3D Printers

3D printers make objects by assembling seamless layers of material. You can create a model for printing by utilising any 3D software, 3D scanner or by downloading one from the Internet. The choice is yours. 3D printers are frequently used to print jewellery, household tools or prototypes of space technologies. FabLab has four machines at its disposal.

 

Ultimaker 3 is a specific type of 3D printer with two extruders. The second head means that it can simultaneously print with the soluble support, which makes it an ideal tool for the creation of complex objects. The printer enables almost full automation of tasks and with an embedded cam also remote printing control.

 

Prusa i3 MK2 comes from the workshop of Josef Průša, the Czech 3D printing guru. In comparison to previous versions, it has a 31% larger working area (10,500 cm3). It provides fully automated calibration of the printing area, as well as compensates for imprecisely assembled axes. The printer can form layers as thin as 0.05 mm. This 3D printer is available at FabLab in three different locations.
