Digital fabrication allows the production of prototypes directly from 3D models. The additive, or "building up" nature of 3D printing offers an ease of use and freedom of form that simply can't be found in subtractive fabrication technologies such as laser cutting or CNC machining, making it a suitable gateway for design professionals interested in learning more about designing for manufacturing.This course will cover the fundamentals of digital modeling for 3D printing, file preparation and output methods for multiple types of 3D printers, and best practices in 3D printer operations.

Z Corp Spectrum Z510
The ZCorp Spectrum Z510 3D Printer is an inkjet powder printer that combines zp150 High Performance Composite Powder with zb60 clear binder solution to deliver self-supporting, high-resolution powder prototypes. Finished prototypes can be baked to accelerate the curing process and infiltrated with a number of coatings to increase part durability. Parts can be finished with sandable primer, automotive paints, and clear coats

Roland Picza 3D Laser Scanner
The Roland LPX 3D Laser Picza Scanner generates high-resolution (0.009in accuracy), watertight 3D polygonal models through both rotary and planar laser scanning. The scanner can handle objects as large as 10in in diameter and 16in in height. Through a simple USB interface models can be generated in both *.stl and *.3dm (Rhino) format.
Work Surface Area: 10" x 16"
