3D Printing Facilities at Duke University

Students, faculty, and staff have access to 56 3D printers in a facility that is open 24/7. Beyond commodity 3D printers, our researchers are engaged with state-of-the-art 3D printing – including laser sintering printers, polyjet, and the exciting new Carbon 3D SL process. Duke is well-poised to engage with this emerging technology.



The Foundry


The Foundry is a 7,600-square-foot student-focused, project-centered, collaborative space where students from across Duke University can build ideas from the ground up. We serve student teams working on both long-term and short-term projects, as well as providing space for workshops and program modules. Foundry users have access to a variety of project and prototyping supplies, a light machine shop, dedicated project spaces and secure storage options.

Our Mission:  The Foundry enriches the Duke student experience by providing dedicated design and project space for co-curricular and entrepreneurial activities.
