For the 2nd time this year, Dremel has reaffirmed its dedication to growing STEM education and 3D printing opportunities in the classroom. After launching Dremel Dreams in February, a digital ecosystem that provides educators with 3D printing lesson plans, software, and equipment, the tool assembling company has at present released the Dremel Idea Builder 3D40, the 2nd generation of its plug-and-play, classroom-friendly 3D printing device.

Today’s evolving workforce is increasingly in require of STEM-educated pros, that is, skilled thinkers in the areas of science, innovation, engineering and mathematics. Sat any timeal 3D printing industry leaders, that include Stratasys, XYZPrinting, YSoft be3D, Ultimanufacturer and additional have responded by developing either effortless and safe 3D printing device models, or 3D printing software and lesson plans tailored to complement existing curriculums.
Thanks to its Idea Builder, a line of low-cost, entry-level and reliable computer desktop 3D printing devices, Dremel has been at the forefront of this movement, effectively promoting 3D printing and STEM education.

The Idea Builder 3D40 2.0 has thus been configured with key improvements that can manufacture it simpler than at any time to implement into classrooms, allowing educators to experiment with a innovation that “encourages communal problem solving and activates imaginative thinking,” said the company.
First and foremost, the Idea Builder 3D40 showcases new software and USB and WiFi-enabled 3D printing. As of May, it can in addition be compatible with the new Dremel 3D iOS and Android apps, providing students and teachers the freedom to create and 3D print objects remotely. Additionally, the 3D printing device can be utilized with Print Studio software, that optimizes object create based on functionality—a vrey useful showcase for learning-based assembling.
The new Idea Builder in addition showcases active filament monitoring, a maintenance-free extruder, assistive levelling, and a sizeabler assembling platform for greater flexibility in createing and scaling 3D models.

“As classrooms go on to approach education through hands-on learning, the advancements we’ve created to the Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 provide an unprecedented experience with 3D printing innovation,” said George Velez, manager of Dremel 3D Education. “We wanted to donate educators and students the capacity to engage with 3D printing in a limitless capacity.”
“I rely on the Dremel 3D Idea Builder to donate my students the capacity to create, test, print and modify high-quality product models,” said Matt Schultz, a innovation and engineering instructor at Lakeview Technology Academy in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. “The speed and durcapacity of the Dremel 3D printing system helps create significant problem-solving skills, where students have the opportunity to reflect upon product function and create multiple iterations of a prototype.”

Dremel has created two designs of the Idea Builder 3D40: the retail design (3D40-01) comes with one Flash Drive with Print Studio software, create tape, and a few environmentally friendly PLA filament. As for the EDU design (3D40-EDU), it can include a USB loaded with a 3D-specific curriculum, two create plates, extra create tape, and four full spools of filament in a variety of colors. Both models are safety-conscious, and createed for immediate, out-of-the-box use.
Today, the retail design of the Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 2.0 is on the market for pre-order at the price of $1,299, with full availcapacity scheduled for June.
