3D Printer Arrives in SE136

Saginaw Valley State University recently purchased a MakerGear M2 3D printer. It is currently undergoing testing in SE136 to assure accurate and productive printing for future use. While the printer can use either ABS or PLA for it’s printing material, we are currently using PLA (Polylactic Acid made from corn starch) and will continue using PLA as it is generally a less expensive and “greener” material compared to ABS.

Interested in seeing the 3D printer in action? You can either watch video 1 and video 2 or stop by SE136 after 2:30pm Monday through Thursday to see if something is printing.
