3D printing offers students the ability to experience their projects from the model stage to actual creation of the model. This creates both excitement and a better understanding of the design process as they gain hands-on experience it from conception to creation. The individual features are seen more clearly as the student builds the project layer by layer. Excitement also stems from the ability to explore details in reality, not just on a screen or in a textbook. 3D printing also brings the world of theory to the physical world where students can see and touch, opening up new possibilities for learning and activities.
3D printing is an effective way to enrich learning in virtually any discipline. It offers rich opportunities to enhance STEM and design skills. 3D Printing gives students hands-on, real-world projects and concepts leap off the page and into their hands.
