3D Printer

Our Makerbot Replicator 2 3D Printer is a popular machine that is a lot of fun to work with. It can print 3D models with a base of 285mm x 153mm and a height of 155mm. The Makerbot Print software is easy to use and can import models or print STL files downloaded from the internet. We have a large range of coloured filament to choose from.

We use PLA filament, a tough plant-based plastic that can be made to biodegrade under the right conditions, or can be recycled back into PLA filament for re-use. PLA gives your 3D models a detailed result with a smooth finish.

If you have a project or would like to learn more about our 3D printer book an induction or contact us for more information.
