Part 5: Creating the right physical environment for 3DP in Education

In this article we present considerations for the actual physical environment for your 3D printers.

This handy, downloadable graphic covers:
  • The printer itself and the safety requirements for student use
  • A 3D printing lab where students in classroom and outside of classroom time can access 3D printers
  • The number of printers needed for your school
  • The ecosystem for 3D printing which includes software for creating 3D models, guides and templates as well as a library of resources and space for students to share with each other
