NTU, SUTD set up joint 3-D printing lab

Published on : 31-Aug-2013


NTU and SUTD launched a joint lab to develop new techniques in 3D design and printing. Research funds amounting to S$200,000 and four PhD scholarships have been set aside for the Visualisation and Prototyping lab, which will have dual facilities at the campuses of the two universities. For a start, the lab will see four research projects focusing on areas such as large-scale prototyping, multi-material 3D printing and embedded sensor technology. NTU's Associate Provost for Graduate Education Professor Yue Chee Yoon said the advent in 3D design and printing allows anyone now to produce an item with complex configurations while having the flexibility to accommodate design changes conveniently to meet rapidly changing industrial demands without incurring additional tooling costs.
