The Flashforge Creator 3 3D printer features an Independent Dual Extruder System (IDEX). This takes dual extruder capabilities to the next level. Because the two nozzles are on separate carriages, you will not get height problems between the two nozzles and there also will not be contamination when running different materials. The best is that you can double your printing speed by printing two parts at the same time. This alone puts the Creator 3 in a league of its own. What is, even more, is the printer is built on a solid steel frame, it has a removable built plate capable of temperatures up to 120 Deg C and it features WIFI and a built-in camera for remote monitoring. The filament spools fit snugly in the side of the printer and are monitored by filament runout sensors. The hot ends are designed to run up to 300 deg C and are compatible with PLA, ABS, PETG, PVA, HIPS, Wood, Nylon and flexible filaments.

What people are saying about Thought Africa
Views expressed below are those of the individual and not those of SchoolAdvisor or the school
Maker Space Development
Makerspace Build , Thought Africa
Joel and Thought partnered with us as we looked to reinvent our library space into an area that was more aligned with our curriculum, development pathway and that would excite our students. Thought was instrumental in achieving this vision and the results have far exceeded our expectations.

On our way with a partner
Makerspace Build , Thought Africa
We were introduced to Thought Africa, and Joel when we went out to tender on redesigning our spaces at the school. Although the project is ongoing we have had the opportunity to see the other services and products that Thought Africa offers. They were intrinsically involved in a very successful grade 2 coding day and have continually stayed in contact with new ideas for introducing and preparing our students for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Ahead of the Game
Makerspace Build , Thought Africa
Thought Africa is really ahead of the game. They are relevant and future focused, offering a variety of tech to make your classroom a place of thinking and hands on learning. They give you options based on your school/classroom needs and are there every step of the process. I also got tutorials on how to use some of the tech. Their enthusiasm helps you mentally prepare yourself for your new classroom and also drives you to develop interesting and interactive lessons.

Engaging and Exciting!
Ultimate Robot Kit V2.0, Thought Africa
Joel's passion and expertise in this space is evident. It's infectious and the children really learned a lot about coding and robotics. They got to practice creative and computational thinking through meaningful and engaging activities. Thought Africa offers many different courses that would be of benefit for corporates, students and parents - especially the ones about hydroponics and urban farming!
