THE BEST EDUCATION 3D PRINTER
The use of 3D printers in education is growing at a rapid pace at all levels.
3D printing is empowering students of all ages to explore their world in new ways. Teachers in K-12 and professors in higher education are incorporating 3D/CAD design into their curriculum, in subjects ranging from math to physics, to art & design.
Previously, our 3D printer education customers could get by with a small, inexpensive desktop 3D printer for occasional printing use. However, once the volume of prints increases and administrators need to get large quantities of parts printed and graded in a timely manner, small, cheap desktop 3D printers are not up to the ask.
Discover why high schools, technical colleges, and research universities have upgraded to Fusion3 3D education 3D printers on their campuses.
The Fusion3 EDGE Is The Perfect Education 3D Printer
IN THE CLASSROOM
No technology enables STEM education better than 3D printing. A 3D printer can enable real-world implementation of a student’s ideas & vision and the practical results of their studies. EDGE provides a large build area to print many small student parts at one time, speeding up the production and grading process.
Researchers around the US rely on Fusion3 3D printers in a wide variety of fields, including materials research, medical devices and prosthetics, and other physical sciences. The Fusion3 EDGE prints objects quickly, enabling frequent iteration, which translates to academic success.
LIBRARIES & MAKERSPACES
University, K-12 and community libraries are transforming their mission by incorporating 3D printing as a service or via self-serve makerspaces to their library patrons. The Fusion3 EDGE with itslarge size and fast print speeds provide the ability to print more parts at lower cost than other 3D printers.
Benefits of Adding 3D Printers To Your Classroom:
Adding 3D printers to an educational curriculum makes learning more exciting for both the teachers and students. Help students tap into their innovation by facilitating them conceptualizing their vision and developing it into a real life creation. 3D printers for education:
- Creates excitement and engages students
- Promotes problem solving skills and creativity
- Boosts communication and collaboration skills between students
- Provides experiential and hands-on learning experiences
Education 3D Printer With Features That Schools & Universities Require
Best-In-Class Speed and Print Quality
The Fusion3 EDGE patented motion control system enables the printing of high-quality objects at speeds up to 250mm/s while maintaining outstanding print quality. Students & researchers will spend less time waiting and more time designing, testing, and using their finished parts when teachers and administrators are armed with the EDGE 3D printer.
Safe For Use In Classrooms
Unlike open frame consumer printers, the Fusion3 EDGE is safe for use in the classroom or other public spaces. Its enclosed print area and door with large windows ensures exciting visual experience in educational environments while protecting against contact with high temperature surfaces & sensitive electronics. EDGE is quiet and even includes optional HEPA / Carbon air filters for spaces lacking adequate ventilation.
Large Parts = Large Ideas
EDGE features a large 1.62 cubic footprint volume (14.5″x14.5″x13.5″) while still compact enough to function as a desktop 3D printer.
Users no longer have to worry about cutting up their large projects to fit in a small print volume, saving time and frustration. The print volume also increases the efficiency for administrators, allowing them to combine multiple student projects into one print job.
Safe For Use In Classrooms
Unlike consumer printers, the commercial-grade Fusion3 EDGE has undergone extensive reliability testing. This durability and low maintenance requirements mean you and your students spend more time printing. EDGE withstands use and abuse in laboratory environments and if you have an issue, our modular design makes replacing damaged parts easy.
Inexpensive Materials, Yet Widest Variety
Fusion3 does not sell filament.
Instead we encourage customers to experiment with one of the many different materials that we have tested and certified for our 3D printers.
Our high-temperature print head with hardened steel nozzle can print almost all common materials. The high-power, multi-zone heated print bed controls part warp and lift on high-temperature materials, making this the ideal platform for new polymer research.
Best Warranty & Support of Any 3D Printer
We have so much confidence in the reliability and durability of every Fusion3 printer, each Fusion3 3D printer comes with the best warranty in the 3D printing industry. We warranty your EDGE 3D printer’s workmanship and materials for 2 YEARS. In addition, we provide FREE phone and email technical support for the life of your Fusion3 printer.
