Learn More About Makers Empire 3D


Makers Empire 3D is a powerful but easy to use 3D design tool. As students use Makers Empire they develop their creativity and a Growth Mindset along with important Design Thinking, Critical Thinking and problem-solving skills.

Students love our engaging and intuitive design app, which they can access on any computer, device or tablet. Designing with Makers Empire 3D on touch screen devices is especially popular with younger students, who often find designing with a mouse difficult.

“After having tried several softwares, I can say hands down that Makers Empire has been the easiest for my students in grades 3-5 to access and manipulate,”

Christopher Burdman, STEM Teacher
Joseph P Tynan Elementary School, USA

Now Better than Ever

We worked with teachers and students for months to develop the latest version of Makers Empire 3D.

Improved navigation makes it easier to find your way around Makers Empire 3D while a refined interface makes it easier for teachers to interact with students in the app. Find designs, review students work and leave feedback to push students’ learning. Plus, Makers Empire 3D now supports Google Classroom, Schoology and Clever logins as well as the usual QR code and class and individual login options.

“I love Makers Empire software. It is great to use with elementary age students… I love teaching students how to design for 3D printing. It’s so fun watching them problem solve to create a certain shape by adding or taking away.”
Karen Owen, Technology Teacher
Grace Christian Academy, Tennessee, USA

Get started with fun challenges

New users begin in the Training Lab area, which guides them through a series of bite-sized challenges of escalating difficulty designed to help them learn how to use the app. Challenges present students with exciting problems to solve and inspires their creative thinking. Plus, their efforts are rewarded with tokens and level ups that allow students to unlock new design items and enter our monthly design competitions.

“This has been a wonderful new way to teach and motivate my students…The overall enthusiasm towards school and learning has increased tremendously. Students who are typically reluctant learners have come to life,”
Robin McGinnis, Teacher
North Elementary School, USA

Join our global network of designers

Students love the ability to connect with their fellow designers in Makers Empire 3D. Students can follow their favourite designers, leave feedback on designs, like and even ‘buy’ creations. Plus, as a teacher, you have control over the size of your design community and the scope of your students’ interactions: choose from worldwide, your school or your class.

“The software is easy to use and kid friendly… When we end our day I may about 20 designs that were created, but when we start the next day I see that number increase to about 50. They are even designing at home,”
Irene Barry-Philord, Teacher
Eneida M. Hartner Elementary, Florida, USA

Are your students future design champions?

Every month, Makers Empire runs a global design competition, providing an exciting chance for students to compare their skills and creativity with thousands of peers. The competitions are both a lot of fun for students, and a great resource for teachers. Every competition is designed to introduce key concepts from the Makers Empire Curriculum and provides opportunities for teachers to introduce a variety of design concepts in an exciting way.

“I’ve been astounded at how much the students using (Makers Empire) have developed over the last 18 months. The kinds of design they’re doing now are very sophisticated. I give them a design brief and the extent to which they take it always surprises me. Using (Makers Empire) has really accelerated their learning.” 
Kate Tyrwhitt, R-7 Visual Arts & Student Services Teacher
St Michael’s School, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
