3D printers up and running

We now have two new 3D printers up and running in the lab! This project is in partnership with Dr Filipe Vilela here at Heriot-Watt University along with other academics across Scotland and is funded by The Scottish Crucible (see earlier posts).

Grant success: interdisciplinary grant for 3D printing

As part of an interdisciplinary group, which formed as part of The Scottish Crucible, we applied and were successful in obtaining seed-corn funding for a project in 3D printing aiming to deliver groundbreaking outreach and research.
