This video was developed and kindly shared by CREATE Education Ambassador Professor Tim Minshall, Head of the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. The video provides a perfect introduction for students of all ages into 3D printing and how it compares to traditional ways of making things. It provides a simple overview of the 3D printing process and shows examples how 3D printing is being used across society.

In The Classroom

This video is a perfect resource to use in the very first lesson introducing students to 3D printing as it puts the additive manufacturing process into context alongside other more familiar manufacturing techniques. It presents the technology and the process in a very simple way with child friendly animations and examples so it can be used with children young and old and even adult learners.
