before launching a new product into the market, a number of steps are required to transform a concept or idea into the final, physical product. Prototyping is a vital stage in this process, giving designers important insights as to how a toy will look and function


To this end, 3D printing is the ideal prototyping method for creating functional, visual prototypes rapidly and cost-effectively.Importantly, 3D printing enables designers to produce multiple prototypes in a very short time – meaning that extensive feedback can be used to formulate the final requirements. The iterative potential of 3D printing therefore enables greater experimentation, leading to greater product innovation, and ultimately better parts.


Creating spare parts and rethinking the supply chain


As you may know, additive manufacturing is the best technique to manufacture spare parts. While using 3D printing, manufacturing spare parts becomes useful for many different aspects and is starting to be used in some interesting sectors.

3D printed spare parts can be used to repair broken parts that are no longer produced. The automotive sector is making the most of this technology, some big manufacturers are already using it such as Porsche or Jaguar for their classic cars: this is an opportunity for them to recreate theses old parts identically. This technique is also a great advantage for spare parts as it is adapted to the production of small volumes.

Create 3D data by either an CAD Software, 3D Scanning or downloading 3D models from a web database.

Prepare the 3D model to fix errors, adjust the model for 3D printing or optimize the structure - lightweight construction.

3D Printing with the right technology, the right material and the right parameters.

Post Processing of the 3d object by cleaning, surface finishing or coloring the object to a final product.

Automate 3D printed parts are automatically checked, sorted and packaged for the customer.
