3D Printing


The 3D Printing Art Practice Area allows students to 3D print in single colour plastics, work with 3D scanning and modelling software.


Termly inductions will be held for using the Ultimaker 3D printers and Artec 3D scanner, in addition to introduction sessions for designing in 3D modelling software ‘zbrushcore’ and ‘fusion360’.

Students are encouraged to develop their 3D modelling skills through online tutorials freely available online.

**Please Note: You will have to take an induction before being able to book time on the 3D printers in wb100.

Please go to the office, in the Whitehead Building, Room 100 for any enquiries.
