 RAPID PROTOTYPING (PRO)
 
   
PRO209: Ultimaker and MakerBot Replicator SBU

In this class, you will learn the basics of 3D printing, how to set up and use two 3D printers:MakerBot Replicator and Ultimaker 2 and print a small part in PLA (polylactic acid) plastic. 3D printing is used to describe an additive process, which builds a physical object from a digital 3D file. A 3D object can be made from scratch using a digital modeling program such as: Inventor Pro, Blender or Fusion 360.

3D printers build three-dimensional models from the bottom up by extruding a thin string of plastic on layer at a time. Programs are created based on a stereolithography (STL) CAD file and output to a programming language called G-code that the printer uses to create the part.

The Ultimaker can create parts as large as 22.3 x 22.3 x 20.5 cm (length x width x height). Print resolution (layer height) is from 0.3 mm to 0.06 mm. (Roughly 8.5” x 8.5” x 8”)

The MakerBot can create parts as large as 25.2 x 19.9 x 15 cm (length x width x height). Print resolution (layer height) is 0.3mm to 0.1 mm. (Roughly 10” x 7.5” x 6”)
