Prototyping and Testing the 3D Printer

Prototyping the 3D Printer

Build a scaled-down prototype of the multi-gantry 3D printer. This printer must be able to 3D print a complex 3D model with at least 4 different print materials at the same time. 

Testing the 3D Printer

Design a complex 3D model in a 3D software that has at least 4 different print materials. Set up the 3D printer and calculate the time it takes to 3D print the model. Compare the results by printing the same model in a regular 3D printer and document your findings and recommendations.
