dc.description.abstract This paper investigates recent developments in low-cost 3D printing and offers a case study on the practicalities of commissioning a low-cost, kit based 3D printer. It discusses a range of practical considerations and possibilities on how it can assist in reconnecting students to making in an educational setting. The promise of digitally printed parts and models from an affordable desktop machine has many perceived advantages in complementing the more established 3D printing and traditional methods of model making. In addition, low-cost 3D printers have opened up new making possibilities for a wider community of non-professional designers and makers. In design education settings the integration of low-cost 3D printers can offer new making opportunities earlier in the design process by integrating with existing digital design tools. en_US
