Additive Manufacturing Lab

Two students in the Additive Manufacturing lab

This lab contains state-of-the-art Additive Manufacturing equipment to help you turn ideas into reality! Students can access a range of 3D printers, from high resolution photopolymer printers to robust large format thermoplastic printers. Our experienced technicians can provide design and printing advice, alongside printer training through the Manufacturing Club. Students get the chance to collaborate with world leading AM researchers helping to develop new AM technologies and applications.
