3D Printing


We are pleased to offer opportunities for you to create your own 3D printed models! In the spirit of creativity, innovation and a DIY-ethos, you will now be able to learn how to create and print your own 3D models. In order to use the 3D printers, you must be trained by a DiscoveryLab staff member. Drop in the DiscoveryLab during our hours of operation (M-Th, 8:30-8:30; Fridays, 8:30-4:30) to learn more.
