3D Printing

Welcome to 3D printing at Queen's University's Clinical Simulation Center.

We have been busy experimenting with  3D printing and found a variety of uses for it around our center. There has been a wide range of uses from replacement parts for our high fidelity simulators, medical educational models, trophy's for competitions, 3d printed scans and more.

3d printing at CSC

We have a Tevo Tornado 3d printer that has a single extruder (Prints with one colour or material type) and has been customized with a few extra bells and whistles. We have added a raspberry pi to allow for remote monitoring and control, some upgraded parts to print flexible material and too many others to mention. The printers build surface is 300mm x 300mm x 400mm and is one of the largest 3d printers on campus.
