Additive Manufacturing Lab

The additive manufacturing lab has extensive capabilities through the use of open-source printers, proprietary printers as well as specialty printers. Students and additive manufacturing training often progresses through the use of the open-source printers and specifically the development and use of CAD drawings and their translation into effective print files yielding a successful 3D build. If projects demand more complex print materials or design and finishing specifications, proprietary and specialty 3D printers are utilized.
