Try the Makers Empire 3D Learning Program

During this trial, you will get to design in 3D (no experience required), learn how to integrate 3D design and printing in the classroom, step into the shoes of your student, and try from a choice of lesson plans.

Step 1: Learn about Makers Empire 

Before you get started, we recommend it can be helpful to know how the Makers Empire Learning Program fits together. In this 20 min webinar you will learn about 3D design and printing, how 3D design integrates into the classroom, designing with the Makers Empire 3D software and the lesson plans we offer.

How did you go with your first 3D designs? The shaper module is only of many design modules. Remember all your 3D designs are automatically saved.

Open the Challenges module and explore different designs

You can always revisit your designs, and continue them later.

Step 5: Choose a lesson plan

Download the lesson plan you would like to explore and see how you might integrate 3D learning into the classroom. You can then see how a student would create a 3D design to fit into the lesson.

Now open up the Makers Empire software and choose the right design module. The Bubbles lesson plan will require you to open up Shaper module, and the Maze lesson plan will get you to open up the Blocker module. You can now see how a student might start their first 3D design lesson.

Step 6: Try the teacher’s dashboard

View your 3D designs

Now that you have created a few designs, you can log into the teacher’s dashboard and explore. Your email has your login information.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3
Go to and click on the teacher login (top right corner) You will see your profile, including your username, and students / classes set up. To view the designs you have created click on the classes option in the left hand menu. You will see your name in the students list, and the designs you have created.

Now that you have discovered your designs in the teacher’s dashboard. There are a few ways you can interact with these designs. These include downloading the STL file (format to send to 3D printer), commenting on designs, viewing it in 3D, deleting designs and even getting your files remotely printed.

Look at the Lesson Library

Click on the lesson ideas menu item on the left. You can browse and see the different lesson plans and ideas we offer to integrate into your class. Whilst you can’t download the lesson, you will be able to see all the topics and themes. Subject areas vary across maths, science, technology, english, arts, geography and history.

Step 7: Brainstorming and Evaluation

Spend some time thinking about how you would integrate 3D printing and design into your classroom. What subject areas would you start with? Don’t worry, customers receive professional development training,  part of which will help you formulate a plan of implementation.
