Multi-Process 3D Printing

Exhibit Code: GLE-214
Zone: Engineering Park
Location: James E. Gleason Hall (GLE/009) - 2410
Time: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Age Group: 7 and Up

This project showcases a Multi-Process 3D Printer system developed by a group of five students for their senior design project. In a traditional 3D printer, the print technique is a single fixed design (the most common of which is the "hot glue gun" type which extrudes heated plastic onto a surface in thin strands to build up a physical part). The aim of this project is to develop a system which can utilize multiple print (and material removal processes) through the creation and implementation of a generalized head-interface system. In our system, this is accomplished through a standard 3-axis lead-screw driven system which interfaces with a magnetically controlled securing sub-system. Come by and see the current stage of our developed printer system!
