Realistic Learning with 3D Printing
3D printing technology has evolved greatly since its invention in 1987. Today, 3D printing can utilize many materials for a wide range of applications. The prices of 3D printers have also dropped drastically in the last 10 years when many of the patents expired.
In 2020, the global 3D printing market size was valued at around US$12.6 billion, and the industry is expected to grow at 17% a year between 2020 and 2023.
Educators have started using 3D printing as a teaching tool. Accurate physical prototypes help students better understand concepts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects. Overall, it promotes active learning, improves participation, and encourages creative thinking.
How can manufacturers develop 3D printing into an essential teaching tool for educators?
