3D Systems is excited to empower students at Florida State University’s College of Communication & Information (CCI) by donating our suite of 3D printing tools. The CCI innovation lab will now include Cube 3 and CubePro 3D printers, a Sense 3D Scanner and a Touch 3D mouse.
“We are committed to empowering this generation of students with tomorrow’s skills today, and we believe that at the core of tomorrow’s necessary workforce skills is 3D design and printing,” said Leanne Gluck, Director of Social Impact for 3D Systems. “3D design and printing not only democratizes local production for established companies and professionals, but it also enables students to be the inventor, the designer, the artist, and to have the tools to start their own business if they want to.”
The CCI Innovation Lab will provide FSU students with the opportunity to prototype and iterate using cutting edge consumer 3D technology.
As Larry Dennis, Dean of the College of Communication & Information, says, “This gift will have a tremendous impact on FSU students…Providing students with ongoing access to state-of-the-art 3D printing technology is a great way to engage students and inspire them to think innovatively about the impact of this technology. 3D Systems’ gift has helped create a fantastic opportunity for FSU’s students and faculty.”
While the CCI Lab is currently in development, they will be offering training classes to student interested in using this 3D technology.
