An idea — a guid­ing thought that leads to fur­ther con­clu­sions. Mil­lenials use com­put­ers and smart­phones with sim­plic­i­ty. They grew up with the under­stand­ing that screens are not just TVs that com­mu­ni­cate infor­ma­tion into one direc­tion. For this gen­er­a­tion it is self-evi­dent that the com­mu­ni­ca­tion is a two-lane.

Con­clu­sion — as with the two-way com­mu­ni­ca­tion on com­put­ers, chil­dren can learn the fun­da­men­tal under­stand­ing of 3D print­ers. The idea that line by line, lay­er by lay­er a 3‑dimensional struc­ture emerges. You will under­stand from the very start what an over­hang is, how a print head works and that a pen can also draw ver­ti­cal­ly in the Z‑Achses.

The knowl­edge trans­fer — with the sim­plest of all 3D print­ing tech­nolo­gies, this can be imple­ment­ed with­out great efforts or costs. 3D pens direct­ly show that objects for 2‑dimensional expe­ri­ences can be applied in a new dimen­sion. An invalu­able moment when the chil­dren ’s eye shine real­is­ing what they’ve dis­cov­ered.

Junior High School – 3 dimensional sketches

Children learn to Transfer a 2 dimensional Sketch and idea into a 3 dimensional model

In the inter­me­di­ate lev­el the use of 3‑dimensional forms, math­e­mat­i­cal quan­ti­ties and soft­ware is thought. With this knowl­edge, the next step towards 3D mod­el­ing on com­put­ers is worth­while. There is no cost for schools, since 3D soft­ware like 123D Design, which we rec­om­mend, is most­ly free of charge. If train­ing and sup­por, feel free to can con­tact us for sem­i­nars or learn from one of our book rec­om­men­da­tions. It not only cov­ers the basics of 3D print­ing and 3D scan­ning, but also pro­vides guid­ance on mod­el­ing with the Autodesk 123D Design soft­ware.

Utilizing 3D Printers

Preparations for UniversityVorbereitung aufs Studium

  • Project-based work

  • Ide­al for groups

  • Teacher accom­pa­ny­ing instead of teach­ing

  • Sci­ence sem­i­nars

  • 3D print­er as a tool

In this stage, the stu­dents ben­e­fit from the knowl­edge that they col­lect­ed in the years before. On the one hand, you learn how to deal with 3D print­ers, on the oth­er they use the tech­nol­o­gy to achieve goals or to exe­cute projects.

Here, we gen­er­al­ly rec­om­mend medi­um-sized 3D print­ers, which are rel­a­tive­ly sim­ple to use and cost-effec­tive.

The process describes how pupils are grad­u­al­ly brought up to the top­ic in the course of their school time. This is not always the opti­mal con­stel­la­tion and also only pos­si­ble in spe­cif­ic class­es. For exam­ple, only 3D pens can be used in the visu­al arts and 3D print­ers most­ly in tech­ni­cal class­es. We rec­om­mend the book 3D print­ed sci­ence project for all teach­ers and edu­ca­tors to get some ideas, inspi­ra­tion and prac­ti­cal exam­ples. If you have any ques­tions or need spe­cial advice, please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us.
