Information on 3D Printing

On this page you can find general information on desktop 3D printing. These are local contacts in the Sydney region who either provide access to 3D print machines, run courses on 3D printing or may provide general support or information on the industry; from their own experience.

I have also included some research information I recorded when I was looking to purchase a desktop 3D printer
