The NPS Space Systems Academic Group procured in July 2008 through FISC San Diego a Fortus 400mc  (link to Fortus web site where product and materials information can be found) rapid prototyping machine through school funds3D Printer.  The machine employs fused deposition modeling (FDM) for additive manufacturing of three-dimensional parts from computer-aided design (CAD) geometry.  This Wiki is intended to provide information for potential users of the machine.  The 3D printer is open to the NPS community on a cost-reimbursable basis for appropriate activities, e.g. instructional parts, research, and thesis projects.  Interested in producing parts?  Contact Dan Sakoda and provide the following information (login to Wiki required to access link).
