Our latest acquisition is a Creality Ender 3 3D printer an entry level model popular with hobbyists.
This printer was chosen because there is extensive support and training in how to use it available online . The unit can readily be upgraded to increase its capabilities. So far it has only been used for small jobs as part of the learning process, however there are more ambitious projects on their way in the future. Files containing the shape of objects to be printed can be downloaded and there are literally thousands of designs available. A good place to start is www.thingiverse.com . It is planned to run some basic introductory courses in the near future.
