We have been doing 3D printing since 2014 and back at that time we were among the first to launch educational courses "The Art of Additive technologies" in Tver.
For 6 years of work in the field of 3D-printing, we have studied a lot of its aspects verbatim and implemented various activities such as: - holding several all-Russian competitions where we tested additive technologies in action, going all the way from the idea to the finished product; - developing and organizing a state-standard professional development course "Additive manufacturing. Layer-by-layer deposition of thermopolymers" on the basis of Tver state University; - launching an online course "The Art of Additive technologies (3D printing)" on Stepik.org platform.
The products are developed and monitored by 5-year-experienced mentors.
Intensive online training courses in "ADDITIVKA" 3D-printer assembly
Due to the self-isolation, we have decided to contribute to combating COVID-19 and to start intensive online training courses in 3d printing! You can learn 3D printing technology and contribute to the fight against the pandemic as well by joining the movement https://makersvscovid.ru/.
We have the following course formats:
- individual course: we will guide you how to make products with the 3D-printer. It may be either the printer that you bought and didn't use because of its breakdown or the one that you can assemble using our KIT-set; - family course: you and your 10+ child learn how to assemble your own 3D-printer thus introducing technical creativity and engineering perception of the world to them; - corporate course: company employees form teams and assemble some 3D-printers independently that becomes a type of team-building work; - socio-corporate course: a corporation or a company starts an initiative to support its employees and their families during the self-isolation.
"3D PRINTING" Board game
Initially we developed a Board game (LITE version) for teachers in schools and mentors of further education centers. Now we've adapted and improved our product (PRO version) to captivate board games fans by brand new management strategies.
What is the essence of the game?
Your goal is to create a successful 3D-printing lab. To do this, you will need to fulfill small and large orders, both individually and in cooperation with each other. Victory is guaranteed not so much by 3D-printers, their upgrades and materials knowledge as by planning, resource management skills and the ability to work in uncertainty conditions.

Testing in Finland
It helps makers, teachers of further education centers and their students study and consolidate 3D-printing theory with the help of an educational game and a chatbot, thereby reducing the time spent almost by half! The app will soon be available for download in the App Store and Google Play.
Who is this App for?
We did our best to make the app user-friendly for makers (students, recent graduates , specialists) and mentors.
I want to buy and download it!
Pre-order the "3D-PRINTING" LITE version (mid-May)
We offer to pre-order the "3D-PRINTING" Board game. We will find the best production method and terms of delivery. Estimated delivery time is the end of May - June.
Release of the "3D-PRINTING" PRO version (June-July)
This version will have expanded game mechanics and added test models to demonstrate the properties of materials.
The release of the App "ADDITIVKA" (August)
We are planning to release the app after the two versions of the Board game come out.

Feedback from colleagues and partners' feedback
The game has unique concept adding value to any 3D-printing equipment, class or skill. It expands understanding of 3D-printing and sets it is in a wider context of society and business. It deals with playing and teamwork around the topic. This approach supports Phenomenon-based learning, the core of Finnish Education methodology, and leans upon STEAM approach.
Playing this game, you can strategize how big to start, how many products to offer and how to grow the company. It also helps figure out how to co-operate with other 3D-printing businesses for growth. Highly recommended for people who want to start a business in 3D-printing as well as established small business owners looking to expand their business.
