3D Printing has the potential to revolutionize the way in which products are made, bought, and sold. However, 99.9% of the world has never actually seen a 3D printer or know how to use it. Thus, there is a need to teach the world how to 3D print. To help accomplish this goal, we recently developed and launched a 3D Printing Specialization via Coursea. The courses are developed in a unique academic/industry collaboration with Autodesk and Ultimaker as lead partners, and platforms such as Shapeways and 3D Hubs as fulfillment partners. In less than 6 months, over 10,000 learners have enrolled in this specialization. During this presentation, we will discuss the origin and impact of this specialization and share insights about what we have learned thus far about the global market for 3D Printing education and how others can share our vision for bringing 3D Printing to the world.
