Library 3D Printer Aids Sci-Fi Costume Creation

The Kenan Science Library boldly goes where no library has gone before. Its latest mission: to 3D print costume parts for the Museum of Science Fiction in Washington, D.C.

When  costume production students from UNC’s Department of Dramatic Art needed to create replicas for an upcoming museum exhibit, they turned to the Makerbot 3D printer in the Science Library Makerspace.

Watch for the Makerbot printer in action shortly after the one-minute mark:

The Makerspace offers a way for all UNC students, staff, and faculty to be part of a creative community of makers and making on campus–with 3D printers and scanners, Arduino and Raspberry Pi electronics, and even a sewing machine. Learn more about the equipment and software in the Makerspace, or request a consultation.
