3D printing technology is improving every day, which means more choices for schools wanting to integrate 3D printing and design thinking into their teaching. But how do you decide which 3D printer is right for your school?

At Makers Empire, we’ve worked with thousands of K-8  teachers in Australia, America, Asia and Europe to support their 3D printing and design in the classroom. So we understand the needs and considerations of educators wanting to purchase a 3D printer for use in a school setting.

We always test the printers that we recommend and we are happy to recommend printers that we don’t sell if we think it’s the best solution for a school. We always have the school’s best interest at heart!

Take this short quiz now to discover which printer is most suitable for your school.
