3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process of making three-dimensional physical objects from digital models. These physical objects are created by adding or laying down and binding successive layers of material. FabLab offers 2 different types of 3D printing, each in a different material. The FabLab has a number of Makerbot Replicator+, Makerbot Replicator Z18, a Projet 660 and a ZCorp Z450.

Operation Instructions

Workmanship Considerations

  • It is strongly recommended that students come in for a 1 on 1 Digital Fabrication Technical Session prior to submitting a job to the FabLab, particularly if they are unfamiliar with the machine.
  • Students are encouraged to do a test print early in semester to familiarise themselves with the 3D print process prior to submitting their final file.
