What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is process of creating physical three dimensional objects from digital files or models. Additive processing is used, in which successive layers of filament is laid down in thin layers until the entire model is complete.

Due to the current closures at the University of Akron, the 3D Print Submission is only available for Academic Print. No personal prints will be processed.
