Proven 3D design and 3D printing tools for Teaching and Learning
Technology & Process Solutions
Javelin's SOLIDWORKS integrated 3D software, curriculum, and lessons make design development easy to learn, easy to teach, and exciting to use.
Our education industry technology is designed for:
Software for Researchers
The SOLIDWORKS Research License gives researchers the latest in SOLIDWORKS design and science engineering technology, while connecting them with other users.
Software for Educators
Featuring software plus a full curriculum and interactive courseware, SOLIDWORKS® Education Edition is an all-inclusive resource for teaching 3D mechanical CAD, electrical CAD, design validation (FEA/CFD), and communication.
Software for Students
With SOLIDWORKS skills, students have a clear advantage in engineering and industrial design job markets. The easy-to-use SOLIDWORKS Student Edition lets students sharpen their skills outside the classroom as they learn to design better products.
Additive Manufacturing Solutions
Stratasys 3D Printers empower educators to bring innovative technology into the classroom which inspires students to reach new levels of thinking.
Our additive solutions allows educators to:
Provide a Hands-on Experience
Using 3D printing is an exciting alternative to virtual modeling because students can actually see, hold and interact with their projects.
Offer STEAM Curriculum
An excellent match for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) curriculum projects at associate, undergraduate and graduate levels. Educators can increase engagement with exciting classroom projects.
Provide Industry Experience
The same 3D Printers in use at academic and technical institutions are also used by your students’ future employers, like major manufacturers Magna, Honda, and Boeing.

Additive Manufacturing Applications
How do educators use 3D printers?
Production End-use Parts
Stratasys 3D Printers are ideal for low production runs as they build the most durable, stable, repeatable on-demand end-use parts in the industry
Concept modeling with a Stratasys 3D printer allows you to prove out your concept ideas as a one-off finished product within hours or days.
Why Stratasys 3D Printing for Education?
Recommended Education Machine
Smarter Prototyping for the classroom
The Stratasys F123 series offers educators new and improved features to save time and material. Incredible ease of use with both the hardware and the software means students don’t need special 3D printing expertise.
Super quiet and classroom friendly. Reliable, consistent 3D printing with material made from a renewable resource ensures less waste.
Economic 3D Printing
Many Stratasys 3D printers feature fast-draft mode to produce design concepts quickly and economically. Students can print twice as fast as standard build mode while consuming just a third of the material on average. For even more efficiency and savings, choose PLA. A thermoplastic made from renewable resources.
Easy for educators and students
Stratasys 3D printers are easy to operate and maintain for all experience levels. Minimal setup means you can plug and play to start 3D printing. The Stratasys 3D printers are classroom-ready. Auto-calibration ensures you spend less time troubleshooting and more time 3D printing. Fast and easy material swaps streamline the transition time between projects, so nothing slows you down.
More Ways to Make
The Stratasys 3D printers offer a range of strength and layer resolution options to suit almost any learning application. 3D printers offer different materials, along with an easy-to-remove soluble support.
Its ability to accurately reproduce virtually any shape in real production plastics both inspires creativity and encourages problem solving. The versatility of 3D printing effortlessly adapts to many different classroom and student needs.
Featured Case Study
3D Printing Helps Students Create the Missing Piece
Toronto’s York University School of Engineering 3D print their prototypes and realize a 30 to 50% cost saving over traditional CNC prototyping.
Having a 3D printer in their lab has inspired a new way of approaching projects for students.
