Coventry University Design Students Explore 3D Printing Benefits
For the past 30 years Coventry University’s Department of Industrial Design has thrived in encouraging creative thinking in its 500+ students. The department, recognised globally for its educational leadership, harbours students specialising in a number of design backgrounds such as fine arts, jewellery design, product design, transport and automation design.
To continue the department’s reputation for developing new ways to allow students to explore creative boundaries through innovative technology, the university decided to introduce an SYS 3D printing system. The Stratasys Eden250 printer was chosen for its capabilities in producing complex models as well as its compact design that allows it to fit in an office or workshop environment.
The Eden250 significantly reduces the time required on the student’s behalf to produce the parts therefore allowing them to spend more time exploring different elements and methods of designing and refining parts.
