UPDATE: Discount has been increased to 15% off for registered students and faculty. Please see our Education Program page for additional updates.
Today we have launched the first stage of the Shapeways Educational Program with an awesome 10% discount on 3D printing for all students and educators with a Shapeways account registered with an .edu email address.
This is our first step at helping students and educators have better access to high quality 3D printing through Shapeways. We will be rolling out more features as part of the Shapeways Education Program so that everyone from elementary to post graduate students can use 3D printing to help them learn, understand and communicate their ideas whether they be technical, artistic or conceptual.
Register for the 10% discount on all 3D printing by visiting the Shapeways Education page and activating your email. The 10% discount will automatically be applied at checkout unless you have another discount code you wish to enter. You can still use Shapeways credit and your student discount at the same time.
We will continuously monitor and review the educational discount so that we can optimize it to students needs which may involve a change in the terms under which we offer the discount. We will keep all of those registered for the education discount updated on any changes and/or additions to the program. We will also work to include other educational institutions that do not have an .edu domain for their emails in the near future.
Please pass on the details of the discount to your friends, fellow students and teachers, the more people that are registered and use the educational discount, the more incentive there is for Shapeways to develop the educational program further.
If you have any other ideas you would like to see implemented into the Shapeways educational program please email firstname.lastname@example.org
