3D Printing at Duke University

3D printing is a revolutionary technology that is changing the way we design products and raising the potential of what is possible. Duke University has become a leader among universities by offering the largest free and open 3D printing lab in the education industry.

Students, faculty, and staff have access to 56 3D printers in a facility that is open 24/7. Beyond commodity 3D printers, our researchers are engaged with state-of-the-art 3D printing – including laser sintering printers, polyjet, and the exciting new Carbon 3D SL process. Duke is well-poised to engage with this emerging technology.
