Get your very own 3D Printer in order to complete a Digital Badge while observing social distancing protocols.  Groups can also purchase a printer together and share while learning in a small “education pod”.   This 3D Printer option lets you make progress towards badge completion or the path to a new high-demand career while schools and colleges are closed.

Our recommendations for low-cost printers:
MatterHackers Pulse 3D Printer
MatterHackers Creality 3D Printer

If you’re looking for something more robust and sophisticated, especially if you’re trying to up-skill for a new career, we recommend:
MatterHackers Ultimaker 3D Printer

NOTE:  3D Printer is required for hands-on Fundamentals of FDM 3D Printing digital badge course.  If you don’t have access to one, you will have to source a machine yourself in order to create your portfolio’s project.
