The Art Center College of Design purchased a paper-based 3D printer by Mcor to cut the cost of printing materials and promote an environmentally-friendly atmosphere. The printer enables students to use regular, 8.5 x 11 copy paper to craft 3D models, which decreased material costs for the school. Plus, the printer’s unused paper scraps can be recycled, and its printing materials are nontoxic and safe for student use. Before other colleges follow in the Art College of Design’s footprints and purchase their own paper-based 3D printers, they should consider what their printing needs are, consider the long-term ROI the printer would offer, and invest in a printer company that will invest back into the school.
