The Innovation Space is designed for innovative and collaborative hands-on learning experience. It offers two virtual reality stations, two 3D printers, two 3D scanners, a plotter for poster printing, Google Cardboard viewers, a large DNA model, two molecule kits, a button maker, and more. The staff provides an orientation as well as workshops on a regular basis for those who are new to 3D printing and 3D scanning.
We encourage all UMB students, faculty, and researchers who are interested in experimenting with 3D printing, 3D modeling, and virual reality to visit our new Innovation Space. If you have any suggestions or ideas for collaboration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* The HS/HSL Innovation Space is available for EDUCATIONAL purposes only. NO COMMERCIAL OR BUSINESS-RELATED USE is allowed. *
Explore the world of immersive virtual reality with our Vive headset and collection of VR apps.
Transform your idea into a physical object with 3D printing! Taz 5 supports a variety of materials from HIPS, PLA, and ABS, to wood, metal, and stone-like.
The N2 printer is best suited for projects that require higher resolution needs. Its smallest z-height layer resolution is 10 microns, and prints with PLA and other filament.
The Afinia H480 is a small but reliable 3D printer. It has one extruder and supports the PLA filament.
Create high fidelity 3D models of physical objects with our NextEngine 3D scanner and software.
Try 3D scanning with an object of your choice! You can scan an object as small as a book or as big as a person. Yes, you can save the resulting 3D model and 3D print it!
Download VR apps of your choice from Google Play and Apple App Store. Use the Cardboard viewer to try them out yourself.
Print your posters for presentations at conferences and other meetings. Poster printing is available to all UMB faculty, students, and staff and University of Maryland Medical Center staff.
This 2.25" button making system includes everything you need to make high-quality 2.25" buttons. See our "Button Making 101" to find out how to make buttons quickly and easily!
Draw in 3D by extruding heated plastic filament that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure. You'll be able to draw up into the air and create anything you can think of.
Come play with the human DNA model. Assemble and disassemble while learning about the DNA structure! Check out the assembly instruction.
Explore the chemical structure of molecules! You can build methane, ethane, benzene, acetone, and more.
Cut, paste, and make things easily with cutting tools on the large surface provided by the four workbenches.
