Four sophomore students who were all members of the student 3D printing club:WOOF, set out to design and fabricate a large format printer (during one academic quarter of 2014).  They are the third team to undertake this task. The team was composed of  Jeff Bergeson,  Nicole Bentzen,  Daniel Palomaki, and Kim Sokol.   {Rendering of […]

It seems like everyone is getting on the DLP bandwagon in the 3D printing space as of late.  While we have known about DLP 3D printing (i.e. vat photopolymerization process – ASTM F2792 − 12a)  for some time, we had chosen to stay away mostly due to resin issues.   Over the past few years, many new […]

Dear Readers, Thanks for your patience. After a bit of work,  we are running on new campus level servers.   This mean MUCH better up-time and automatic backup — hopefully more reliable service for you. For a short time, there will be a redirection page (but that will go away in the near future). BUT […]
