3D Printed Education

That’s all folks!

3D Printed Education

Everything comes to an end… and it’s soon to be goodbye from me on this site. Having retired from teaching in 2018 things have slowed down on this site. I am no longer able to post about the work done in 3D printing by my own and other students, and I am no longer developing new teaching and learning projects and resources. In addition the GCSE and A’Level qualifications have changed so significantly that many of the resources I produced and published are no longer all that relevant.

3D printing for “proof of concept”
