3D Printing

ET 3D Print Lab

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing is a technology that allows the rapid creation of prototype models. The ET Student 3D Printing office is available for any Engineering and Engineering & Technology students to use for classwork, research or for a personal project.
While 3D printing is highly flexible, it is most useful for intricate parts, complex, or uncommon shapes. Basic components are better off being made with more traditional techniques. Our printers are limited in their abilities sometimes, large overhangs and excessively sharp or tight corners should be avoided.
The 3D printing office team maintains the right to turn down or report any print they deem inappropriate for a school environment. The 3D team will also review all prints and, if they have concerns about the chance of success for a print, work with the person requesting the print to improve the model.
