Get started with 3D printers
3D printing is a process by which you can create a three-dimensional model based on a digital project file.
There are two types of 3D printer located in the ABVenture Zone, on the 8th floor of the MacRobert Building. If you would like to use a 3D printer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 4364.
- The Ultimaker 2 3D printer is suited to larger 3D prints, with a maximum print volume of 23cm x 22.5cm x 20.5cm. It prints models using reels of coloured filament.
- The ProJet 1200 3D printer is suited to smaller 3D prints requiring fine detail with a maximum print volume of 43 x 27 x 150mm.
Note: Before using a 3D printer, you will need to prepare your digital design using specialised software. Click the Downloads button below to find out more.
