The Innovation Space is designed for collaborative prototyping, learning, and experimentation. It offers consultations with a librarian, 3D printers and scanners, virtual reality gear, electronics kits, anatomical models, workshops, poster printing, a button maker, and more. All projects - big or small, professional or personal - are welcome. Commercial activities are limited. Other restrictions may apply (such as 3D print job time limits, etc.)
We encourage all UMB students, faculty, and staff interested in experimenting with 3D printing, 3D modeling, virtual reality, etc., to visit the Innovation Space. If you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas for collaboration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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!
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.
