The Pulse 3D printer is a high quality 3D printer based on the Prusa i3, and designed to meet the needs of every maker—including young makers! The Pulse EDU 3D Printer - Education Bundle is a fantastic, affordable option for educators who want to introduce their students to the constantly expanding world of 3D printing. With the Pulse EDU, you can print using beginner-friendly PLA filament as well as other materials such as ABS, TPE, NylonX and more. Every Pulse 3D printer comes standard with automatic bed leveling and a heated print bed for a streamlined 3D printing experience. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
