We want to hear from you! Help us develop the next generation of 3D printers by completing this short survey.

Question Title

* 1. Would you consider yourself someone that is a "maker" (someone that enjoys DIY, arts, crafts, or other projects) and/or a "maker educator" (someone that prefers to use projects to teach concepts to students)?

Question Title

* 2. What is your preferred gender?

Question Title

* 3. How many times have you been around the sun?

Question Title

* 4. How familiar are you with 3D printers?

Question Title

Here are some projects created on a 3D printer.

Question Title

* 5. How appealing is the idea of 3D printing to you, personally?

Question Title

* 6. If you have used or would use a 3D printer, what would you use it for?

Question Title

Here you can see two different versions of 3D printers.

Question Title

* 7. What benefits do you look for in a 3D printer? (please rank)

Question Title

* 8. Are there any other benefits you look for?

Question Title

* 9. If you're familiar with 3D printing, how would you rank these features when looking for 3D printer to buy?

Question Title

* 10. Are there any other features we missed that are important to you?

Question Title

* 11. What features do you think most people would be willing to pay for?

Question Title

* 12. Why did you choose these features?

Question Title

* 13. If you were purchasing a 3D printer, about how much would you be willing to pay?

Question Title

* 14. What do you think are the biggest challenges to 3D printing? (please rank)

Question Title

* 15. Why did you choose that ranking and/or is there something we left out?

Question Title

* 16. For someone that doesn't own a 3D printer, what do you think are their biggest barriers to purchase?

Question Title

* 17. Why?

Question Title

* 18. How interested do you think children would be with 3D printing?

Question Title

* 19. Do you think teaching 3D printing to students is valuable?

Question Title

* 20. Does customizing (ex. with different colors) or upgrading features on a 3D printer after it is purchased appeal to you?

Question Title

* 21. Would you rather have multiple smaller printers or one printer with tons of features?

Question Title

* 22. 3D printers require the use of computer-aided design (CAD) software to create a digital file that can be 3D printed. Some examples of CAD software include Tinkercad, SketchUp, Fusion 360, Inventor, or SoildWorks. How familiar are you with CAD software?

Question Title

* 23. If a 3D printer could make anything, what would you use 3D printing for? (Examples could be starting a micro-manufacturing business, fixing broken parts on appliances/machines, printing buildings, printing organs, etc.)

Question Title

* 24. CNC machines or laser cutters carve projects out of wood, a variety of plastics and other materials. They use a digital file in a subtractive process, whereas a 3D printer uses an additive process to build models layer by layer. How interested are you in subtractive manufacturing?

Question Title

* 25. Do you have any final thoughts on 3D printing that you'd like to share with a 3D printing manufacturer?
