The file then prints on the 3D printer layer by layer to form a model of the designed object. “The 3D printers will encourage a fun and exciting learning environment and inspire skills needed to help our students build their prototypes and models for their inventions and or business ideas,” said Marilyn Kipp, Marketplace for Kids, executive director.   3D printing was  introduced many years ago, but has recently gained an abundance of interest around the world as the printers become more advanced and easier to use. “3D printing is a common practice in several industries, specifically in engineering.
