This 3D Printer, which is still in the Kick-Starter phase, looks amazing. It is relatively cheap, averaging $100 a machine and is compatible with many smartphones. This appears to be a great implementation in many classrooms. It is only small so will only create small items, approximately 2 inches in length, but it will teach students the amazing new technology of 3D printing. It is probably best that it is small as you need to buy the ‘ink’ replacements just as you would for every 3D printer available. You are able to use a design created by OLO, one created and shared by another person, or even create your own (as long as you download a 3D creation software). As it is so small, it is light weight and portable, an advantage in classrooms.
