In recent years, more and more news about the use of 3D printing technology in the field of education has been made. With the development of intelligent manufacturing step by step, new information technology, control technology, material technology, etc. are continuously applied to the manufacturing field, and 3D printing technology will also be pushed to a higher level. The development of 3D printing technology will reflect the trend of precision, intelligence, generalization and convenience. “Any technology tends to create a new human environment,” and 3D printing technology will also play an active role in education. 3D printing will subvert the traditional education model. It turns out that some students who do not perform well in traditional education are mainly because the courses they learn are too theoretical and have no interest. The abstract concept of memorization allows students to pass the exam, but after the exam is very Forgetting it, 3D printers can make a boring course come alive. It is a learning style that has both visual and tactile sensibility. It is very attractive. In tactile learning, students are not simply on the blackboard or display. Looking at words or graphics, but grasping the three-dimensional model of the core concept through their sense of touch, this can absorb and digest knowledge so that students no longer forget the lessons they have learned. The famous British teacher Dave White once said: If you can grasp the imagination of students, you can catch their attention.
The domestic education industry has begun to popularize 3D printing education. Only by advancing with the times can we make breakthroughs. In the past two or three years, more and more schools and even national units in China have begun to explore the application of emerging technologies in the field of education, and 3D printing technology bears the brunt. In recent years, many schools have explored innovative teaching models to integrate 3D printing systems with teaching systems. On the one hand, 3D printers can improve students' skills in mastering technology and improve their scientific and technological literacy. On the other hand, the three-dimensional model printed by the 3D printer significantly improves the design and creativity of students. Currently the most common applications in teaching are SLA and FDM 3D printing technology. 3D printing technology is applied to the problems that need to be solved in the field of education. How to give full play to the characteristics and advantages of new technologies, how to embody and enhance its value through the application of technology in education? Popularization and promotion of 1.3D printing At present, most 3D printers are relatively expensive. Although some projects have actively promoted the educational application of 3D printers, on the whole, the popularity of 3D printers in schools still needs a process. At the same time, there are still gaps in the training and promotion of 3D printing technology in China compared with other countries. It is necessary to further promote the learning of new technologies. This requires the joint efforts of the education administrative departments, enterprises and schools. 2. Requirements for teachers Teachers play an important role in the educational application of 3D printing. On the one hand, the teacher himself is a user of 3D printing, and can create a personalized teaching model through 3D printing; on the other hand, the teacher should carry out the teaching design of the 3D printing course application to help and guide the students to carry out learning activities. Therefore, this will put forward higher requirements for teachers. Teachers need to learn and improve from the aspects of technology and instructional design, and do a good job as a leader. 3. Education and Teaching Reform At present, the global education field is undergoing revolutionary changes. The development of 3D printing and large-scale online learning courses will have a lasting and profound impact on education. Therefore, we need to pay attention to and participate in the latest industrial revolution and educational reform, and strengthen the cultivation of innovative talents. This is the fundamental guarantee for us to maintain our advanced position in the world competition in the future. 3D printing is applied to the teaching class, and the subject experience obtained by the students is more realistic and intuitive. They are really involved in all aspects of teaching, both as a problem proponent and as a problem solver. Teachers are more like their collaborators, growing up with the students in the process of inquiry. It is conceivable that such education does not just cultivate students' innovative spirit and improve students' practical ability. It seems that with the development of technology and economy, the entry of 3D printers into the classroom must be the general trend.
In the future, 3D printing technology will continue to showcase the strong thinking of students in the education industry, and the ability to accept new things. The school offers a "learning by doing" course that integrates design and 3D printing. Many abstract concepts have become interesting lessons by allowing students to design small circuits and small devices made up of 3D printing components. 3D printers will inspire a new generation of students to devote themselves to science, mathematics, engineering and design, and create a group of student engineers. . The 3D printer enters the classroom, which enables students to train in their innovative ability and hands-on practical ability. Turning students' creativity and imagination into reality will greatly develop students' ability to start and brain, thus realizing the transformation of school training methods. Students can complete the design in front of the computer and then complete the production through a 3D printer, allowing the creation of the virtual world to seamlessly connect with the real world. I believe that in the near future, more and more schools will introduce 3D printers to help students learn and innovate.
