Attention teachers: thinking about 3D printing in your classroom? Then this is for YOU.
The folks at Make Magazine will be releasing their 2012 Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing. Given the close association between Make and 3D printing I think that this will be a valuable resource to anyone looking to bring 3D printing into their classroom.
The folks at Make brought 16 printers into their labs and ran them through a series of torture and beauty tests. Read on or just skip to the bottom and watch a great video preview of the special edition.
The Maker Shed store listing makes it clear that this will be an exhaustive description of desktop 3d printing. If only I had this when I started off classroom 3D printing I would have saved months of work and some degree of fun problem-solving and a bit of agony. The video description details a Conumer Reports style evaluation process that likely removes alot of individual preference and quantifies the machines and the results.
Watch the folks from Make as they give us a great video preview of the special issue. It hits newsstands on 11/20 – mine’s already on order from the Maker Shed.
