Abstract: From rapid prototyping to medical applications and jet engine parts, 3D printing is a transformative future technology. In addition to industry, 3D printing can be a tool for educators to increase engagement and improve STEAM learning. For 3D printing to fully capitalize on its potential, students must be given the knowledge and access in order to make the most of it. My project integrates hardware and software with existing printers to create a solution that is simple yet suitable for a variety of use cases. The project works to address the critical pain points identified in the research of knowledge, accessibility, safety, and adaptability.
