PrintLab Classroom is an online 3D design project platform containing over 45 projects and online courses to develop 3D modelling skills. Their approach is to take inspiration from the innovative uses of 3D printing in industry and bring these through to education. The curriculum is particularly suited to the various UK wide Design and Technology curriculums. It challenges students to design assistive technology, reusable packaging prototypes, sustainable products, hands-free virus solutions and more.
One of the benefits of PrintLab classroom is that in addition to the lesson plans, presentations and student workbooks for each project, there are project explainer videos to introduce students to the project and allow them to get started independently. There are also step-by-step video tutorials (for both Tinkercad and Fusion 360 software) that help students to learn the software and then use it to develop their designs.
PrintLab Classroom provides a complete online toolkit allowing teachers to pick and choose from over 45 projects to develop 3D modelling skills to build your own pathway for students – saving you the time and stress of creating your own lesson plans. Each project is equipped with downloadable teaching materials such as presentations, workbooks and rubrics, as well as explainer videos and 3D design tutorials hosted on a student portal for a blended learning experience that allows students to learn and progress independently. This is perfect for use in school to develop design and 3D modelling skills whilst access to school workshops may be limited, but also for students to use at home whilst self-isolating.
The low-cost combination of online training, projects and resources makes PrintLab Classroom the ultimate cross-curricular toolkit for schools looking to introduce 3D modelling and 3D printing into their curriculum. The annual subscription provides access to all of the 45 projects and courses, the teacher CPD resources and all the new projects that are released during the year.

“I really like the lesson portal – I was excited to see lessons for subjects other than just science and technology. We have already done the Braille lesson in class and it went really well!”
Carrie Beach, STEAM Teacher, Washington Junior High School
“The written directions and student workbooks, along with the step-by-step video tutorials using TinkerCAD to create the parts for the project are extremely helpful for both myself as the teacher and my students”.
Andrew Capizzi, Teacher, Twenhofel Middle School
“I have four classes of 3D design, all using PrintLab Classroom. The ability to design and create in 3D will be a part of their future, as will be learning from their mistakes!”
Michele Brezovec, Teacher, South Meadow School
“Curriculum like PrintLab Classroom is a great resource for those starting out with 3D printing!”
Steven Jones, STEAM Facilitator, L.J. Hauser Junior High School
