At Makers Empire, we regularly test 3D printers for their suitability to elementary, primary and middle school environments. We only suggest (and sell) 3D printers that we genuinely think are the best options for teachers. You can see which printers we recommend at our Best 3D Printers for Schools (America) and Best 3D Printers for Schools (Australia).

Schools who purchase 3D printers from Makers Empire enjoy access to the expertise and ongoing support provided by our 3D printing hardware expert, Luke. Luke eats, lives and breathes 3D printing so he can help with any kind of technical problem. Equally importantly, Luke genuinely understands that most people are not 3D printing experts, and is great at explaining things in a clear, patient and helpful way.

Luke recently put together a series of help articles for teachers who are using a FlashForge Inventor IIS 3D printer in their school. Check them out by clicking the links below:

We hope you find these articles useful. Let us know if you have any requests for other help articles via info@makersempire.com.
