3D printing for teachers 

I-Form is keen to inspire the next generation of manufacturing talent to join our evolving industry, to help address the growing skills shortage in advanced manufacturing. Teachers, meanwhile, are keen to learn more about new technologies, integrate them into the classroom and guide their students along their future career paths.
