The Engineering Core operates six 3D Printing machines as a core service to researchers, clinicians and for our own projects. Our current equipment includes the following (see the links for additional information):
Our team will be happy to assist you in select a material and/or a technology to use for your 3D Printing application. We can evaluate your design for “printability” and provide a price quote in advance.
Below is a matrix to compare the various 3D printer options available to us, on-site. We can assist with sourcing a 3D Print from an outside vendor if a different technology is needed (e.g. metal).
