New 3D Printing Suite Open

The new 3D printing suite in the NRF is now open for business! The new facility houses our Stratasys Objet 260 Connex 1, Stratasys Dimension uPrint and Dolomite Fluidic Factory 3D printers. In addition we have two new custom built CAD & SolidWorks stations for the design and manipulation of 3D solid models. Stay tuned as we will be adding more cutting edge printers to this suite in the near future to expand our capabilities.

Our Nanoscribe Professional GT 3D laser lithography system is now housed in a purpose built pressure cascaded room to avoid particle contamination during printing. Parts can be developed and cleaned in the recirculating fumehood within the room, allowing all steps of fabrication and finishing to be completed in this ‘clean’ environment.
