Product of the Week: Printeer (a 3D printer for kids & schools)

In today’s digital age balancing technology and the physical world is becoming more of a challenge for parents and educators. In recent years we have seen a movement in STEM education to bridge the gap between technology and hands-on involvement. A recent Kickstarter project, Printeer, not only bridges the gap but brings children to the forefront of the 3D printing movement. What makes Printeer perfect for the classroom or at home is the simplicity in which it takes to operate. This is an ideal K-12 educational tool!

Printeer is for today’s kids, tomorrow’s engineers & designers

Design and 3D print your own creations using an iPad. A delightful 3D printing experience for children and K-12 education.

Unlike other 3D printers, using Printeer doesn’t require advanced technical or engineering skills.  For starters, you don’t need to learn CAD (computer aided design) software, a professional-grade tool that is required to generate the 3D designs used by other 3D printers.

Printeer design software is different in the following ways:

  • It runs on iPad, a platform most kids are more comfortable with than a PC.
  • It can be learned in about 30 seconds.
  • It doesn’t require any intermediate steps between design and 3D printing.

To learn more about Printeer you can view the Kickstarter campaign, visit the official Printeer website or follow Printeer on Facebook!
