3D printing for research and outreach

CP3 recently acquired a MakerBot Replicator 2, a 3D printer capable of building plastic objects up to 15x15x25cm with a precision of 0.1mm. 3D printing is more and more used in experimental physics, and was already used at the CRC earlier this year. Now we will be able to prototype and design new pieces ourself, for outreach and research.

Additional information:

CP3 members, if you think your project could use this technology, please contact the "Bureau de dessin" for their expertise in the design of 3D pieces. The printer uses PLA, a type of eco-friendly plastic, as well as a more flexible material that can be used for pieces that should adapt to frequent bending.
