Additive manufacturing with thermoplastic 3D printers has seen a large increase in high-performance engineering grade materials available for producing functional prototypes. With this unique process, filament made of ABS, Nylon, Polycarbonate and flexible materials in various shore hardnesses can be printed with ease.
This workshop presents guidlines for optimizing 3D models for 3D printing and how to properly prepare the printer to succesfully create repeatable results with high dimensional accuracy for the respective material.
Throughout the semester, independent projects can be built in the campus rapid prototyping lab with the use of large format 3D printers, soldering irons, lathes, milling machines, welders and much more.
