College of Architecture and Urban Planning

Tongji University’s new 3D printer enables students to quickly create 3D models of their designs on a Objet30 Pro 3D Printer.

The teaching staff at the College of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP) at Tongji University believe that creative thinking is just as important as professional skills. Teaching at CAUP prepares students to meet the challenges of modern scientific developments while also accommodating social demands.

In the past, CAUP relied on computer numerical control (CNC) and stereolithography (SLA) prototyping technologies. However the faculty felt these technologies’ shortcomings seriously limited students’ creativity.

Recognizing that being able to fully visualize design ideas was crucial to meeting CAUP’s goal, the college sought a 3D printing solution that it could install onsite for easy and cost-effective student use. The intent was to enable students to maximize their creativity by modeling whatever they could conceive. The CAUP selected the Objet30 ProTM 3D Printer because it fit all of its requirements.
