All components installed on each printer are precision machined, thoroughly tested, and finely honed so you can achieve high quality 3D printing results on a limited budget.

Learning Possibilities Enhanced

Tactile learning has never been more accessible than through 3D printing and modeling. Ideas that are typically understood through text and images in a textbook can now be comprehended by recreating them in three-dimensional space. Take lessons a step further by having students play a more active role in the learning process by assigning students the task to recreate concepts or even reimagine them through 3D modeling. Imagination is the only limit—a limit that young minds prove to excel at surpassing when given the opportunity. The best part? Students have their hard work materialized right before their eyes in real time on a 3D printer.

Outstanding Value

MatterHackers loves our educators, so we've put together a version of our popular Pulse 3D printer (a top pick in Make: Magazine's 2018 3D Printer Issue) with all the upgrades you need, and a classroom-friendly discount. We've even bundled in extras like 3 spools of PLA, and 7 days of unlimited access to PrintLab Online 3D Printing Curriculum and Certification portal. This bundle is designed to maximize integrating 3D printing into education at a reduced, economical cost.

Streamlined for Success

From start to finish, the production process of the Pulse is fine-tuned to produce a 3D printer that makes successful 3D printing easy. The Pulse Pros at MatterHackers attentively construct the hardware and carefully install all the necessary software unique to the Pulse EDU’s design. We handle the complicated care into constructing the Pulse so you can easily reap the successful 3D printing benefits.

Silent, Seamless Workflow

Pulse is the quietest 3D printer on the market, making it the perfect desktop companion to run in the background without causing any irritating auditory distractions. Specific components have been chosen and designed to provide an incredibly quiet experience while the 3D printer produces your model. Sound dampers for the motors and rubber feet for the printer combat sound vibration, and the noticeable reduction in noise is amazing.

Easily Creatively Stimulate Education

With 3D printing, finding new ways to creatively stimulate the curriculum is even easier. Change up the textbooks and worksheets routine by adding a project-based element element to any subject! Have students 3D model topics you are learning using free modeling software that’s available everywhere and bring them to life using the Pulse EDU 3D printer. Students who prefer visual or tactile learning will thrive with this additional method of teaching as they get a better sense of concepts using 3D objects that they can hold and observe right before their eyes. Need a little guidance on how and where to start using 3D printing in the classroom? Use the 7 day trial of PrintLab’s Classroom we include with every bundle to get a taste of just how much 3D printing can positively and creatively change the way students comprehend concepts. Also, click here to check out our articles under "Education" where you can see how other educators are using 3D Printing in their learning environment!

Provide a new spin to some old project ideas, all while keeping the same spirit of creativity.

Investing in Future Makers

Investing in the next generation of young, creative minds should not be a heavy financial cost that schools carry alone. Enter the Pulse EDU 3D Printer for Education—a bundle created specifically for educators to purchase quality 3D printing products and resources at a price closer to their budget. It's no surprise that 3D printing is gaining traction in schools given the real-world applications we now see in the news every day. 3D printing and design skills are crucial to landing careers in medicine, video games, architecture, product development, film and TV production, aerospace, automotive, and more. We understand that 3D printing can come with an overwhelming cost at face value which is why we want to share as much of the cost as we can in investing in future makers. Someday 3D printing will be as necessary as 2D printing currently is and we believe no student should miss out expanding their education with this vital skill due to cost.

Using specific industry-leading components, methods and features, the Pulse Pros at MatterHackers construct a truly reliable 3D printer. Each of the components below are assembled, tested, and calibrated on every Pulse when it arrives to you.

LayerLock MagBase
When printing large parts, there is a huge advantage to having a build plate that can be removed and flexed to easily remove the print off of the bed. LayerLock MagBase 9” x 10” ensures part removal is super easy and saves you time and effort. Switch between different bed surfaces like BuildTak, Garolite, PEI, Polypropylene and more. This comes with a sheet of Garolite installed on the build plate.
Heated Bed
Heated Bed
Choose from a wide variety of materials to print with on the Pulse EDU 3D printer's heated bed. The bed has a pre-installed LayerLock MagBase installed, making it incredibly easy for prints of various filaments to stick during printing and easy to remove once completed. We compile the best quality components for your print bed so you can jumpstart on successful 3D printing.
Filament Runout Sensor
Filament Runout Sensor
The Filament Runout Sensor constantly monitors filament to ensure successful printing. Run out of filament mid-print? Our Sensor will alert MatterControl to pause your print session. This will allow you to reload filament and seamlessly continue printing. Rest easy knowing incomplete print results will drastically reduce with the Filament Runout Sensor that comes stock in the Pulse EDU.
Viki 2 LCD Screen
Deluxe Hi-Res LCD Screen
The Deluxe Hi-Res LCD Screen offers untethered printing on top of the Pulse’s USB connectivity.
