UBIT is giving UB students a chance to explore the emerging technology of 3D printing. Submit an item from Thingiverse.com for us to print from our 3D printer in Lockwood from April 2 to May 4, 2018—if we select your object, you get to keep it.
3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is the process of printing an object using a schematic designed on a computer. Still a relatively new technology, 3D printing is becoming more prominent in manufacturing industries, in biotechnology and among hobbyists.
The University at Buffalo’s own Digital Manufacturing Laboratory gives UB students an opportunity to learn more about the emerging technology behind 3D printing. To learn more about UB’s Digital Manufacturing Laboratory, visit the UB Shared Facilities page.
