3D printing, scanning, and sculpting in a library? You bet! University Libraries has 3D technologies in our main and branch libraries for all students, faculty, and staff to use. Students can either take one of our classes and learn how to work with 3D objects on their own or send a digital file of their virtual design for library staff to print.
For our students, seeing ideas come to life is invaluable. Whether printing a topical map for a geography class, a molecule for a chemistry class, a product design for a business class, an educational tool for use by pre-service teachers, or a model of a chair for an interior design class, our students are learning and developing new skills to empower themselves for the future.
Technology is always changing, and knowledge of 3D technologies is one of the ways we can help UA students compete in the workforce when they graduate. We need your help in upgrading our 3D technologies and workstations, allowing students to create these complex 3D designs for their course work.
The University Libraries goal for BamaBlitz is to raise $20,000. The University Libraries Leadership Board will match every dollar you contribute up to $20,000, so do not miss this great opportunity to support our UA students!
