3D Printers

There are currently two Makerbot 3D printing machines, located at the Resource Centre, Building 201, Level 3. Students are encouraged to print projects where the focus is  towards explorative modelling where more precise cuts and measurements, like building facades, building skins, building components (gears, joints etc) are required. The machines are operated under the supervision of our technical staff to assist as needed.
