Founded in 2016, the Cambridge University 3D Printing Society (CU3DSoc) is still in its infancy. CU3DSoc is comprised of over 30 first and second year undergraduates, predominantly engineering students. With plans to include art, architecture and medical students in their membership over the coming year, CU3DSoc has aspirations to become the focal point for 3D printing within the university. Thanks to access to several Stratasys 3D Printers, the society is undertaking complex engineering projects, with an outline to educate peers and create a nationwide 3D printing network.
Members are self-taught, enabling them to teach and learn from each other through hands-on training.
“We want the next generation of engineers to be prepared, to have knowledge of additive manufacturing and to be able to confront the problems of the modern global workforce head on.”
James Roberts, Cambridge University, 3D Printing Society
