which is more convenient and safer compared to the traditional way”.

She said that the printer allows computer 3D models to be sliced into layers and the software directs the pattern as it builds the part from the bottom up.

“The products can be designed in Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software or 3D scanners that are used to create designs from existing objects,” added Siow.

The 3D printer is primarily used in teaching students who are undertaking programmes such as BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design (3+0) and BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design (3+0), BA (Hons) Graphic Design and Diploma in Interactive Design which are being offered in collaboration with Nottingham Trent University, UK.

“Students can benefit from the 3D printer while working on projects such as
