Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) known as 3D printing has been applied for applications in different fields such as aerospace, automotive, biomedical, and energy industries. Currently, with the rapid growth of this technology, there are a large number of 3D printing methods in the market. Each method has its own advantages, applications, and limitations. Materials used for printing also are classified into groups such as polymers, metals, ceramics, and cermets. Along with research on new materials, new printing technologies, 3D printers are more widely applied. For education field in universities, rapid prototyping from 3D printing enables to build 3D models for graphic design and rapid prototyping courses. On the basis of inheriting the available research for training in universities, the authors propose the design and manufacture of 3D printers using FDM printing method. This paper presents the results of design and fabricating 3D printer. The printing test results have demonstrated the functionalities of the designed machine.
