On Tuesday the 28th of October the annual science fair at the faculty of industrial design was held. We displayed the printer and most of the testprints we made. We were not allowed to do any welding at the science fair for obvious reasons so we showed a video of the working printer.
Many people were interested in the design of the printer and we’ve got a lot of positive feedback. We received questions on how the printer works. Questions like: “where does the metal come from?” and “What software do you use?”. And some people had suggestions on improving the design. For example, the use of water for cooling.
The printer got the amount of attention that we were hoping for which made the science fair a nice way to end the project.
