With applications so far-reaching, it is becoming more and more important that students are not only exposed to 3D printing, but also to have experience in it to benefit their future careers.

High schools, colleges and universities are quickly adopting 3D printing technology to allow their students to be at the forefront of this technological advance. With applications so far-reaching, it is becoming more and more important that students are not only exposed to 3D printing, but also to have experience in it to benefit their future careers. Research is relying more heavily on 3D printing than ever before, from prototyping to bioprinting. At a younger level, elementary and middle school students can also benefit from the ability to see their ideas come to life in a tangible form. Teachers can print models of anything they might want to demonstrate to their classes as needed.
