CREATE Education has a new Hub!
We’re very proud to welcome the innovative and ground-breaking team from Print City to the CREATE family.
Housed within Manchester Metropolitan University, Print City is a modern digital manufacturing facility specialising in additive manufacturing and education. The facility is unique in that it works with everyone and anyone from those taking their first steps in CAD, or 3D printing to those studying for an advanced qualifications. This means that students from all facets of education are embracing 3D printing and seeing its applications to their field and drawing from the experiences of those in other fields too.
All 3D printed parts begin with a CAD file and to help students develop this skill the facility has a dedicated CAD area with 32 powerful machines running Autodesk Fusion 360. A user can then continue their journey using one of 40 3D printers for manufacturing plastic and metal parts, along with a broad range of associated technologies, including scanning, laser welding and laser-cutting.
Education is at the heart of PrintCity, they work across multiple disciplines within the University and in use industry partnerships to ensure that the latest skills and technologies are being used by students from multiple disciplines. In addition to Print City joining as a Create Education hub, a number of the Print City team are also joining as CREATE Ambassadors to help promote the good word of 3D Printing amongst the education community!
