Why 3D printing in Education

Why 3D printing in Education | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"The use of 3D printing opens up a fast route to “Iterative designing”… students are able to design 3D parts, print, test and evaluate them… if it doesn’t work then try again. This inevitably increases innovation in designs that the students produce."
