JellyBOX 3D Printer Category winners - Best for schools

Make Magazine: Best For Schools 2017 Award

JellyBOX has been awarded Best For Schools” in the Make Magazine’s 3D Printer Guide for 2017! We are humbled and excited by this amazing award. This is our first year on the market, and our JellyBOX has already been proclaimed 1st Best in the Educational Category, and 10th Best 3D Printer Overall. This surpasses our wildest dreams! It’s elevating and gratifying to see that our passionate contribution to the 3D printing education gets recognized and validated this fast.

I think the initial interest was due to morbid curiosity, “is this thing with zip ties really going to work?” and then shifted to fandom as the Jellybox printed with amazing speed and reliability. […] The Jellybox had an amazing underdog story at the DigiFab Testing Shootout. Read the full review in Make Magazine.

Whereas I HATED the frustrating “build experience” of my first 3D printer kit, I absolutely LOVE the uniquely innovative construction and simple build process of the JellyBox kit.

The “science” of the Jellybox is quickly demystified. Literally anyone could build this thing. To an experienced person, I still think the quick build has a lot to offer as a learning experience. The Jellybox totally blows my mind.

I have had the luxury of using many 3D printers ranging in price from $1000 to $250,000. I have not seen print quality like it produces from $5000 printers and some even higher. The printer is well designed, engineered, and is mostly put together with zip ties. Yes zip ties!
