Thanks to a generous donation by the parent of some Trinity students, the Center for Educational Technology has a handful of 3D printers and a 3D scanner, which are available to Trinity faculty, staff, and students. (Currently, printing is free for small jobs.)
This Tuesday, (March 8, during common hour (12.15-1.15), Dave Tatem will showcase the 3D printers, and talk a little bit about some of their uses on a liberal arts campus.
The Expo will be in the Center for Educational Technology, which is room 105 in the library. Cookies and coffee will be provided.

Here are some examples of the things that can be printed on the 3D printer.
Here is a 3D model of a famous tower from Paris, France, the Eiffel Tower.
Cool looking yellow and red model of a Tyrannosaurus. It is composed of more than dozen printed parts. The joints are able to move freely.
Here is a mascot of Trinity College, the Bantam. The details on this model is FANTASTIC!
