UBC Rapid is an engineering student team at the University of British Columbia that grew out of a self-sponsored design project done by three Engineering Physics students. Our main interest is in rapid prototyping technology – specifically 3D printing. 3D printing allows people to quickly move from a virtual model to a physical version for testing via 3D printers. We also offer low-cost high quality 3D printing services to UBC students, staff, and faculty.
Our Printing Service
Starting at $0.15 per gram, our 3D printing service is one of the most affordable on campus.
Our 5 operational printers means we offer the fastest turnaround time on campus.
With multiple resolution and infill settings, we offer a large range of quality prints for different purposes and price points.
We offer free 3D CAD modelling assistance to anyone who needs to clean up or fix their model files for a better print.
