With Education-ready 3D Printers that come with curriculum tools, lesson plans and stellar support, CDI continues to revolutionize learning.
Chicago, IL (April 27, 2016) – CDI, one of North America’s leading providers of education-ready technology solutions, has partnered with Bosch and announced the release of 3D printers designed specifically for K-12 classrooms. The 3D printers are the newest addition to CDI’s well established lineup of hardware and software products built exclusively for education.
The company’s VP of Purchasing, Mr. Fred Hastings said: “CDI continues to add innovative technology to its line card with the goal to help educators teach in new and more engaging ways. Each year, we work with over 4,000 school districts and other educational institutions in the United States. In the last 12 months the one product they consistently inquired about was 3D printers. We are pleased to meet their needs with a new, integrated 3D printing solution.”
Manufactured by Dremel, a subsidiary of Bosch, CDI’s newest product line, the Dremel 3D Idea Builder is much more than a 3D printer. Similar to CDI’s Chromebooks, Notebooks and Tablets, it is a comprehensive learning ecosystem. It delivers 3D printing integrated with a specifically designed curriculum, customizable lesson plans and activities.

CDI’s new 3D printing system is designed to satisfy children’s natural curiosity to explore and create. Dremel has not just designed a product, but a unique learning experience. Students are immersed into an innovative environment and engaged to think critically, be creative, collaborate and build real objects.
