MakerBot partners with Google for Education to deliver an even more powerful 3D printing experience for teachers and students.
With Google for Education, MakerBot now brings you access to Google Classrooms through MakerBot Cloud. Through the integration, teachers and students can easily connect to MakerBot Cloud, MakerBot Print, and their MakerBot account by using their Google credentials to log in with one click.
The MakerBot Cloud integration with Google For Education provides teachers with familiar tools as they get started with 3D printing with their students. Educators can share their printer queue directly to their Google Classroom, and students can submit their 3D print projects to MakerBot Cloud to be approved by their teachers for printing. Teachers can also save and organize their students’ design files to Google Drive.
As schools shift to adapt to a changing environment, the ability to collaborate with diverse learning environments is more important than ever. MakerBot Cloud allows users from anywhere in the world to access their MakerBot printers at any time.
One of the key challenges that teachers face when using 3D printers as a learning tool is how to best manage student submissions and print files. Googlee Classrooms and MakerBot Cloud™ now enables educators to easily share, approve, queue, and print directly to MakerBot 3D printers. Whether they’re at home or in the classroom, teachers can access their students’ print submissions through MakerBot Cloud.
MakerBot Cloud can be used across all current MakerBot 3D printers, if you're getting started with 3D printing we recommend starting off with the MakerBot SKETCH Classroom to fulfill your classroom needs.
To start using MakerBot Cloud, you can click on our how-to guide or check out our recent webinar where we went over the benefits of having the ability to connect your printer to the cloud, monitor your prints remotely and set-up student printing queues without students having to create accounts.
