Learning with 3D Printers

At Berwick Lodge Primary School we have two 3D printers. The first was donated to the school by DREMEL in 2015. It uses propriety software to print, but the second  printer (a 2017 Mini 3D Duinotech Printer) uses open source software.

The students use Sketch-Up and Slic3r to create and print 3D objects from the printers. Students work collaboratively to create designs while learning to communicate effectively and think critically.
