The University of Sheffield wishes to invite tenders for 3D Printers x 3 Lots on behalf of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Design and Prototyping Group at Catcliffe, South Yorkshire.

Scope of Requirement

The Design and Prototyping Group (DPG) operate a site wide Free Access 3D printing scheme, open to all AMRC employees.
