The 3D Printing Ecosystem (3DPE) is a collaborative effort amoung multiple college on the Kennesaw and Marietta campus. Each location is designed to support the classroom implementation of 3D printing into the curriculum. CAD design is an integral part of the development of each space along with 3D printing. The needs for each college are different and each space will grow based on the individual requirements. For example, Architecture houses laser cutters and vacuum forming equipment; Art and Engineering have additional 3D scanning equipment; Business has equipment to make t-shirts. Stop by one of the locations to find out more.
Kennesaw State University 3D Center houses professional 3D printers and 3D scanners for prototyping, tooling and reverse engineering applications. Students taking Mechanical Engineering Technology, Engineering Design Graphics, and/or Manufacturing Engineering Technology courses apply direct digital manufacturing methods to take advantage of design and manufacturing freedom afforded by additive manufacturing.
The 3D Center also works with outside customers, individual students, and other departments that are applying 3D printing and 3D scanning to their product design cycle. We provide workshops, seminars, and informational sessions to those just getting started.
