Dremel, the trusted manufacturer of tools for life and learning, has recently introduced its second-generation Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 printer to nurture these skills through the application of 3D printing in STEM instruction.
The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 features multiple access points to enable simple and complete classroom implementation. Advancements include USB- and Wi-Fi-enabled printing, active filament monitoring, a maintenance-free extruder and assisted levelling. A larger building platform enables greater flexibility in designing and scaling 3D models.
The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 will be compatible with the new Dremel 3D iOS and Android apps launching in May. The printer can also be used with Print Studio software, enabling students to optimize object design and make modifications based upon functionality.
“As classrooms continue to approach education through hands-on learning, the advancements we’ve made to the Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 provide an unprecedented experience with 3D printing technology,” said George Velez, manager, Dremel 3D Education. “We wanted to give educators and students the ability to engage with 3D printing in a limitless capacity.” The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 advancements are a part of Dremel’s full-circle approach to 3D printing in the classroom.
