Interested in 3D Printing?
Along with a new printer, 2024 will bring a new process for 3D printing at inventHQ. With a focus on providing opportunities to learn new technology and skills, staff will no longer be preparing and running 3D prints - instead, you'll learn how to start your own prints. More details to come in the new year!
