3D Printing

3D Printer

The Clemson Digital Design Studio is equipped with five Bits From Bytes 3D Touch printers.  3D printing with a Bits from Bytes 3DTouch is a process of building up layers of either PLA or ABS plastic. The model is formed from the molten plastic using the data from your CAD drawing.

Each printer is equipped with two printing heads. Head #2 contains PLA (Polylactic Acid) Clear Translucent. Loaded in head #1 is PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) which is a water soluble filament used for support while printing.

The Digital Design Studio is in  Lee 1 – 264.

Because printing times are lengthy and vary widely printing is on a first come first serve basis. If someone is waiting for a turn to print you must relinquish the machine when your print is finished regardless of it printing successfully or not. Please plan ahead.

Clemson Architecture and Landscape Architecture students can use this resource if they have undergone training.  Untrained students are not allowed.  Please contact myself or the current semester’s Graduate Teaching Assistant(s) for training.
