Raise 3D

For teachers who are looking to incorporate 3D printing into their classrooms for the first time, starting out can be a daunting challenge. There’s a lot you need – not only a 3D printer but materials, a curriculum and, of course, knowledge. PrintLab, supplier of 3D printing products to schools and businesses, took care of the curriculum part recently with the introduction of PrintLab Classroom, an online portal that provides teachers with 3D printing-related lesson plans. Now PrintLab is offering everything an educator needs to get started with 3D printing in a series of packages called PrintLab Start, PrintLab Innovate and PrintLab Educate.

PrintLab Start is the most basic of the packages, providing the essential tools needed to start 3D printing. It includes:

  • One EinStart-C 3D printer
  • One spool of Shining 3D PLA filament
  • One Teacher Training Handbook
  • PrintLab Classroom for one user

PrintLab Educate is more in-depth and includes more tools to create curriculum and lesson plans. It includes:

  • Two EinStart-C 3D printers
  • One Kideville curriculum kit
  • One HoneyPoint 3DP Intro Course
  • Five spools of Innofil PLA filament
  • One Teacher Training Handbook
  • PrintLab Classroom for one user

PrintLab Innovate is the most advanced package, including:

  • Two EinStart-C 3D printers
  • One EinScan SE Scanner
  • One Kideville curriculum kit
  • Three HoneyPoint CAD and 3D courses
  • One Makerversity 10-lesson bundle
  • 10 spools of Innofil PLA filament
  • One Teacher Training Handbook
  • PrintLab Classroom for five users

“We have been consulting and working alongside our PrintLab Pioneers; a large group of teachers from around the world for some time now and with their input we identified that despite an array of hardware options, there is a real lack of focus on teacher training and lesson content that is applicable to core subject areas,” said Nick Mayor, PrintLab Co-Founder. “Teachers require assistance and direction in order to successfully introduce this technology. That is our focus and thinking behind these packages so that together we can inspire minds and prepare the next generation for their future careers in additive manufacturing. We are able to offer complete educational solutions at prices that comfortably beat many 3D printer-only packages.”

PrintLab Start retails for an MSRP of $799, PrintLab Educate for $1895 and PrintLab Innovate for $3999.

It’s widely agreed upon by educators and those in the 3D printing field that it’s extremely important to educate today’s children about 3D printing, and the sooner the better. There are still schools, however, for which 3D printing isn’t a focus, whether that’s for financial reasons or for a lack of teachers educated on the subject. PrintLab has worked hard to fill in those gaps, providing schools and teachers with everything they need to introduce students to 3D printing, or even give them a more advanced education, for a reasonable price. The release of the Education Packages was meant to coincide with the release of PrintLab Classroom, which arrived earlier this month. Teachers have access to 12 creative projects through PrintLab Classroom, with two more being added each month.

Also coinciding with the release of PrintLab Classroom is a chance to win an EinStart-C 3D printer; you can enter here. A winner will be chosen on February 12th.
