WHY DOES THE EDUCATION INDUSTRY NEED 3D PRINTING?

3D Printing makes education visual and interactive.

It is no secret that 3D printing has numerous applications from Animation, Healthcare, rapid Prototyping and so forth, the possibilities are endless. 3D printing has, and will continue to, provide a means for inventors, innovators, and visionaries to easily fabricate prototypes for designs which they could only depict via 2-dimensional drawings and diagrams in the past. 3D printing will certainly spur on new inventions, simply because inventors now have a way to test out their ideas with tangible models and prototypes.

However what 3D printing seems tailor made for is educational institutions. From Elementary schools to high schools, universities all include many subjects and courses that can see a whole new light from the usage of 3D printing. Elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools the perfect place to begin really introducing a curriculum based around 3D printing. 3D printing allows for a better mindset for learning where children can make mistakes and keep going. This contributes to their boldness for design, increasing their confidence and imagination

“It teaches children that it is OK to make mistakes. On many occasions students would print their designs and realise that it was not quite right – maybe a hole needed to be 2mm smaller or a chamfer angle needed adjusting. This could been seen as mistakes but actually they are valuable learning experiences."

Phil Cotton, an award-winning 3D printing educator in the UK.

Application in Mathematics
Helping students envision graphs and mathematical models. 3D printing helps us to easily see them through tangible representations.

Application in Geography
We live in a 3-dimensional world and in order to understand its topography and structure better, it makes most sense that we do so using the 3-dimensional tool that helps us envision this better.

Application in History
If every history class had a massive library of downloadable and printable 3D files you would have students lining up to sign up for the class.

Application in Art
This is probably one of the fields which 3D printing not only supports but expands on immensely..

Application in Engineering
Allowing young students exposure to a complete product design cycle in less than a week will get them interested in engineering and encourage out of the box thinking.

Application in Gaming
Immersive world building games are probably one of the first learning tools a child might encounter in their lifetime. 3D printing takes this learning experience to a whole new visual level.
