Hi everyone, we’ve had an enquiry from a teacher about 3D printers -

I work in a school that is considering buying 3D printers.
Some of the staff saw a presentation from a company known as Me3D.
The STEM co-ordinator along with 2 IT teachers keen to buy these as they are fully supported, but I was a bit concerned at the price, the fact that the software to print is cloud-based, and we have as a school only looked at this printer.

Having expressed this concern I have been given a week to come up with more data. So I was wondering if anyone at DATTA had looked into what most secondary schools are using and why.

Do any of you have advice we could pass on?  Thanks,
