New 3D Printer + Summer Work Experience = Very Happy Student!

We very much enjoyed having Harry here with us over the summer as a work placement student, and have been really quite sad to see him head back to De Montfort University to complete the final year of his Product Design Degree!

3D PrinterHarry really got involved in day to day life here at Plunkett Associates which was great and meant he got the most out of his time with us.

Design for Manufacture

He helped support several projects and saw first hand how design for manufacture influences prototyping and subsequent production options, something he’d been very keen to explore. 

Being able to see parts produced through the wide range of processes that we get involved in, was also useful for Harry to be able to link back to his design coursework. 

Brand new Raise Pro2 3D Printer

However the highlight was quite obviously the day we took delivery of a brand new Raise Pro2 3D Printer! Tasked with helping to get it set up, this was a pretty good day!3D Printer  

As for the printer, so far we’re pretty impressed with it. Used predominantly for R & D work and end of arm tooling we’ve not come across any issues as yet – but we’ll keep you informed.

Wishing Harry the best of luck

We hope Harry enjoyed his time with us and wish him the best of luck with his future career. We look forward to working with him again maybe one day in the not too distant future!
