3D Printing in Education

Build the future, one model at a time

“Our partners [in industry] have praised UVA graduates for immediately understanding crucial design concepts.”

— Dwight Dart, design lab engineer, University of Virginia

Integral to Discovery

Tomorrow’s engineers, designers and problem solvers deserve every tool available to build a brilliant future. 3D printing fuels limitless creativity when students get to see, hold and test their ideas in real space.

Bringing 3D printing into the classroom exposes learners to the same cutting-edge technologies they’ll encounter in their careers. It gives them a jump-start on tomorrow’s challenges. For researchers, Stratasys 3D Printing breaks barriers with unmatched material capabilities, including impressive detail, precision and durability.
