The perfect 3D printing package is now available to Australian schools thanks to a new partnership agreement between Geelong-based company, PrintIn3D, and leading Australian business technology solutions provider, Datacom Education.
PrintIn3D has become an authorised reseller of Datacom Education’s Makers Empire educational program that delivers easy-to-follow 3D printing software and learning programmes suitable for students from pre-school to Year 12.
The Makers Empire educational package is available from PrintIn3D to schools which currently have a 3D printer or can be bought as a bundle with the Cube3 printer. A range of non-toxic plastic filaments are also available including the water-soluble Infinity filament that can be used to provide supports for more intricate 3D printed structures.
PrintIn3D is also authorised to sell the popular 3D Systems’ Cube3 3D printer which is internationally certified as safe to use by children aged eight and over.
“Combining the Cube3 printer with the Makers Empire educational package enables teachers to safely and effectively deliver outcome-based lessons involving 3D printing across a range of science, maths and arts subjects,” said PrintIn3D director, Paul Cartwright.
“We’ve found many schools want to include 3D printing in their lesson programmes but are unsure how to incorporate this important technology into curriculum-aligned learning results,” Mr Cartwright said.
“The Makers Empire software is the ideal match with the Cube3 printer to engage students of all ages to discover how 3D printing will continue to have a core role in their future lives and careers,” he said.
"Datacom is very pleased to welcome PrintIn3D as a reseller of the Maker Empire learning program. Our decision to partner was based on PrintIn3D’s reputation as an organisation with a strong passion for education and a determination to deliver exceptional service to Australian schools,” said Datacom General Manager of Education, Tony Panetta.
“This is an exciting time to be in education. Technological solutions, like 3D printing, provide schools with an arsenal of new and innovative tools to support learning and help teachers develop the most valuable assets of the future – our children,” Mr Panetta said.
“PrintIn3D has embraced the importance of combining great 3D hardware technology, like the Cube3, with the Makers Empire Learning program, and Datacom’s Professional Learning methodology to produce one of the best learning experiences for students and teachers. We look forward to establishing a successful partnership with Paul and the team at PrintIn3D,” he said.
