Additive manufacturing or ‘3D printing’ as it is more popularly known is not a new idea, but the availability of simple to use, affordable 3D printers is set to change the way design and manufacturing industry works.
To stay ahead of the curve our young engineers and designers need to know how to think, design and create in 3D.
Schools and colleges are being encouraged to provide 3D design and printing facilities for their students and there are many new and exciting software packages and 3D printers on the market that enable them to learn the skills and techniques necessary to produce amazing real life objects of their own in class.
However, learning and incorporating these new technologies into the curriculum is no easy task, which is why we at Paralogic have launched the Paralogic 3D package.
Designed to help schools and colleges select the right equipment and software for their students and to provide proven, easy to use teaching materials produced for tutors by tutors. Rental options are available to spread the cost of the investment as we aim to make the addition of this amazing new technology as easy as possible.
