3-D printing has Arrived at MCC!

Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Institute is proud to announce that Mesa Community College now has state of the art 3-D printing capabilities!

In the Manufacturing lab (TC 107), we have 2 new 3D printers, the Fortus 250 and 400, that can utilize 11 different materials with build size up to 16X14X16 inches.

We would like to invite you to participate in a one-hour session for orientation about 3-D printing technology and how it can possibly be incorporated into your current curriculum.

These sessions will be held in room TC 107.:

  • May 4th at 1:00 pm
  • May 8th at 5:00 pm

The 1 hour orientation will consist of:

  1. The history and applications of 3-D printing
  2. Current technology and capacity available at Mesa Community College
  3. A brief tutorial on protocols and procedures for using these resources
  4. Discuss modular curriculum and integration
  5. A demonstration of the 3-D printers

Many industries are beginning to utilize 3-D printing. The need for knowledgeable technicians is creating new career opportunities for graduating students. Everyone at AzAMI is very excited to share and introduce students to this rapidly growing technology. We are confident that applications for 3-D printing can be found in many academic departments here at Mesa Community College and look forward to hearing your ideas and receiving input about incorporating 3-D printing into your curriculum!

Facilitator: Dirk BeGell,  resident Trained and certified Lab Technician for 3-D printing technology, also known as Additive Manufacturing.
