3D printing facilities now available to ZSUT students and researchers

3D printing facilities are now available to ZSUT students and researchers. Our design and production workshop is equipped with a workstation running sophisticated 3D modelling software (also accessible from multiple remote terminals) and a 3D printer. The printer’s easily replaceable base plates allow for a “production run” of multiple objects to be efficiently organized. The 140x140x135 mm “build volume” is sufficient for our needs, but much larger shapes can be assembled from the printed parts, should such need arise. The facilities can be used for fast prototyping, giving a finishing touch to students’ diploma projects, and venturing into the realm of cyber-physical systems.
