3D Printing Lab

The 3D Printing Lab is a centre for Rapid Prototyping or 3D printing.

3D printing supports the quick production of complex three-dimensional prototypes and on-demand manufacturing. This allows product concepts to be rapidly tested and ideas to be trialled before committing major costs to going into production. It also supports faster iterations of the product development process before a design is finalized.

The 3D Printing Lab works with students, staff and industry on a range of 3D printing applications and projects. Staff associated with the Lab are also researching new additive manufacturing technologies and developing methods to make most effective use of the available technologies to produce complete product prototypes in very short times.
