Our partners from Audax, 3D printing specialist run a workshop on FDM and PolyJet 3D printing technology. We worked with two 3D printers we now have here at our laboratories the FDM printer Stratasys F170 and PolyJet printer Stratasys Object 260 CONNEX. As part of the workshop we learned how to maintain, operate and safely use these two 3D printers. Special thanks to instructor Rok Plevnik.
Rok also showed us how PolyJet technology can mix materials in order to curate digital materials with custom properties. CONNEX does this by printing with droplets a technique similar to the one used by inkjet printers. Exciting times ahead!
