3D printers

20 Article

3D printing is rapidly increasing in importance for industry appliances like prototyping or as an additive production process, thus also getting more relevant in education. But 3D printers also offer many unique advantages for use in class. They can be utilized in many subjects at school, promote essential capabilities and are highly involving for students.

PHYWE offers a hand-picked selection of devices for STEM education and vocational schools. The Snapmaker 3-in-1 for example stands out because of its versatility. Other criteria are print speed, precision and usability.

Also important for education purposes is whether there are printing templates freely available online that are are ready-to-use and can be applied without additional effort by the teacher. This is the case for all 3D printers in PHYWE's product range. The best print material for schools are filaments made of polylactate (PLA) because it is easy to use and a biodegradable biopolymer free of contaminants and heavy metals. See below for available colours at PHYWE.
