    3D printing is provided by a ZCorp Spectrum Z510 printer.  This is a colour plaster-based printer which requires infiltration of the printed piece to fully harden.  The specifications of this printer can be found on the ZCorp site. For an estimate of the printing costs, please send your model to the PMP studio technician, Simon Overstall soverstall@ecuad.ca.  Please note that we may not be able to accomodate all requests due to time and resource constraints.  Priority is given to internal requests.
