Ultimaker 3 (Extended)


The Ultimaker 3D printer takes CAD digital files and converts them into a solid 3D object. The objects are created by continuous layering and hardening of plastic filament. The 3D printers can also create a solid object out of a digital file from the 3D scanner by scanning existing objects. Some of the common CAD software used with 3D printers are Solidworks, Auto CAD, Tinkercad, Blender, Sketchup, and several others. (Note Solidworks is available to students). Prints may take up to several hours to complete, and students will be given a limit of roughly 3 hours of print time per week. Software is available in the Makerspace to help provide estimates on print times.

Epson Perfection V800 Photo Flatbed Scanner



The Epson Flatbed scanner is capable of scanning photos, slides, and other flat media into high resolution images which can be modified using included software to remove dust scratches and imperfections.

Additional Features

  • Precise color and detail — get extraordinary scans with state-of-the-art 6400 dpi optical resolution1

  • Remarkable tonal range and shadow detail — 4.0 Dmax for smooth gradations and fine shadow detail

  • Epson's exclusive Dual Lens System — automatically selects from two lenses for optimum results based on the media being scanned

  • Automatically remove dust and scratches — Digital ICE Technologies remove many surface defects from film and prints to minimize costly retouching

  • ReadyScan® LED light source — for fast scans with no warmup time required

  • Batch scanning — digitize multiple slides, negatives, medium- and large-format film with included film holders

Einscan-S 3D Scanner


The 3D scanner can make a digital render of a solid object placed on the turntable. The object that is scanned can be saved as an STL file, which is used to 3D print, or as an OBJ file, which can be opened with most 3D CAD applications, like SolidWorks or AutoDesk. This 3D scanner also has the ability to capture color and texture information and applies what is scanned to the 3D render of the object.
