Educators Inspire the Next Generation of Innovators

We are here to help you navigate the available solutions in 3D printers, laser cutters, vacuum forming, and other digital fabrication tools to best suit the needs of you and your students.

We provide educational discounts, and we will help you find everything you need to get started. We strive to assist you in making your STEAM programs the best they can be.

As the focus on hands-on practical learning continues to grow, 3D printing, laser cutting, and vacuum forming are becoming a valuable part of today’s education.

We have put together a comprehensive guide of Educational Resources for Digital Fabrication to help you navigate the exciting learning opportunities that are available for you and your students.

High Quality Equipment

Thanks to high quality 3D printers, laser cutters, forming machines, and other digital fabrication tools being introduced into schools, teachers can take their students outside of their textbooks and lecture halls and bring their subjects to life in a way that provides a much deeper level of understanding on a variety of subjects.

Ease of Use

Whether you are 3D printing, laser cutting, or using other digital fabrication equipment, most platforms include free software that is easy to use. Some even offer cloud-based solutions that can be handy in a classroom setting. There are paid options available, but they are not always needed. Ask us to help you navigate the options and find the best solutions for your needs.


Curriculum & Lesson Plans

Curriculums, lesson plans, and professional development courses are available to help you get the most out of your digital fabrication investment. We are happy to help you understand the different options and what they have to offer.

Educational Inspiration

With the rising demand of STEM requirements, a growing number of schools are adopting digital fabrication tools into their classrooms as a powerful component of their curriculum. See what some are doing with this technology.

Breaking Barriers in Education with 3D Printing

3D printing fuels creativity and enhances problem solving when students get to see, hold, and test their ideas in real life. But what is it actually like to have a 3D printer in the classroom? Mark Peeters, the 3D print artist, Technology Director at Comstock Public Schools in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, and active contributor to our community, is here to share his experience.

Using the FormBox to Increase Student Engagement in the Classroom

Rebecca Maunder teaches at a girls’ school in New Zealand. She has a few different maker tools in the classroom — a 3D printer, laser cutter and paper printer — that she uses to teach the students about product development. She likes to create projects that are relevant to the girls’ lives and that they find exciting.
