3D Printing

The UTSA Makerspace 3D Printing Laboratory creates new possibilities for rapid prototyping and manufacturing with the latest and greatest printing technologies.

Our Makerspace provides many opportunities for active learning and creative thinking in the next generation of students. UTSA members can print with us while learning about the process, as well as interact with experienced and passionate staff members. 

Our 3D Print Lab offers 2 different types of 3D printing, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereolithography (SLA). Below you will find a list of all the printers that our lab offers, as well as the materials that we are able to print in.
