3D Printing Workshop

Lab equipment includes:

  • Markforged Metal X System for 3D printing metal safely
    • Markforged Metal X printer for printing component made up of metal particles mixed with wax
    • Markforged WASH-1 tank for washing out the solvent, most of the wax
    • Markforged SINTER-1 sintering oven for fusing particles together with heat
  • Epilog Fusion Laser Engraving and Cutting System for precision cutting and project prototyping of materials including wood, acrylic, and some plastics using a different, convenient, and often faster process
  • Stratasys Dimension 1200 SST 3D printer for faster and more accurate/precise printing, resulting in more robust products and functional prototypes
    • Also for printing more types of materials without warping as a result of the heated inner chamber
  • Stratasys Objet30 Resin 3D Printer for printing high-resolution parts by spraying dots of resin and curing the resin with the UV light inside of the printhead
    • Also for printing multiple materials at the same time (for example, you can print a rigid piece with a flexible joint)
  • Resin cleaning stations for washing off any remaining liquid resin (liquid resin can be messy, even toxic)
  • Markforged Mark Two printer for printing complicated components embedded with materials including kevlar and carbon fiber
  • Branson 8800 Ultrasonic Cleaner for removing dirt and contaminations from 3D printed parts
