What would you create with a Creality Ender-3 V2 3D printer? Or perhaps it’s not you who would benefit by having one in your home; this might be great for the kids and family activities. Also, now that school is back in, a 3D printer might be just the thing for students to take their school projects to an A+ level of excellence. Ponder for a few minutes about the possibilities, read this article for some inspiration, then learn how you can enter for a chance to win an industry leading Creality 3D Printer.
Back to school season is a perfect time for learning 3D printing
Who is 3D printing for? Everyone is the best answer, but especially anyone who wants to learn and be creative. Many professions are using them to quickly create models related to their work. For example, architects may iterate designs for a new building by printing them. Engineers too, can see the results of scaled-down versions of their designs in minutes using a 3D printer. And there are many entrepreneurs selling their 3D creations online for practical home applications or for hobbyists.
Crafts and hobbies are one of my favourite applications of this relatively new technology. Imagine having an exact replica of Han Solo’s blaster or Worf’s Bat’leth. There are thousands of videos online showing how to get started.
How hard is it to use an Ender-3 V2 3D printer
Obviously printing 3D objects is not as simple as printing on paper. But there are some similarities. You’ll need a computer to send files to the printer in both cases. You’ll also need to have a complete project ready to go before it can be printed. Printing in 3D requires you to put in the printing medium (and there are a few types), and like regular printing, the print material is sold in cartridges. So you already understand the basics of creating a 3D printed object.
You can learn more about 3D printing and about the 3D printer we are giving away in this contest, by reading Brad Moon’s overview article here on the blog. And there are tons of useful videos online and free to download files to help with setting up your printer setup and creating masterpieces. You and your children will soon be printing for school, for work, and for fun.
