Due to high demand: MakerSpace expands 3D printing capabilities

And one more: Another 3D printer has now been delivered to the MakerSpace, the workshop for tinkerers and developers at Hof University of Applied Sciences. The reason for this is quite simple: “Despite the pandemic, the demand for 3D printing has risen steadily since the MakerSpace opened in December 2020,” says René Göhring, who oversees the MakerSpace. That’s why the decision was made to once again expand the printing capacity in the area of FDM printing processes

The new 3D printer with a build space of 330 x 240 x 300 mm successfully put into operation this week. “There are now two identical printers of this model on site, so we have better possibilities to meet the wishes and needs of students and companies,” René Göhring continued. The new 3D printer can be used immediately after consultation (email: rene.goehring@hof-university.de).


The “MakerSpace” at Hof University of Applied Sciences is a professional prototype workshop with high-tech machines, tools and software to realize technical ideas. The showpiece of the facility is a 3D printer with a printing volume of one cubic meter. In addition to the “BigRep”, one of only a very few printers of its kind at German universities, students now have access to a range of smaller 3D printers for various plastics, plotters, laser cutters, 3D scanners and special CAD software for designing models, among other things, in addition to the previous extensive laboratory machinery.
