NY, US, 16th Dec 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, Tech Manufacturer 3DG8’s production-boosting Kickstarter goes live on Today. The company has created “LilM8,” a compact and lightweight 3D printer model designed specifically for kids and teens. With the product well beyond its prototyping phase, 3DG8 has already equipped 80 schools around the world with their own Lil M8. The Kickstarter aims to raise $40,000 that will expand production and provide printers to an additional 200+ schools.
Weighing in at just under seven pounds, the printer provides the perfect classroom solution for students eager to experiment with technology, problem-solving, and highly innovative design projects. The printer has shown itself to be a safe, affordable, and highly durable model—with seven of the 80 units already clocking 3,000 hours of use without any breakdowns.
The founders of 3DG8 believe that hands-on academics lead to more engaged students and that certain tech advancements excite the classroom in ways where textbooks come up short. Teachers enrich their lessons with tangible objects related to the subject at hand, while kids get to flex their creativity and design instincts by producing models and art pieces that champion self-expression and get them thinking in new directions.
Beyond these educational and imaginative uses, printer placement offers significant practical application. With technology trending toward the “fifth industrial revolution,” skilled 3D print designer technicians are quickly becoming a valuable commodity in the workforce. Just as typing proficiency and internet skills have been key educational priorities over the previous few decades, today’s students are preparing to excel in a world where machine programming are in high demand.
