In this work, we developed modules aiming to educate the students on variables and general function of the 3D printers through Virtual Reality (VR) simulation and interaction, with the goal of improving students’ learning experience on additive manufacturing (AM).
We demonstrated two VR modules, both plastic and metal AM laboratories. The procedure of programming the modules was introduced. The functionalities of the modules were presented in the videos. We showed that how the VR modules can be used as an innovative tool for AM education.
