A good breakdown of 3D types, their selection and there trade-offs from FormLabs here

For video explanations of all the different types, check out our post here.

Recording a timelapse of each print is also possible. Example below




Get the CURA plugin to repair tools here.

See this video for help with repairing models that are created in Fusion 360



Introducing LDM 3D printing (Liquid Deposition Modelling)

This is a type of 3D printing similar to the typical FDM (Filament Deposition Modelling) but instead of filament or plastic, it uses a form of liquid, or in this case, clay and ceramics.

The printer we have currently is a Tronxy Moore 1, you can find out more about it here

Here’s what the printer looks like

Here’s some images of some printing tests and work that has been done using this equipment

If you want to use the LDM printer, follow the steps below and contact a technician about your project.

  1. Complete the FabLab 3D Printing Module on canvas, you can do that HERE
  2. Download the printer profile HERE to use with the CURA slicing software
  3. Prepare your 3D printing file with a technician in the FabLab
