Technology week- 3-D Printing demonstration

Technology week is in full swing in Nenagh college. Today at lunch students were welcomed to a 3-D Printing demonstration. Students were introduced to the processes of designing and prototyping using the additive process of 3-D Printing. They were given a demonstration on how to prepare their files in order to facilitate the manufacture process, instructed as to the best practice in locating their product on the machine bed and shown how to troubleshoot any potential areas for malfunction prior to commencing printing.
Each student who attended this workshop was gifted a Nenagh College keyring which had been designed using a 3-d modelling software in the room and manufactured on the machine.
