The University of Nottingham 3D Printing Case Study

The University of Nottingham’s Department of Architecture and Built Environment is one of the UK’s leading centres for teaching architecture, urban design and sustainable energy technologies.

This video showcases the impact that 3D printing has had on the department and the students, giving them the ability to create robust and intricate models and ultimately bringing their ideas to life. The story highlights the importance that 3D printing plays in a student’s education, to ensure they are best placed to step into industry with a good understanding of new technology.

"We want to send out students that aren’t just amazing architects, but have them go out into industry and know how to use all of the available technology including 3D printing."

Sarah Thomas, Faculty of Engineering - The University of Nottingham
