Teaser Hero - wide angle - mobile

SKETCH Classroom is built to be the complete 3D printing classroom setup with an ideal student-to-printer ratio that maximizes students’ access and teachers’ success in the classroom

MakerBot is excited to announce the launch of the MakerBot SKETCH Classroom™ designed to be the most reliable 3D printing setup for the classroom, giving students more access to 3D printing and setting up teachers for success. The SKETCH Classroom goes beyond the hardware and incorporates MakerBot’s complete education ecosystem, providing educators and students with the tools and resources they need to succeed.

Teachers are facing significant challenges in preparing students for a rapidly changing job market. Skill sets such as problem-solving and design thinking are high in demand; however, many students today lack those skills. 3D printing can be used to teach critical thinking, but there is a sharp learning curve to using 3D printing in the classroom successfully. Teachers and students need to learn to use the 3D printer, integrate the technology into their curriculum and manage 3D printing resources in the classroom. In addition, the challenging printer-to-student ratio in a classroom requires a different workflow setup for an effective deployment.

The SKETCH Classroom addresses the challenges of 3D printing in the classroom with a solution that includes interactive certification courses for both teachers and students that trains them on how to use the MakerBot SKETCH 3D printer, create and implement engaging curriculum, and teach design thinking and problem-solving with 3D printing.

The SKETCH Classroom offers a unique workflow solution that addresses the printer-to-student ratio challenge and provides the best setup for effective deployment. The SKETCH firmware and print management software are natively connected to MakerBot Cloud™ platform and incorporate a full suite of 3D printing applications. The SKETCH Classroom software suite provides print design, preparation, and management as a single solution out of the box. Students are able to submit their designs via MakerBot Cloud through their MakerBot account on my.makerbot.com, and teachers can seamlessly manage, queue up and monitor their students’ 3D printing projects. This is designed to be the best 3D printing setup for the classroom, making 3D printing more accessible to students, and setting educators up for 3D printing success.

“With SKETCH, we are changing the way 3D printing is used in schools and advancing the possibilities of learning to boost student innovation. We believe that SKETCH Classroom is the best 3D printing setup for the classroom, with an ideal student-to-printer ratio, making 3D printing more accessible to students, and setting educators up for 3D printing success,” said Nadav Goshen, CEO, MakerBot.

With its 3D printers in over 7,000+ schools across North America alone, MakerBot is one of the leading providers of 3D printing solutions for education. MakerBot’s education ecosystem is the most comprehensive on the market, providing thousands of educators with the tools and resources they need to successfully integrate 3D printing in their curricula.

SKETCH is easy to use and set up, and does not require tinkering, allowing teachers to spend more time integrating 3D printing within classroom learning. With a built-in particulate filter and enclosed chamber, the MakerBot SKETCH Classroom is safe to use in the classroom. Additionally, SKETCH is UL-Certified. MakerBot has tested the SKETCH 3D printer for over 46,000 hours for system reliability, subsystem, and print quality testing.

Full MakerBot Cloud integrations and additional features are planned for the coming months. SKETCH Classroom is expected to begin shipping on February 17, 2020 in North America, with availability in other regions shortly thereafter.

Lotmaxx launches new SC-10 Shark on Kickstarter

Imagine a desktop 3D printer that can print faster than average, featuring multiple functions such as auto leveling, laser engraving and bicolor printing using simple add-ons. Plus build quality with premium materials, sleek and ergonomic design.

Now stop imagining. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is a reality.  

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is our latest and first-ever crowdfunded desktop 3D printer and we chose to launch on Kickstarter for a reason. Kickstarter is always the base of unlimited creativity. Helping to bring the creative projects to life, Kickstarter would be the proven bridge between LOTMAXX and the 3D printing community by bringing us together.

We believe that 3D printing has unlimited potential, and we’re only just at the beginning of this emerging industry. 3D printing technology is penetrating widely and deeply across industrial, makers and consumer sectors. It’s by launching on Kickstarter and connecting LOTMAXX with backers, getting feedback and conducting discussion that we can make further progress on development of 3D printing.

We’re just getting started and your opinions matter to us. 

Establishing ourselves in 2018, LOTMAXX is a cutting-edge technology company specializing in 3D printing. Gathered with more than 100 professionals, experienced developers and engineers from 3D printing, tablet computer and machine manufacturing industries, we’ve harnessed the great capability of design, research and production of 3D printing.

We want to vitalize the industry with our innovation. By breaking further ground in 3D printing technology, we managed to bring LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK to Kickstarter. It’s printing faster, it’s more than the average desktop 3D printer.

It’s beyond your imagination.

Packing the Aeolus Heat Dissipation system (AHDS) and S Move System (SMS), LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK has effectively boosted the print speed and successfully saved up to 30% average print time*. 

*Source: stats from LOTMAXX lab.   

S Move System

LOTMAXX SC-10 stays cool while printing, thanks to the unique and signature design of its modular nozzles.  The Aeolus Heat Dissipation system (AHDS) is a highly efficient  dissipation system with its uniquely developed four-fan design. This cools the nozzle from all angles, increasing the efficiency of heat dissipation by 42%*(measured in LOTMAXX lab) without compromising sprinting quality and print speed. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK has three speed modes available: normal, middle, and fast speed, to match your preference and need. Combining the high-speed motor, LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is a powerhouse that guarantees unparalleled speed as well as the stability.     

The four-fan structure
Printing faster

Auto leveling, laser engraving and bicolor printing, your call. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is the whole package. No need to recode and no further adjustment is required, plug and play, it’s just that easy!  

There are 2 colors of SC-10 Shark(Deep Purple/Space Gray)

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK comes with optional automatic bed leveling feature. The ultra-precise technology allows for 0.1mm accuracy. While the unleveled bed might cause nozzle clogging, scratch marks and poor adhesion, the auto leveling is one of the most important benefits that LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK can offer to the quality of your prints. Just tap the touch screen to activate the auto leveling interface, the inductive sensor will probe the heated bed. It precisely measures the print surface’s tilt, freeing you from the time-consuming and tricky manual process. Regardless of whether you are a newcomer or a skilled maker, you can enjoy a hassle-free auto leveling with SHARK!

Note: LOTMAXX procures 3D touch & BL touch from suppliers.

Auto-leveling
The 3D Touch

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK supports an optional 1.6 W laser engraving and allows you to engrave with a wide variety of materials like wood, plastic, leather, PVC, paper and resin. The interchangeable module is extremely easy to apply on. Plug and engrave, simply attach the laser engraver module next to the printhead and you’re ready to witness creativity turning into reality.  

Ever so often, it’s color making the artwork unique and special. While most of the 3D printers come with just one nozzle, LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK offers optional dual color print head tier. Besides the basic option, you may choose a different package that comes with two extruders and one nozzle. Expand the possibility and upgrade your artwork, why not?

We have one of their original SC-10 printers and are very impressed with it. We are backers of the new SC-10 Shark on kickstarter. We are very eager to receive the new printer and put it through its’ paces.
