3D Printing at Home

Starting Summer 2020, the printer of choice for this course is the Creality Ender 3 which can be found here.

The Ultimaker 3D Printer Slicing Software Cura 3D will be used for the printers in our lab and those in the Innovation Colab through the 3D Printer OS System here.  Learn how to use this operation system here.

There are vast online resources that will help you through the ‘build, calibrate, design, and implement’ process that will make your 3D printer a critical part of your required design and prototyping training.  We recommend that you visit the links below before embarking on your 3D printer journey or deciding on a CAD program or slicer software to use.
