Publication Date: 14 February, 2014


UCD Earth Institute 3D Printer now available to Institute members in Richview

Donal Lennon, Earth Institute BEL Lab Manager, successfully lead a team at the UCD Innovation Academy 3D Printer Hackathon competition that took place last Friday, 31 January. 40 teams took part in the flat-pack 3D printer building event and fully functional printers successfully built in the time allowed could go back to the School or Unit of the team members.

Donal's team got their printer up and running on the Friday and it is now located in the Institute's Richview building. Should any of the Institute's PIs have research in which the printer might be of use, they can contact Donal directly to discuss arrangements.
