Addi­ti­ve manu­fac­tu­ring is a cru­cial tech­no­lo­gy which enab­les rapid pro­to­typ­ing of tech­ni­cal com­pon­ents. Tho­se may be as lar­ge as pro­to­ty­pes of air­craft engi­ne bla­des, or, as small as pro­to­ty­pes of microelec­tro­nic com­pon­ents. Often, a tho­rough review of rapid pro­to­typ­ing, inclu­ding app­li­ca­ti­on-dri­ven tests, is an inte­gral step wit­hin an ent­i­re R&D pro­cess. Fur­ther­mo­re, addi­ti­ve manu­fac­tu­ring repres­ents a new path towards minia­tu­riz­a­ti­on of com­pon­ents for opti­cal sys­tems. All this is pos­si­ble due to the fact that parts of com­plex shapes, less mass and addi­tio­nal func­tio­n­a­li­ty may be pro­du­ci­ble by a 3D prin­ter, but be inac­ces­si­ble for a pro­duc­tion by other com­mon tech­no­lo­gies.

The goal of the Maker­space is to pro­vi­de access to addi­ti­ve manu­fac­tu­ring tech­no­lo­gies in the Insti­tu­te of Phy­sics, as well as, to get stu­dents into con­ta­ct with the­se types of tech­no­lo­gies. The Maker­space team is eager to sup­port rese­arch pro­jects with the 3D prin­ting tech­no­lo­gies which are avail­ab­le in the Maker­space work­shop, while also con­tri­bu­ting hands-on expe­ri­ence. By col­la­bo­ra­ting tog­e­ther with you, we look for­ward to incre­a­se our under­stan­ding about this tech­no­lo­gy and explo­re what may help your rese­arch acti­vi­ties in the future.

How to get your part prin­ted

Send a mail to Maker­spaceatphy​sik​.hu​-ber​lin​.de with the fol­lowing infor­ma­ti­on:

• What type of part do you want to print?
 Part design models wit­hin the for­mat of .stl or .ipt files are a very good start
• What are the expec­ted requi­re­ments of your app­li­ca­ti­on?
 Pay atten­ti­on to requi­re­ments on the mecha­ni­cal strength, tem­pe­ra­tu­re sta­bi­li­ty, and shape accu­ra­cy your finis­hed part should meet
• What type of mate­ri­al would you pre­fer?
 If your selec­ted mate­ri­al is prin­ta­ble by our devices, but not yet pre­sent in the Maker­space, you are invi­ted to bring
 it along into the Maker­space
