Beginning 3D Printing For Educators

Has your school, library, or museum just purchased a 3D printer? Are you wondering how to get started, and where you can find good educational materials? We will assume that you have minimal exposure to 3D printing and talk you through:
  • What a 3D printer can do
  • How to create a 3D-printable model with free programs, or where to find models online
  • The steps and software involved for common 3D printers
  • Different materials you can print with and why you might want to use each one
We'll also introduce you to 3D printable math and science models we have developed.
