Abstract

3D printing is an increasingly popular technology, finding practical applications in many sectors. In addition to technical uses, the use of 3D printing as a support tool in education is also spreading. Benefits include greater student involvement, the ability to visualize and better understand theoretical concepts, the integration of practical and theoretical skills. The areas of employment are many, from cultural heritage to medicine, from science to mechanics. However, to use this technology successfully, trainers need to have (or acquire) specific skills and competences. The current document intends to present the results of a study conducted in the framework of the European project “3D Printing in VET” on the current uses of 3D printing in education and on the point of view of the sector's stakeholders on this topic.
