GUMake 3D Printer

Key to rapid prototyping, and loved by many students as a versatile and affordable method of manufacturing limited runs of smaller objects, a 3D printer is essential for the final design stages in many fields of engineering.

At GUMake, we have worked hard over the winter of 2015 to acquire our own 3D printer and get it up and running. While a new endeavour for us, the hard work has started paying off, with the first jobs already having been printed. More work remains to be done to fine tune the performance of our printer, but for smaller jobs it has proven it is no less capable than some far more expensive models currently used by other efforts in and and around the university.
