ST. CLOUD – Being within St. Cloud State University’s 3D printing lab is like getting a glimpse of the next.
Unlike 2D printing 3D printing creates physical objects you can hold. Each object is created layer by layer and can be created out of various materials.
St. Cloud State’s College of Science and Engineering Program Director, Bob Steffen says 3D printing devices are printing plastic, metal, biomass and food.
“There’s a printing device out there which prints pizza…not really certain what it tastes like but is does print pizza.” -Steffen
A printing device which prints pizza, this sounds much like to the Star Trek Replicator (food synthesizer). Was Gene Roddenberry right of the next?
A wide range of students take the 3D printing courses which include engineering majors and art majors. Steffen says the job outlook for those looking for a career involving 3D printing is affirmatory.
SCSU’s 3D printing lab is in the ISELF assembling. Any student can talk with an adviser to see if they can take a course in 3D printing.Chrissy Gaetke, WJONChrissy Gaetke, WJON
