3d printing Model

The model was produced on a 3d modelling software using  a clay model and images provided by the University of Southampton as guides. Its 3d topography was then translated into a 3d printing format to create 3d printing path.

We Used the Luzbot 3d printer from pour local maker space to print the model.

We chose PLA as material of choice. PLA is a bioplastic it is produced from lactic acid. Bioplastics are expected to make major contributions to environmental protection, because they reduce CO2 and because they are biodegradable.
