Description

Tinyboy 3D printer is ultra-portable by being small. A one-to-one student to printer ratio can be achieved in computer classrooms to maximize the exposure of student to 3D printing technology. Students can also carry the printer around beyond classrooms to engage in their learning activities. On the other hand, it is very usable for education purpose for printing figures, toys and other creations that students like. Together with a portable device running Windows and 12V power supply, Tinyboy can print everywhere.A 3D printer usually takes 20~30 minutes to print a small object. Without TinyBoy, a teacher wanting to encourage students to print their designs into reality, would require excessive amount to be invested in multiple conventional 3D printers, not to mention the space required to house these machines.A school may purchase or build multiple Tinyboys for a classroom so that more students can enjoy the creative process. On the other hand, with a reasonable printing area, students can create a variety of models and small toys which they would enjoy.The Tinyboy 3D printer is designed for learning. To encourage the learners not just to consume, but to become Makers. Tinyboy can be assembled by students using a few simple tools. Students can operate and maintain their own machines by themselves, so they can understand the Maker culture through making.The process of making can transform education by inviting students to go beyond being consumers of education. They can be a maker of anything, moving from being directed to self-directed through the process.
