Tri-County Community College’s (TCCC) brand new MakerBot Replicator Z18 Laser 3D printer

Students in Trevis Hicks’ class gained the opportunity to become the first group to use Tri-County Community College’s (TCCC) brand new MakerBot Replicator Z18 Laser 3D printer.

“We printed a lime green nut and bolt and Yoda,” Hicks said.

While it still takes the new printer a little while to print the pieces, it is capable of creating high-quality and large products even over a Wi-Fi connection.

“Eventually, the students will be able to completely design a piece for the printer to create,” Hicks said. “Right now we’re just enjoying testing its capabilities.”
