Common applications of 3D printing include rapid prototyping and product development. Many other areas that are budding with 3D printing are bioprinting (biotechnology), fashion, construction (building house with concrete), and electronics.
Using opensource files from websites such as Thingiverse are also free – however staff discretion will be used for the type of print.
You can attend a hands-on 1 hour workshop and safety training if you are interested in learning how to use the 3D printer and want to use it more often. For more information, please email the ICUBE Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. After the initial workshop, interested individuals may schedule further prints with the ICUBE Program Coordinator and by passing an assessment, will eventually be allowed to use the 3D printer unsupervised.
In addition, you are required to complete online WHMIS training (course EHS 005). Registration is only possible using a UofT computer and a valid UTORid. The training material is conducted through Blackboard (portal.utoronto.ca).
