3D printing in school lessons is not just a vision of the future, but thanks to our instructive everyday life. Find out here how to introduce your students to additive manufacturing in an exciting way.

The 3D printing gradually conquers our everyday life and will soon be indispensable in many areas. In order not to lose touch with other industrial and technology countries (Hungary was already one of the pioneers in 2016), early education in additive manufacturing is recommended from the age of about 14 years, that is from the 8th grade onwards secondary schools.

But how does 3D printing in school lessons enrich the learning of today’s kids?

  • Promotion of spatial vision and imagination
  • Development of planning, engineering and IT skills
  • Deepening of knowledge in mathematics and physics (for example, in the planning of detailed and complex objects)
  • Extension of foreign language skills (the relevant software is available in English, on the Internet you can search for new objects in English, etc.)
  • Strengthening the patience and perseverance of children (improving the management of defeats and developing the need to finish work)
  • Increase of self-confidence (helping to experience success and to enjoy the pleasure of doing a thorough job)

This makes the lessons more exciting and easier to understand

In addition to teaching children many skills and competences through 3D design and 3D printing lessons (while gaining experience with a significant element of innovation), the products made here can also contribute to modernity, Increase efficiency, intensity and the entertainment aspect of the lesson.

What can you print for school 3D?

  • Existing teaching materials can be repaired by reprinting broken, possibly broken parts.
  • Degradable plastic can be used to make reserve copies for fragile visual material.
  • Material that is commercially available but too expensive for the school can also be printed.
  • And new accessories that did not exist before can also be created.

Let your imagination run free by planning, designing and 3D printing new visuals. If the printed product (or possibly a product family) is of interest, it may also be displayed in the common area of the school.

Examples of individual subjects:


  • two-dimensional shapes
    • Circle, triangle, rhombus (rhombus), delta shape, trapezium, etc. – ideal for teaching the shapes in the level with younger students
  • three-dimensional geometric models
    • Cube, prism, pyramid, cone, tetrahedron, sphere, etc. – it is impossible to vividly represent these bodies on a two-dimensional board, the spatial imagination of the students is often weak and must be promoted.
  • Cylindrical bodies with parabolic / hyperbolic elements, which are helpful in integral calculus
  • 6-8-10-20-sided dice and differently colored shape tiles for teaching in the field of combinatorics and probability theory
  • Logic games, puzzle models, e.g. Kleinsche bottle, tower of Hanoi
  • Chessboard with figures, 3D sudoku for general thinking training


  • Small working steam boats, containers, ice cube molds for use
    in thermodynamics lessons
  • Windmills, watermills, catapults, elevators, pumps
  • Inclined levels, stop pieces, pulleys, screws, scales for mechanics lessons
  • small objects for electrostatic experiments
  • Buzzers, caps, replacement base circuit boards for electric circuits
  • Plastic hoses that are much cheaper than glass tubes
  • Models of space equipment and tools to answer children’s questions about physics


3D printing can not only provide motivational lessons, but also
also convey positive experiences in connection with exams. Which one
Student would already decide to write a test if he
instead be allowed to classify a 3D printed animal?

  • Parts of the DNA chain in genetics lessons
  • (disassemblable) plant models
    • Flower shapes,
    • Sheets types
    • Bark,
    • Root,
    • Seed,
    • etc.
  • animal models
    • bird species
    • dinosaur
    • extinct animals
    • etc.
  • Body parts of the human
    • internal organs
    • smaller copies of expensive illustrative material can be printed and distributed at any time


  • Molecule models (for example of sulfur)
  • Atomic shell structure
  • Chemical bond within an atom
  • Comparison of graphite, diamond and graphene
    • Representation of different crystal structures
  • Tools for experimenting
    • Tweezers, pipettes, stirring rods, test tubes, measuring cups, containers, etc.


Questions about our environment are well understood with the children
discussing 3D objects made of biodegradable plastic
getting produced:

  • Model of the solar system and space instruments
    • Hubble Space Telescope, YET, LRO Pilot Rocket, Voyager
    • globe
    • World maps depicting various geological eras
      • also with moving continents
    • Europe / World Map Puzzle
      • The countries are the puzzle pieces that have to be put together
    • Mountains and volcanoes with removable parts to illustrate layers
    • Soil layers, sea layers
    • Estuary forms


  • Well-known buildings
    • the Colosseum in Rome, the building of the Hungarian Parliament, the 7 wonders of the world, etc.
  • famous battles and events at the model table
    • e.g. the Trojan horse with little soldiers
  • Village / city models
    • also as a series; depicting the lifestyle and traditional dress of certain peoples in each age or culture
  • Evolution of the vehicles
    • also suitable for representing size ratios, e.g. the difference between an ark and a seagoing vessel
  • Development of the tool
    • From the stone ax to the atomic bomb


Here the goal is clearly in the mediation of creativity and artistic
Tendencies … and also in the increase of the experience value of literary
Works that may seem boring at first glance.

  • Nymphs, Giants and Cyclopes of the Homer
    • No one has ever actually seen them – design and print them as you imagine!
  • Vampire stories, fairy tales of magicians and the like
    • all works that stimulate the imagination of the students
  • Scene models for classical works (for example the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet)

Foreign languages

In this case, the 3D prints do not contribute directly to the lesson,
However, they are ideal as a reason to talk to specific
Themes e.g. Colors can be discussed by flags.

  • Outlines, relief models of certain countries
  • Flag replicas
    • In English lessons, e.g. for England, Scotland,
      Wales, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia etc.
  • Models of known structures ● Big Ben, Stonehenge, Eiffel Tower, etc.
  • local things, dishes, people
    • for English lessons e.g. Double Decker Bus, Queen’s Guard, Queen Mother, Fish and Chips, etc.
  • Objects related to parties and celebrations
    • Halloween, New Year, Easter, etc.


  • Monuments, buildings, bridges, sculptures
  • Whole Cities (Pompeii)
  • Busts of famous painters, architects, sculptors

Our educational services

Among other things, we offer you and your students the following learning concepts:

  • Duration

    • 08:00 – 13:30


    • Basics CAD, short introduction including modeling a personalized shopping cart chip
    • Generating the shopping cart chips by means of a 3D printer
    • Short Presentation “3D Printing – History, Present, Opportunities”
    • Other possibilities in the CAD system, loft and sweep functions (freeform)
    • Modeling a cartoon character
    • Drawing the school building
    • Construction of a wind turbine, built around an existing engine
    • In addition, the “faster” students get more tasks


    • Students from grade 9
    • A PC for each student, this should have at least a dual-core processor
    • This should have a separate graphics card that is Open-GL capable. AutoDesk Fusion 360 Educational needs to be installed and running smoothly
    • Students need an email address and should have previously registered for a AutoDesk Fusion 360 school license
    • Operating system should be Windows 10, Windows 7 is in trouble

  • Duration

    • Once a week, 2 lessons each


    • See Concept A, but significantly expanded:
    • Construction of various models from several areas: furniture, jewelery, fashion, architecture, model making (boats, vehicles, helicopters)


    • Students from grade 9
    • A PC for each student, this should have at least a dual-core processor
    • This should have a separate graphics card that is Open-GL capable. AutoDesk Fusion 360 Educational needs to be installed and running smoothly
    • Students need an email address and should have previously registered for a AutoDesk Fusion 360 school license
    • Operating system should be Windows 10, Windows 7 is in trouble

The students get to know many possibilities of a CAD system. You get an introduction to the surface of the system and can draw after a few minutes their shopping cart chip and provided with their initials. The faster students can also create a second or generate models at their own discretion.

Thereafter, an explanation of the printer, both technically and on the handling related. The students are involved in the pressure of their chips and are allowed to lend a hand.

The following is a presentation of 3D printing: when was it invented, which different technologies exist, in which industries is it already used, what does 3D printing look like in 5 years, what problems can 3D printing give?

Here, too, the students are partially included in relation to their future career choices. At the same time, the students should be motivated to become interested in technology / MINT.

Thereafter, work continues on the CAD system with extended possibilities. It explains loft and sweep functions that can be used, for example, to draw arms or legs. This will create a cartoon character. Pupils get information about what to look for when modeling 3D printing – consistent foresight is encouraged.

Gradually, the skills will be expanded over the weeks. It explains the subtleties of the CAD system, the technical drawing is taught including creating 2D leads with dimensioning and creating a more complex assembly is taught. As models, various come to fruition (see content above). The individual models are discussed in class and tested for printability and optimized. Printable models are printed so students can take their models into their hands, assemble them, and get tangible success.
