AER Facilities

Aerospace 3D Digital Fabrication Lab

The 3D Printer Lab supports design and fabrication of models and experimental apparatus, utilizing paper and a variety of polymers.

Production order is first-come, first-served with priority given to class and student projects. Plan ahead – there is no special allowance for "rush" jobs.

Stratasys Objet 260 Connex 3D PrinterStratasys Objet 260 Connex 3D Printer
The Objet 260 Connex lets you build three-material models as large as 255 × 252 × 200 mm (10.0 x 9.9 x 7.9 in.). With 16-micron layer accuracy and 14 photopolymers to simulate a range of material properties, you can see, touch, test and perfect every detail.
Stratasys Fortus 400mc 3D PrinterStratasys Fortus 400mc 3D Printer
The Fortus 400mc 3D production system produces accurate, durable, repeatable 3D parts with superior throughput in ABS plastic, Polycarbonate, ULTEM 9085, and PPSF/PPSU material. Unlike smaller "hobby" printers, the Fortus allows creation of complex part topologies, including significant overhang, holes, and other intricate features. It produces enhanced finish, strong internal bonds, custom individual layers, and large (16" x 14" x 16" build envelope) high-quality parts that consistently fit tolerances.
Mcor Matrix 3D PrinterMcor Matrix 3D Printer
The Mcor Matrix produces high-quality 3D printing and rapid prototyping in a fraction of the time of traditional 3D printers, using eco-friendly, inexpensive office paper and water-based adhesive. The build envelope is 9.39" x 6.89" x 5.9" (256mm x 169mm x 150mm).
Markforged Mark One
The Markforged Mark One is a composite printer that can produce nylon or nylon/fiberglass parts. Designed to overcome the strength limitations of traditional 3D printed materials, the revolutionary Mark One 3D printer is one of the world's first 3D printer designed to print continuous fiber glass reinforcement. It is capable of creating real composite parts that are up to 5X stronger and 20X stiffer than 3D printed parts made from ABS plastic. Contact us for more information.
