The F123 Series works with a range of materials – so you can produce complex parts with flexibility and accuracy. And it includes advanced features like Fast Draft mode for truly rapid prototyping, and soluble support to prevent design compromise and hands-on removal. All designed to shorten your product development cycle and keep you ahead of the competition.

The Stratasys F120 has all the features and benefits of their larger industrial-grade 3D printers. Print complex designs with confidence thanks to soluble support.
The Form 2, from FormLabs, is the first SLA printer that the library is using. This printer has incredible dimensional accuracy and a wide variety of materials.
Located in B.E.S.T. Library, the MakerGear printer is a precision machine that melts and extrudes ABS plastic a layer at a time. Layer heights (the thickness of an individual printed layer) are measured in small fractions of a millimeter; while typical layer heights are between 0.3mm and 0.1mm, the MakerGear can print layers as thin as 0.05mm. A millimeter is about the thickness of 10 sheets of ordinary laser printer paper. That means that the MakerGear can build layers half the thickness of a piece of paper, allowing us to print fine details not available on other machines.
Our charges for the printers are intended for cost recovery for the material used. For certain high-risk projects (where we have serious doubts about being able to print the model successfully), it may be necessary to also charge for repeated failed prints. If you want to print on something other then the recommended printer that our specialist suggest you will also be required to pay for failed prints We will notify you in advance if this will be the case, and we will always seek to build objects using the most cost-effective tactics feasible.
