Industry solution|Combination of 3D printing technology and education

As we all know, with the development of 3D printing technology, its application is more and more extensive. With the emerging 3D technology, the combination with education must be the best. In this article, there are the relationships between 3D printing technology and education application, advantages of 3D printing in education, and specific applications about 3D printing in education.

3D printing technology and educational application are complementary to each other and mutually promoting. On the one hand, 3D printing can make students experience a cognitive learning model, which can increase the fun of learning and promote the teaching effect; on the other hand, students can also enhance their practical ability in the process of participating in design and printing.

Advantages of
 3D printing in education

  • Enhance students' interest in learning

3D printing is applied to education. It can increase their interest in learning by understanding the three-dimensional space; It can transform some of the abstract knowledge in the students' books into three-dimensional and real objects, so the teacher will be more vivid in the explanation.

  • Training students' creativity

The enhancement of learning interest is conducive to the development of thinking because students are the most imaginative. Combined with the knowledge learned in ordinary books and the teaching necessities brought to students by 3D printing, it will promote the innovation of the whole learning process.

  • Great for teachers to teach better and students to learn better

In the actual teaching process, with the application of 3D technology, teachers can show some 3D images to students, which makes up for the lack of teaching aids, enriches the teaching content, promotes the teaching efficiency, and thus enhances students' understanding and mastery of knowledge. 

However, the key challenge in education, from engineering and mathematics to geography and history, is to allow everyone to grasp the most abstract concepts. Have you ever thought of adding additive manufacturing for your teaching plan to make your course easier to understand? 3D printing is a solution for teaching so that everyone can manipulate complex ideas in physics.  

In geography class, by using 3D technology to print a globe, students can find their own position on the globe, and also can have a little more understanding of the colorful world.


In a mathematics class, for those complex geometry, students will inevitably have a headache and be tired of learning. However, with 3D technology, teachers can print out those complex three-dimensional spaces, so that students can feel the charm of three-dimensional geometry visually, so as to have a passion for mathematics learning.

In the history class, 3D technology is used to print out antiques, so that students can feel the wisdom of their predecessors, understand the ancient world, and add some fun to the boring class.

In the engineering class, the printed model is not only convenient for teachers to teach, but also for students to understand and master complex engineering easily.

All in all, additive manufacturing enables students to be more innovative and hands-on practical ability, turns students' creativity and imagination into reality, and makes the creation of the virtual world and the production of real-world realize the seamless connection.
