Why do we need 3D printing in Schools?

Today’s students are tomorrow’s engineers!

3D printing is an exciting, engaging technology and a great cross curriculum tool incorporating Graphic Design, ICT, Science and Technology all into one.

What can you achieve with 3D printing?

You can spark an interest in engineering! As 3D printing becomes more widespread throughout many different industries, and the technology is still developing, equipping young people with additive manufacturing skills is a real opportunity to help them be successful in the future.

No budget to invest in 3D printing hardware?

Additive-X delivers 3D printing workshops to primary and secondary schools which include use of 3D printers and printing materials. Monthly hire packages are also available.

What about designing models for 3D printing?

You can 3D print without designing your own models – just go online and search for the best places to get free 3D printer files. Tinkercad is a great free, online, beginner’s CAD design software.
