3D Printing | Department of Engineering

The multiple labs that comprise CP2S offer a plethora of 3D printing devices.  CP2S is interested in creating packaging that is printable at all scales; from household printing devices to industry-oriented production lines.  Top of the line rendering software and printing mechanisms housed at the DREAMS lab in Goodwin Hall lend the added benefit of the capacity to handle complex modeling capabilities.
