The Maker Space has two Makerbot Replicator and 3D printers for that you can use for prototyping items and many other projects.
What is a 3D printer?
A 3D printer is a rapid prototyping machine that creates physical objects by laying down many thin successive layers of material. It is an example of additive manufacturing.
What can you do with it?
3D printers can print in a variety of different colours and materials. An exciting range of items can be made with these machines: cases and boxes, puzzles and toys, phone and camera mounts, and many other models. With 3D printing, the only limits are your imagination and modelling skills.
To use the 3D printer for your own project, you’ll first need to gain access to the Maker Space by signing up, and then you’ll need to book an equipment training session.
To help you create whatever you imagine, download our quick reference user guide and one or more ‘inspire’ guides; and for hands-on guidance, you can attend one of our regular workshops. We also have trained creative technologists onsite to lend a hand.
