Reality Server for HS Students

Hi all, I am a high school teacher in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am currently assigned to teach Virtually within the Toronto DSB. I teach a subject called Technological Design. My classes use Onshape for their  course work. I find the devices that students have to access my classroom vary due to home resources. And if students have no device, our board loans chromebooks. The choice to use Onshape was obvious.

My currents projects have students also rendering their solutions. I have asked them to use Reality Server to do renderings of their Design Intent and Solutions. The problem is, 2 hours isn't enough time to do 3 or 4 projects. Does anyone know how I could get more time with the Reality Server App for my students who are Education Users?

    Are you sure the 2 hours is not enough? I have found the allocation of free render hours to do quite a lot.  If you and your students have indeed exhausted the free rendering credits. Perhaps you can reach out to me via email [email protected]

    Hi Joe,
    I have students working remotely. I can ask them to share their screen with me and I can check where they are with the two hours. I have 2 students that say they have exhausted the 2 hours. I will contact you.
