The Library has just taken possession of the first MakerBot Replicator 5th Gen 3D printer as well as a MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner.

The two pieces of equipment will begin to form part of the services that the Library can offer researchers and will be situated in the Digital Scholarship Studio on Level 5 of Fisher.

Once we’ve had the equipment installed and a number of staff trained we will be training groups of staff. There are a number of things that we obviously need to consider, like pricing and booking, and we are working on that at the moment, however we are very excited about the arrival of this technology, which offers researchers new dimensions to their research and their ability to prototype ideas.
