Additive Manufacturing

The Additive Manufacturing Laboratory supports local and national industry to build 3D prototype models from various materials. Prototype parts can then be used to test for fit, form and function. Parts can vary from small, intricate models, to much larger mockups.

Capabilities

  • FDM Printers from Consumer grade to Industrial Grade qualities
  • PolyJet Printer for high resolution and smooth surface quality
  • DMLS, Direct Metal Laser Sintering, Printer
  • Materials for simple prototypes to high strength and high temperature parts
  • Full Color 3D printing
