3D Printing

Wavemaker’s 3D printer is a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 5th Generation. It prints PLA (biodegradable thermoplastic derived from corn starch or sugarcane) which is ideal for prototyping and model making.

The build volume is 25.2 x 19.9 x 15 cm (W x D x H).

You will need to save your 3D design as an STL file so it can be prepared for the MakerBot.
Alternatively, email over your STL file and we can prepare it for you.
