Used for safely working with chemicals and potentially harmful vapors.
Used for producing complex shapes made of various elastomers for tunably-compliant materials research.
Used for rapid prototyping when small, custom parts are needed. The printer in the M3 Robotics Lab is a Lulzbot TAZ 6, capable of printing with PLA, HIPS, ABS, PET, co-polyester, nylon, polycarbonate, wood and metal composites, and more. The TAZ 6 also has a large build envelope that can print parts nearly as big as a soccer ball.
