Once your model is complete and your file verified, your last step is to print it!
Several 3D printers are available in the Mechanical Engineering Department or in some technical societies. The Library also offers a 3D-printing service in partnership with PolyFab, Polytechnique’s Fab Lab where you'll find numerous computer-aided manufacturing tools and devices.
You can also buy your own printer from one of the manufacturers listed below or use an on-demand printing service.
These services usually offer a wide range of materials (plastic, metal, ceramic, etc.), some of which may be quite expensive. Some also offer a resale service, allowing you to market your creations to the general public, whether they are works of art, toys or even specialized machinery parts.
