3D Printers have arrived at eLearning

Teaching and Learning Facilities have purchased two 3D printers: a Makerbot Replicator 2x and an UP Box.

Over the last month or so we have been learning about what we can do with them to support the Teaching and Learning Facilities department, as well as how they can be used in teaching, learning and research (more on that in upcoming posts). A few examples of what we have designed and printed:

iPad stands

Used to hold up the iPads when we are setting them up to go out on loan.



For the new mobile recording boxes used by Media Production, to hold equipment in place.

These are just the first items we are printing –  we are keen to print out as much as we can. If you have something you think might be worth printing, whether it’s for your teaching or your research please let us know, either by commenting below or getting in touch with the Service Desk.
