On Friday, January 15, 2016, the UM3D Lab is having an open house from 12pm - 6pm. If you aren’t familiar with the UM3D Lab or even if you think you already know all about it, I encourage you to stop by because they have recently added some new services!

The official invitation:

Curious about new technologies, or have a project in mind but not sure where to start? The UM3D Lab Winter Open House will feature demonstrations of Virtual Reality, Rapid Prototyping, Motion Capture, 3D Scanning, Mobile Development, Animations, and more.

In addition to various technology, projects, and expertise, this semester we’re excited to display some new technologies:

  • Oculus Rift Head Mounted Display – try out the acclaimed headset and see what low-cost Virtual Reality can do.
  • Cube 3D Printers – ever want to print something in 3D? Come see the new Cube 3 printers that will be replacing the Cube 2.
  • Our 3D Printing Service now includes "Printrbot" 3D Printers.
  • Unreal Engine in Virtual Reality – The 3D Lab’s MIDEN (our 10×10′ immersive, stereoscopic, virtual reality space) is now capable of running environments created in the Unreal game engine. The Unreal Engine allows for a higher level of immersion in virtual environments by providing an array of realistic materials and atmospheric effects.

Join us to see the amazing technology and services available through the library. For more information about the available services and tools, visit UM3D Lab.  

The Lab is part of the Digital Media Commons and is located on the first floor of the Duderstadt Center off the central collaboration area.
