3D print­ers for schools

The Australian Education Reporter - - STEM FOCUS -

GILKING School Sup­plies has been the num­ber one provider of de­sign and tech­nol­ogy sup­plies to Aus­tralian schools since 1996.

The com­pany has de­liv­ered 3D print­ers and spe­cialty fil­a­ments to schools for over five years, with more than 8000 items avail­able for ship­ping Aus­tralia-wide.

Gilking sup­plies the Flash­forge range of 3D print­ers, in­clud­ing the new In­ven­tor 3D printer line, a desk­top printer specif­i­cally geared to­wards ed­u­ca­tional use.

The com­pany also ex­clu­sively sup­plies the 3D In­dus­tries (3DI) 3D print­ers which are de­signed and man­u­fac­tured in Aus­tralia.

The 3DI print­ers have large bed sizes and come with the op­tion for a be­spoke printer to be de­signed and built to cus­tom re­quire­ments.

Sev­eral lo­cally de­vel­oped fea­tures in­clude a strong box frame us­ing 25mm RHS steel, heavy duty gantries, an ad­justable ex­truder, a hot end de­signed by 3D In­dus­tries, a high ef­fi­ciency bed heater, printer con­trol at the printer front panel, and an ef­fec­tive frame mounted an­chor point/fil­a­ment cleaner us­ing sponge re­fills.

The print­ers have a two-year war­ranty and unique anti-clog­ging fea­tures to avoid blocked noz­zles, with a free re­place­ment hot end if the noz­zle ever blocks.

Print­ing flex­i­ble and very soft fil­a­ments can be chal­leng­ing and of­ten im­pos­si­ble for many print­ers but Aus­tralian 3D In­dus­tries 3D print­ers pro­duce top qual­ity re­sults and are avail­able only at Gilking School Sup­plies.

3D print­ing con­sum­ables

Gilking School Sup­plies also car­ries a full range of 3D printer con­sum­ables for ev­ery type of 3D printer with a full range of colours for both stan­dard PLA and ABS fil­a­ments.

A com­pre­hen­sive range of spe­cial­ity 3D fil­a­ments in­cludes me­tal such as stain­less, bronze, cop­per, alu­minium, mag­netic iron fil­a­ments, car­bon fi­bre, con­duc­tive or brick type fil­a­ments, as well as flex­i­ble rub­ber-like fil­a­ments in a range of colours, and light chang­ing glow-in-the-dark fil­a­ments which are pop­u­lar nov­elty items.
