K-12 drives demand for 3-D printers
from District Administration Magazine
Analysts expect 3-D printer shipments to double worldwide to nearly 496,500 units in 2016 — in large part due to demand from K12 schools and universities, according to a new report. 3-D printers — devices that create physical objects from digital plans — are more common in STEM classes than in people's homes, despite manufacturers' initial expectations for the machines. Schools and universities are the primary market drivers for consumer 3-D printers costing under $2,500, according to a September report from Gartner Inc., an independent technology research company.
