We are the Cambridge University 3D printing club! We are a student society here at the Dyson centre dedicated to 3D printing and other types of rapid prototyping. Whether you are a model making master or just want to learn how to download and print the Imperial fleet from Star Wars you are more than welcome to join our society.  

We are planning several exciting projects over the coming term, like making our own 3D printer and scanner. There are always opportunities to join in and find something to do. The society recently secured a grant from the Engineering department which will be used in part to finance more exotic printing materials for us to use. If you have any great ideas for what we should get let us know at one of our meetings. 

Our weekly meetings are held by the 3D printers in the Dyson Centre every Wednesday at 14:00 during term time. Email  James (jpr55) or Preben (pmn26) for details or just turn up on the day.


We try to post all our creations on our thingiverse group along with some comments on each build. 

You can subscribe to the CU3D mailing list here.

First lesson content is here.

The Engineering Department are delighted to announce a major refurbishment project taking place in the Summer of 2015. 

£2M donation from the James Dyson Foundation, a £2.65M investment from the Higher Education Funding Council for England and £0.6M from the University of Cambridge will allow us to transform the workshop and library facilities for hands-on learning, access to information, and the encouragement of creativity and innovation.
