latest efforts in getting educators behind teaching 3d printing in the classroom is a new free downloadable PDF guide.
I downloaded it and gave the book a quick browse before sharing here. From what I see is actually pretty good content. It’s well structured and features some useful projects, lessons, pictures, etc. Although it’s pretty brand specific and pushes makerbot’s printers, slicing software and repo site, the content can easily be applicable to other things.
If you’re an educator looking for some inspiration, this is pretty good for teaching cad (both solid modeling + programmatic CAD), mechanical engineering, post-processing, design evaluation, and even casting!
I think the only topic missing (which is a big one) is electronics, no mention of arduino, raspberry pi or even just basic LED stuff, so educators will have to look for other sources like Sparkfun, Pimoronoi, and of course Adafruit (just to name a few) 🙂
This guidebook has everything you need to start 3D printing in your classroom, including;
A crash course in 3D printing and 3D design
9 classroom ready lesson plans
Tips, tricks, and best practice from 3D printing educators
