CLEAPSS DT - Supporting practical work in science, technology and art

About this resource..
Additive manufacturing is a popular activity in schools, with the advent of relatively cheap 3D printers.

This project covers the use of a desktop 3D printer, using PLA filament, extruded through a heated nozzle.

The same safety considerations should be borne in mind when using other 3D printers, or rapid prototyping machines.
