Want to really impress your friend with a birthday gift? How about flying a drone to her front door that is MADE OF CHOCOLATE! It can be done, and it has been done, by a team of three Duke undergrads, with help from a chocolate maker called Chocolove.
You can try 3D printing at Duke for a project, research, or just for fun.
There are three 3D printing locations on campus:
- Come visit OIT's Co-Lab printer farm consisting of 50+ 3D printers located in the new Technology Engagement Center (TEC) in the Telcom Building on west campus. The 3D print lab is staffed daily to assist you with print jobs.
- Lilly Library has a small 3D printing studio on East Campus.
- Co-Lab studio at the Ruby. Visit our newest space at the Rubenstien Arts building.
Additionally, you can have 24-hour remote access to Duke's 3D print management system through the open-platform, cloud-based 3DprinterOS program. Any member of the Duke community can use this software to manage their print jobs, including remote printing.
You must first visit the Co-Lab to get an access code and a quick run down about how to use the system. Then you can login online anytime to begin 3D printing.
