3D printing revolution

The latest 3D printing technology can turn something designed on a computer and saved digitally into a three dimensional object in a solid form.

Product Design students at UWE Bristol regularly use 3D printing for course projects and the technology is also used in the Bristol Robotics Laboratory to create highly specialised parts for robots that take a more critical role in robotics.

New 3D printers are now available for students in the Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education at the Bower Ashton Studios, adding to the extensive 3D printing facilities across UWE Bristol.

Watch the Arts and Humanities Research Council short film below to catch a glimpse of the process of 3D printing.

Student printing system

UWE Bristol offers a chargeable student printing system called Pharos. This is created automatically as part of your student computer account. Once you have credited your Pharos account, you can print from any student computer in UWE Bristol.
