For Educators

We understand that choosing a 3D printer for your primary, elementary or middle school can be a difficult decision.

 

While many will be great for high school students or a hobbyist, some are less suited for regular use in a K-8 classroom, Makerspace or library environment.

At Project 3D Printers, we’ve helped thousands of K-8 teachers in America, Australia, Europe and Asia integrate 3D printing and design into the classroom so we understand what works and what doesn’t.

From our conversations with teachers, we understand that the most important criteria for schools when choosing a 3D printer are:

  1. Plug ‘n’ play – that is, ease of use;
  2. Affordability;
  3. Durability;
  4. Safety;
  5. Air Filters – learn why air filters are important;
  6. Reliability; and
  7. Customer support.

Additionally, the ability to print wirelessly or over the Cloud, thereby eliminating the need for USB memory sticks or even being in the same room as the 3D printer, is another useful feature to consider.

The 3D printer market is fast-changing – almost every new 3D printer brings some new feature that will soon be standard on all printers, but none of the current printers on the market has every single one of the current, must-have features. With this in mind, here is our current list of recommended 3D printers.
