PolyJet 3D printing: a powerful tool in education

Share This Post

From classrooms to cutting-edge research labs, 3D printing is rapidly transforming education across subjects including engineering, medicine, automotive and fashion. 

As these sectors continue to develop and increasingly rely on 3D printing, its presence in education will continue to grow, preparing future generations with the skills and knowledge required to navigate a more digitalised world.

PolyJet 3D printing is a state-of-the-art technology that prints with high-definition and incredible detail and accuracy. It can produce specialised moulds, prototypes, medical models, jigs, fixtures and other manufacturing tools, incorporating the widest variety of vivid colours and materials into a single print for unparalleled efficiency and versatility within design and product development.

The versatile capabilities of PolyJet 3D printing facilitates hands-on, experimental learning, encouraging critical thinking, problem-solving, and innovation skills. It enables students to test theories, design and produce tangible products, and replicate real-world scenarios.
