U3D Printing Expo

U3D is Dublin’s first full-service, commercial-level, 3D printing facility. Located at University College Dublin, U3D offers researchers, design professionals, and the general public access to the most cutting edge technology.
Unlike most retail and on-line service providers, U3D can print in stainless steel, bronze, silver, cobalt-chromium, gold, nylon, t-glas, ninja-flex, lay-woo-D3, laybrick, conductive filament, and glow-in the dark options, as well as the standard rainbow of PLA and ABS offerings. Entry is Free of Charge.
