Just give the printer the option for a web-end where I can upload STLs and set some parameters if any.
agreed. but app with quite easy functions might be good for kids to experience 3D and be attracted to learn 3D.

Re: What do you do using 3D printer?

Hi Arhi and Owen,

It's good to chat with you. Onshape is leading 3D modeling direction. Another Cloud CAD is geekcad which is too easy to use in work, might can be used for education.
