Learnbylayers.com is an ambitious project trying to gather an educational content for teaching skillsets required for 3D printing. As it is a learning platform that can be accessed online from anywhere in the world, it solves one of the biggest bottlenecks in the educational sector, making it easy for teachers to facilitate learning courses. 3D printing requires a specific skillsets that are not easy to come by and collecting these into a format that is easy to follow and accessible by anyone is a way forward to accelerate the adoption of 3d printing as a tool in product design and prototyping.
Philip Cotton gathered some great case studies how schools in UK are adopting this tool today.
