Arkansas Tech University recently purchased a 3D printer. It currently resides on the third floor of the library. Students can submit designs to be made in the printer for very little cash. Although an expensive start up for the university, it is paying off for the students who get to see their creations come to life.
Designs that have already been printed include the jeep shown in the image above, a small model of the Eiffel Tower,as well as a model of The Millennium Falcon. Each design costs on average between two or three dollars depending on its size and weight. Students can submit their design through the website to be added to the wait list for printing.
