A new 3D printer goes along with innovation
March 17th, 2017
The 3D Printer park at ECAM is growing: the school just received a new Raise 3D printer that will facilitate innovation projects for students, teachers, clubs, and entrepreneurs. Particularly easy to use, this printer can print pieces for a low price, often with the undercut structures that only this kind of technology can produce. This machine will be integrated into the ECAM Factory’s technological platform .
Among the first productions include a mount for the ECAM Aeronautic Club’s drone and a prototype of a braille tablet for the PRD (the Student Research and Development Project). This new 3D printer offers a multitude of functions and can use different materials (ex : PLA, ABS, PC, flexible materials…).
After a guided testing phase, the students will work this 3D printer on their own as part of their program.
