3D Printing at Purdue
3D Printing is an excellent tool for rapid prototyping your concepts. There are many 3D printers available to Purdue students on campus. To get started, submit the below request to the EPICS undergraduate TA's for printing, or visit one of the following links to submit requests to other Purdue facilities.
Prints will completed in order of submission. Please be aware that 3D printers are subject to downtime and maintenance. The printer queue is longest during the week before design review, so prints submitted during that week are likely to experience long wait times.
EPICS provides two 3D printers for team use: a Dremel 3D Idea Builder 3D printer and an Ultimaker 2 Extended. Both printers have a single print head for monocolor prints. The Dremel printer has a 0.004"(0.1 mm) layer height minimum. The maximum build size is 9" x 5.9" by 5.5". The Ultimaker printer has a finer 0.0008" (0.02 mm) layer height minimum. The Ultimaker has a larger maximum build size at 8.8" x 8.8" x 12".
