Apart from commercial applications, colleges and universities around the world are increasingly adopting 3D printing to put physical objects into the hands of the students who conceived them, bringing the design education process to its logical conclusion. 3D printing technology has given new great ways to teach engineering, medical, architecture, chemistry and fine arts. By rapidly transforming ideas into real-world objects firmly engages developing minds while exposing them to advance technologies that will propel their careers. Students can further use physical examples of the design work to make a powerful impression during campus recruitment.

Z Corporation 3D printers are easy to install and operate in any standard office or lab environment. With just few hours of training, you can single- handedly operate a Z Corporation 3D Printer. There is no need for a dedicated operator. Each Z Corporation 3D printing system is designed for use by multiple operators with limited expertise, which enhances accessibility to the equipment within your organization.
