One of the major challenges for students is to be able to clearly grasp abstract concepts. 3D printing is the solution as it is an effective way to improve learning. Nothing makes an idea understandable better than holding it in your hand. There are numerous examples where students and professors can use 3D printing.
A few include Engineering students printing out prototypes, Architecture students printing out 3D models of their designs and School students printing out models of molecules, historical artifacts, artwork, organs, etc. 3D printing in schools presents an opportunity to encourage the natural curiosity of students and stimulate a passion for learning.
