Biomimetics and Dextrous Manipulation Lab


Currently we have a Form 3 and a Form 2 3D printer. And we currently only stock Rigid 4000 resin. Any special resins should be ordered along with resin tank for specific projects.

Form 2 needs a routine cleaning, approximately about twice a year. This is necessary as dust accumulate on the galvanometer mirror, causing the prints to have "holes" in them. The procedure of cleaning the galvanometer is listed here, and the entire process takes about 20 minutes.
