The University of Bath pioneers new printing technology

The University of Bath is leading the way with pioneering new printing technology and the world is watching these developments excitedly. It may sound like something from a science fiction film, but we are assured that this is all fact: printers that can produce 3D objects are being rolled out across the globe. Dr Adrian Bowers from the University of Bath began developing Replicating Rapid Prototyping systems, or 3D printers, in 2005 and these are now beginning to be taken seriously by the science and engineering world. This is not seen as being a challenge to more traditional printing companies based in the Bath area because these 3D printers will largely be used to produce 3D models and prototypes of things like furniture or engine parts rather than for traditional services like business card printing. Bath residents and printers alike are excited about the scientific significance of the printing developments unfolding in the city and this is attracting attention from the science and print communities around the world.
