We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
I teach a course called Modular Technology to 8th grade students. It is an essentially a Makers Space that I have been running for more than 20 years now. I have more than 30 modular areas that students can pick from. I have used grants to land three 3D printers, A replicator 2x, 2 and my new baby is a printrbot simple. I am not a master of any software, but have always been able to pick tools up and put them to use. I love experimenting and lean towards free tools so that my students can afford them at home as well.
Printers: MakerBot Replicator 2X
Design Programs: Sketchup, MeshMixer, OpenSCAD, Thingiverse Customizer
