3D Printing: D&T

We are often asked advice on 3D printing, whether it be about which machine to buy, what software to use or how to integrate 3D printing into the curriculum. 

3D printing

My husband, Paul Boyd, has a lot of experience working with 3D printers, including being one of the lead consultants on the DfE 3D Printers into Schools project, so if you have any queries about 3D printing contact him direct at paulboyd@mac.com

See an example of a department bid Paul has produced to support a school who want to buy a 3D printer. You might find this bid useful if you are looking for guidance on investing in a 3D printer for your school. The bid outlines the costs and benefits of different types of printers depending on the budget available. It also outlines the costs of training by Paul if this is also required. All training that Paul does on 3D printing covers the use of the machine, CAD software, as well as tips on teaching and learning when using a 3D printer. Note the quote is a guideline only and information is accurate from the date listed on the sheet. If you would like a free up to date quote specifically for your school’s needs contact Paul at paulboyd@mac.com

What delegates say about Paul’s 3D printing courses:

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the training last week, we have just had our department meeting and everyone thought it was the best training day they have had because it was so hands on, so thank you.
