We have the Me3D printer on trial at the moment. It is much easier for kids to use than the makerbots we have. Seems more robust so far as well and comes with a service package. The servicing is the key for us. Every time our MakerBot goes on the blink we spend hours trying to get it going again (It is currently in pieces on my colleagues’ desk!)

Subject: [Design and Technology] FW: 3D printers

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,
