Education is listed as one of the target markets by the major 3D printer vendors. The reasons for working with educators are evident–teach students early about this technology, train them for future employment. Unfortunately for the students, teachers often lack the training needed to guide students in the use and understanding of additive manufacturing systems. The idea of installing additive manufacturing systems in schools and colleges is great, but there’s a disconnect with the execution that needs to be addressed. I recently had a conversation with Materialise about this. You can listen to it here. Working with 3D printers in education. Let me know your thoughts on this subject.
