Digital Manufacturing Lab with RepRap opens at the University of Bath

A new lab to showcase open source 3D printing.

The Digital Manufacturing Lab recently opened as part of the Bath Ventures Innovation Centre at the University of Bath, England. The purpose of the lab is to showcase the potential of 3D printing with the RepRap for developing new product ideas.

One thing that distinguishes this initiative from others is the focus on using the RepRap technology for business. 3D printing tends to be divided into high-end printers for large companies and cheaper open-source printers for personal use. This project is somewhere in the middle.

Update: If you are interested in using this facility or in RepRap technology in general, the Lab is hosting their first networking event on November 1st.
