The UK economy is showing signs of improvement, as the country begins to ease out of lockdowns, job vacancies are starting to re-open, more companies are returning to business. The key question lies in education.

With September and a new term looming: what does teaching look like now?

Some subjects require practical teaching and assessment – for example, engineering, art and design. Educators must be able to integrate technology with their expertise, to foster an interactive and supportive learning environment.
With the importance of iteration throughout the design process, teaching resilience and preparing for the 21st Century workplace, 3D Printing enables students to prototype, test and refine ideas quickly.

But, how does this work remotely?

In today’s blog, we’ll go over solutions for cloud-based management systems from industry-leading technology brands. 

1.   RaiseCloud

This software by Raise3D allows remote slicing and printing through users’ Print Farm. Users can oversee filament consumption, through visual monitoring of prints through a cloud interface.
