3D Printing is a method of rapid prototyping in which objects are built (printed) layer by layer in an additive process. Typically, the printing software slices a computer model (stl file) into hundreds of very thin horizontal layers. The machine then prints (or fuses) those layers in succession one on top of the other, building the object from the bottom up. Robozz 3D Printers are available for student and faculty use in Zillion RPM Labs.
Additive Manufacturing is a process by which objects are created through joining or combining materials, often in layers, using a three-dimensional computer model. Our classes include training in technology known as 3-D printing.
