Explore the 3D Printer

MHC has purchased and commissioned a Stratasys Fortus 400mc 3D printer and Faro EdgeArm and Laser Tracker for scanning. Our printer uses Fused Deposition Modeling and is able to produce a variety of prototypes and end use parts out of a number of thermoplastics. Our scanning equipment can be used for a variety of applications such as reverse engineering of existing parts, creation of models to archive unique parts, or providing models for mold making. This equipment is used by students, faculty, and industry.
