Description

The faculty of Engineering & Environment require new FDM 3D printers to replacement the faculty’s heavily used MakerBot 3D printers. The faculty currently has 15 5th gen models and 5 Z18 models.
The new replacements should all work from the same operating/slicing software and be suitable for education, research and professional use. The faculty requires a total of 20 printers of which at least 3 should be large models. We prefer the devices to be provided on a leased basis, but open to explore outright purchase if this provides better value for money.
