The new second generation Dremel 3D printer is designed to expand opportunities for 3D printing technology in the classroom. 

Last year, Makers and educators discovered how 3D printing with the Dremel 3D Idea Builder can encourage communal problem solving and activate imaginative thinking. The new Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 printer is designed to nurture these same skills while providing even more support for integrating 3D printing into STEM instruction. 

Bringing 3D printing into the classroom has never been easier. 

The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 makes 3D Printing more accessible than ever. Advancements include USB and WiFi-enabled printing, active filament monitoring and automatic leveling. A larger building platform also enables greater flexibility in designing and scaling 3D models. 

To provide students the freedom to design 3D objects remotely, the Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 is compatible with the new Dremel 3D App for iOS and Android, available for download through the Apple App Store and Google Play on April 29th. The printer can also be used with Print Studio software, enabling students to optimize object design and make modifications based upon functionality. 

The 3D40 is also an integral part of the Dremel Dreams program, a digital ecosystem that promotes a student-driven learning environment for 3D printing. The program equips educators with a comprehensive toolkit for classroom support, including 3D-specific lesson plans and intuitive design software and hardware.
