– The 3D printer prints glue on thin layers of plaster. It manufactures one centimeter per hour. The technique is based on the inkjet principle, explains Josef Forslund, teacher in technical design.
The equipment is very helpful during the design process. The 3D printer will be used in the programmes, for example in the course advanced model building. The technology is also used in product design in work life.
– It's about going from a 2D sketch to a CAD drawing, and finally to a 3D model. The 3D model helps the designer to get a feeling for the size, shape and color, says Josef Forslund.
