3D Printing Lab

The 3D Printing Lab was established to provide students with the means to get hands-on experience with 3D printing.  Interested students will have the opportunity to learn to use 3D printing technologies and apply the experiences they learn to their studies.  After receiving the proper training and certification, students may use the lab 3D printers to create items for their school projects.  The 3D Printing Lab is located in Riverside 4005 and is managed by Professor Belkhouche and the 3D Printing Club.  Students interested in learning how to 3D print for themselves are encouraged to contact the 3D Printing Club to get involved in exciting 3D printer-related projects and learn about training opportunities.  The lab currently has one Duplicator 4 3D printer and is in the process of building additional printers to meet the growing student demand.

The resources necessary to make this lab possible were provided by the 2014 UEI Campus Grant Program.
