3DGence – a leading Polish manufacturer of low-budget 3D printers has had good relationships with Silesian University of Technology. Its graduates created a prototype of a remarkable 3D printer  – 3DGence One, which is getting more and more popular.  Also R&D specialists of the company graduated from this University. 3DGence decided to repay Silesian University of Technology for knowledge and support given to the company by creating a machines park which helped them to establish the first in Poland university farm of 3D printers.

The farm was established in a historic building of Silesian University of Technology, where there was formerly a Laboratory of Machining. Now, old machines are replaced with 3D printers 3DGence One. They could be used by students, private persons and specialists from enterprises connected with 3D printing technology, who need them to complete their current projects.

An execution of this plan was possible thanks to professor’s Arkadiusz Mężyk helps, who became a rector of Silesian University of Technology. Professor Mężyk is a friend and great enthusiast of 3D printing technology. When he was a dean of Department of Mechanics and Technology, he opened a speciality of additive technologies. Thanks to him it was possible to create the 3D printers farm.

The farm will make easier to learn students how to use additive technologies. The farm created together with 3DGence the farm equipped with 3D printers and also high-quality 3D lasers.

3DGence emphasizes a professional use of its devices. These 3D printers are dedicated for industry, but it is still working on broadening of its application. Recently, 3DGence One was presented in popular science programme Sonda2 about use of 3D printing in medicine, broadcast in  Polish Television.  It was used to print a copy of a jaw, which was 3D scanned before.

The project shows, that 3D Gence tries to apply its solutions in several branches of science and technology. All of these actions have a common denominator – professional use of its devices. 3D Gence donated eight  3D printers but it is going to develop the farm and broaden it of more devices.
