As a way of rapid prototyping, 3D Printing at Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design has been available for students since 2010. Over time, the 3D printing capabilities have been expanded and updated to accommodate students’ needs.
Located on the ground level of Vol Walker Hall, the 3D Printing Lab is managed by the digital fabrication specialist and student assistants. The lab houses a Stratasys UPrint, an FDM printer that builds in ABS Thermoplastic and an Afinibot, which is also an FDM printer that uses PLA and other thermoplastic materials.
The lab is available to Fay Jones School students and faculty for design, coursework and research projects. More details about the requirements for using the facility are outlined in the Fabrication Laboratories Handbook found on the policy page. User files must be approved before a print can be scheduled. File consultation appointments can be made at designreserve.uark.edu.
