3D printer and scanner in SLIS Collaboratory

October 03, 2014

See the Makerbot in action in the SLIS Collaboratory!

Thanks to a generous gift from one of our trustees, SLIS has a MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer and a MakerBot Digitizer 3D scanner available for faculty, staff, student, and alumnae/i usage. The printer can be found in the Collaboratory located in room P-314 on the third floor of the Palace Road Building.

Workshops will be held for SLIS faculty, staff, students, and alumnae/i to see the MakerBot in action. We are collaborating with SLIS faculty on ways to incorporate usage of the 3D printer and scanner for hands-on activities in classes this fall.

If any community members would like an overview/demo of the printer, please contact the SLIS Tech Lab at slislab@simmons.edu.

Happy Making!
