Innovation Space Adds Specialized 3D Printer for Research

The HS/HSL Innovation Space recently expanded its prototyping power with the addition of a 3D printer. The new Raise3D N2 printer provides a larger build volume than what was previously available. But perhaps more importantly, the N2 can print with a z-height resolution of 10 microns (0.01 mm), an order of magnitude finer than its counterparts.

“There have been times our printers weren’t capable of printing a user’s design due to resolution constraints. The new N2 printer will help out in this area,” said Brian Zelip, Emerging Technologies Librarian.

Some specifications of the N2 include:

  • Layer resolution: 0.01 ~ 0.25 mm
  • Maximum build size: 305 x 305 x 305 mm (12 x 12 x 12 in)
  • Filament types: PLA, ABS, PETG, and more

The N2 printer will initially be reserved for research needs.
